When I land while riding street on my bike, I feel this huge unpleasent clunk.

Someone's mentioned to me that I may not be landing smooth, and someone else suggested my frames to rigid.

If it's the former, how does one land smooth when landing to flat?

it's singlespeed, buts it got a derailler as a chain tensoner.

Like I've said a bunch of times, it's the kind of feeling you get when you hit a metal pole or an aluminum bat against a tree.

I just pumped up my back tire, it was due for some air. I'll have to see tommorrow.

I remember having this issue before and just dealing with it, but then I started actually getting air while street riding.

Earlier, I pumped up my tires and it was less, but there was still a clunk when I landed a lot of times off of stair gaps.

Anyway, in trials, it looks like they're landing rear wheel first half the time and both wheels at the same time the other half.
