searching for a feeling

I have been getting a feeling from bikes the last few years that i dont recall ever having before, I've had it on 3 different bikes, and no body else seems to know what I'm talking about when i bring it up
que yuk yuks.
but seriously sometimes when i am taking sick air, it feels like my bars get pulled one way or the other, this is when taking off with bars straight, maybe turning them some in the air, it feels like the front end wants to turn more then i am inputting, and the steering movement does not feel free, pulling back.
it doesn't happen all the time, i can hit the same jump 10 x and it may happen once
but it messes with me when it does. i become very focused trying to get the front tire back where i want it,
is this a gyro effect that I'm totally missing?
i dont think it could be steering stem?

thanks for any help from a total head case

You're not a head case! Your triple clamps are bent, no just kidding, check your front wheel offset

How are you hitting the jump? Sitting down, always standing, out over the front?

Cause the only thing I could initially think of is sometimes you can get a similar feeling when you're forks are too soft and you hit a jump in a fairly front-wards or aggressive position, the forks push deep into the stroke and the energy deflects and pushes the front out to the side a little.

I think you need to hold on loosely BUT don't let go.

Totally Bro! When this happens I instantly go to the gym, hit my 1 rep max on bench, then come back to the track. Problem solved Bro.

Like a front end seat bounce?

Forks are damped, though, so how can they have a spring effect? We should discuss . . .

It’s more or less the energy gets transferred through the front of the bike and causes stuff to flex. Testing with Supercross makes this standout more as riders will complain about not being able to drive through a rhythm section when things are too soft or flex too much. The energy transfers around and can make the bike do weird things.

You think adding rebound would fix this?

Four stroke phenomenom. Too many things whirring around inside the engine cases upsetting proper flight characteristics.

Binding front brake. Bent disc?

In regards to the levers. You have to be sure that you know when to hold em and also you have to know when to fold em. Hope this helps.

2 thoughts.

1. Is your finger on the front brake? It could be engaging just enough to cause the front wheel to stop and turn. I had that issue on a down hill MTB. Normally you'd get a drop of the front end too.

2. Technically one side of the front end (forks/wheel/brake caliper/rotor) is heavier. Especially with the SFF style forks where one fork leg is lighter than the other. It could pull the bars slightly off center from that unbalance however minuscule it actually is.

If you cling too tightly, you're gonna lose control.

The amount of astroturfing going on on this website is getting unreal. Multiple versions of the internet water army are out in full force. Its to the point where the majority of posts are coming from these paid forum posters.

much ty. How to spot a paid forum poster/artificial forum traffic producer (see list of actions/phrases below):

Copius pattern amounts of phrases like “Anyone have”..., “Anybody know?”.... and their variations.

Thoughts?
Any help is appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
