I've gone from a 250 to a 450 and whenever I get any air, I feel like I'm totally off balance. Its pathetic, I can't seem to find my center. Any ideas? Anyone else had that problem? Any help would be nice. I hate it when ten year olds make me look like a punk. Thanks.

the 450's have alot more rotating mass,and therefore more gyroscopic effect making it harder to flip around,that and its a little heavier :D just remember the more time your back wheel is engaged with the ground the faster your gonna go :D i'm no pro jumper(too gravitationaly challenged) but you might try clutching it in the air and tap the back brake :D
