try tightening your cranks/chain. if that doesn't work then i wouldn't worry about it, unless your hopping down stuff that is pretty big..

Huh?
How in the hell do you do that when you hop your feet scoop up which would move the cranks forward moving the whole drivetrain.

The chain tension shouldn't affect you landing like that. It sounds like you're either being too heavy on your front or back foot. When you tuck your bike and you're leveled out in the air your cranks should be pretty flat at that point

Just hop and suck you knees up and don't move your up or down or what ever your doing don't do that.

Somethings weird win my hop. I can hop pretty high. But I don't tuck. Ot level out right. Like my but isn't near my rear tire. Its more above my seat. And arms are straight. Makes ga. Height rails a bit harder because my back end doesn't get as high.

try pushing your bars foward and kicking back your feet mostly with your back foot

Practice, practice, practice guys. Just the other day when I was teaching my oldest how to hop, I screwed up and landed nose wheel first like the dukes of Hazzard or some shit. I said " well don't land like a tard like I just did!" Practice hoping over a banana box or something after you get some height to them.

That's like me. Always nosediving it a bit..

I think you're naturally putting less force on on foot. creating this effect.
If you can still hop shit there's no problem, just focus on keeping the feet at the same height.

thats all it is. i used to nosedive but i wasnt pulling my front wheel up enough. what helped me was focusing on doing it almost slower and more fluidly. now i can hop around stem height.

I dont say stupid things, just no one knows what im talking about.

Hey this might sound stupid but, when you hop, do you hop off of your back foot? I think if you concentate on hopping with both feet and pulling both up you would level out better/hop higher.
