Another idea along the lines of longer stem/TT, lower bars would be a lower BB too

Having said that, I wouldn't rule out technique, particularly if you find yourself touching down further down the landing. A lot of people new to trails or who have hard crazy crashes early on have an automatic apprehension of nosing landings. Part of the reason I hate doing airs on a quarter still to this day is that I had a few hard nose cases (and have the chipped teeth to match) on a dirt quarter I used to ride. When I got the chance to ride real trails in the 90's I was quite concerned about it, particularly because trails got bigger and steeper and were gnarlier than the jumps at the local race track I was used to. To help allay this I learnt to nose bonk smaller tables - basically you intentionally dip the front end on the way over so that your front wheel rolls along the top a bit, and then you lift it up again quickly before the landing. Maybe, if apprehension is your caper, that might help

I tried lower bars. I swapped out my Credence 8.7 rise for Grand Slams 8.25 but it didnít really help much

Iím 5í7Ē, riding a 20.5 frame. Iíve lengthened my chain stay length recently yet, for some reason Iím still landing back-end heavy every time I ride trails, especially when I try to tuck for height. Iíve tried to correct this consciously while riding, but itís still happening.

Do I need a longer top tube? I feel comfortable on my bike, but it feels twitchy in the air, almost sketchy.

Current frame is a Fit VH3. 74.5 HT, 13.75 CS, 11.7 BB & 20.5 TT.

Thanks

I love it, always wanted one of those woodgrain Mosh sprockets. Snagged a couple pewter guard ones off eBay recently. The red doesn't really work but if that's an original Odyssey color it'd be a shame to paint over. I feel like the white forks going to a white hub wouldn't look right.
