the subrosa alemeda (when it comes out)
fly tierra
fly luna
mutiny mystic

basically any frame with a 75degree headtube or steeper, is considered twitchy.

Sounds like you need a 21" TT, half an inch isnt really alot.

maybe s3.5 aitken 21tt
you have the same case of my friend
so he try to change his frame for a longer top tube
the longer the toptube is you have more room for pulling and leverage

Its not your frame. Its the way your taking off on the 180. You have to get leveled in the air. If you land in a rocket position obviously your knee will hit the cross bar. I had this same problem a few years back when I started riding and I thought it was the frame too. Till this day I am still riding the same frame and I also got bigger. Buying a new frame will be a complete waste of money.

ya man it sounds like you would benefit from a longer frame.

Most newer frames have a steeper headtube angle so it wont be too hard to find a new frame.

Check
fit 3.5
s/m ltf
midnight moonlite.

Also just continue to practice them and you will learn to keep your body away from the bars when you land.
