    29er light front end???

    I'm running an 09' 29er 4 (Caffine Frame) and the front end seems extremely light when climbing. My first instinct is to move the saddle forward and consider a longer stem, but since this is my first year with this bike in this terrain, I thought I would ask for some suggestions. HELP!!!

    light front ends are good

    I like the front end of my bikes to be light, it makes it easier to manual and loft the front wheel over obstacles.

    You need to adjust your body position when climbing. Move up on your seat our slightly hover over your seat. If you start to spin out on your back wheel you have gone to far. If you read Ned Overends book "Mountain bike like champion, he describes very usefull points on climbing and body position.
