comment How do I cycle up steep rocky ground?
Might want to mention moving your weight to get the front wheel easily over rock steps or roots. Keep the momentum going!

comment What effect does changing the stem length have on my bikes handling
Well. I've ended up with a 70mm Nukeproof stem. After a month of riding it really has made a big difference to the ride and my confidence levels. The shorter stem has made it easier to keep to the trail in the twisty stuff. I now look over the handlebars at the front axle instead of under. When jumping I can get my weight far enough back to fly level. Yay!

Poor technique is definitely part of the problem. The bike also feels nose heavy on steep rock slabs. I have quite short arms and a long body.
