I am very new to mountain biking, so it may just be inexperience, but I am starting to psych myself out because whenever I go up a steep hill my front wheel levitates off the ground and it really scares me. Today it lifted and jumped sideways. Now I get nervous just approaching steep hills and quit before I should just to avoid it happening again.
I have been told to keep my weight forward which I try to do, but if I go too forward it feels really awkward and my knees hit my arms, chest etc.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
