Ask Pinkbike: Fox 38 Damper Tuning, Short Cranks for eMTBs, Axle to Crown Heights, & How to Avoid Going Over the Bars
The best jump advice I've seen is the trampoline analogy. Regardless of suspension setup, think of the jump face as a large trampoline. Just like a trampoline, as you compress into the trampoline (jump face), if you remain stiff, you're at risk of being thrown around in the air in whatever direction your stiff body is biased towards. Think of jumping into a trampoline where one leg remains stiff as you drop and load into it, and the other leg/hip is loose. All the spring in the trampoline will send you off kilter since the force will transmit through your one leg which is off center from your center of gravity. Conversely, if you load your body on the trampoline attempting to balance how the force goes through both your legs, then you will jump controlled and straight and your height will be determined by how much you compressed into the trampoline and then 'boosted' off as it springs up. The face of a kicker/jump is like a trampoline. If you're stiff as you go into a lip, the front wheel will compress initially and then unload as you continue up the lip. Your weight will drop back then into your rear wheel as it continues up the lip and as you leave the lip all that force built up will be transmitted to the rear of the bike and you will begin to pitch.

Bike Check: Taylor Vernon's Custom Painted Prime Rocket
@lkubica: Air pressure seems correct to me for the older style Boxxer based on my experience. If anything his pressure seems a little low but that's probably because he's using 3 volume tokens.

First Ride: SRAM's New GX Transmission
@mikekazimer: I don't recall prior posts addressing missed shifts? I think @pwn1's criticism sounds a bit cross making it easy to dismiss, but I do think there is something in there that is worthy of some reflection considering the language used in previous AXS posts and then this one.
