    i just got a new bike (zoo pit-bull) with a pure fork whick makes the bike 1080 wheelbase, and i cant seem to tap anymore. On my raceline rhino i could go about 3 ft, but the raceline had a 1035 wheelbase. I think it is something to do with timeing. I always seem to miss the tap, but if i get it i can't get any jump. any answers would help me

    cheers

    You just go it so guess what you need ? A bit of riding on it , you need to acommodate with the wheelbase , don't worry , just ride it and in no time the touch hops will be much more easier with a bigger wheelbase.
    Also try it with a slightly bigger runup until you get the right pedal stroke/distance timing.
