I recently moved from my old Genesis 26" Core hardtail to a Salsa Horsethief (29", full suspension)
One thing I've found about the new bike is that I often fluff jumps - with the front wheel nosediving. Not all the time, but a lot. I make a concious effort to move my weight back but still....
Is there something different I need to do due to the bigger wheels or rear suspension? I'm not some super-jump freeride guy - these are just jumps off rocks or things on the trails (think Spooky Woods at Glentress). Was always Ok on my old bike.
If it makes a difference I wear SPDs. I've also set the sag on both fork and shock and set the rear shock's rebound to be slower than the forks'.
I'm going back to Glentress on Saturday so will practice on the jump park there - just want some tips!
I've also booked in for jump-school at Tweed-Love - £10, bargain! It's not for a couple of months though.
