Setback/Layback Seat Posts Q

Hello Peeps,

Setback/Layback Seat Posts, Will they move my weight more over the rear of the bike?

Been out jumping today, nothing massive, but bike is fighting to nose dive, regardless of different techniques used.

ie plenty fast with: Pump suspension (preload?) before take off, sharp tug on bars before launch, leaning back as far as My arms will let me.

Any experienced suggestions welcome.

    They will move your weight backwards, but as you are not, presumably, sitting whilst jumping, it won't make any difference.
    And don't pull on the bars.

    Hi Cooldad,

    Thanx for the advice, yeah I'm standing while jumping, and that's now obvious to me it won't help, :roll:

    And don't pull on the bars, ok, back to practice tomorrow.
