Hey, as you may see I am a newbie to the forums. I have been mountain biking for almost a week now and i have jumped off stairs, get a huge amount of air. To help me out, I have heard from one person that you should land on your back tire first. Then I read in a magazine that you should land on your front tire first. Is this all of the time? Or is this only for jumps that have landings to them? Knowing that I have been jumping off of stairs and getting a decent amount of air off of ramps, could some one please help me out on for a smoother and a safter landing for mountain biking?

Im no jumper but frm my understanding you want to land on your rear tire first to prevent endos. I have never read you want to land on your front tire

You're too funny Man! :p
The only time I can think of wanting to land on the front tire would be to throw the Grim Reaper off the back of my seat.... :eek:
