A nice sunny day in the mountains so I thought that I'd take a ride on my new bike down Victoria Pass.All went well until I hit about 60 km/h and the bike suddenly began to violently shudder. A…Continue
I just got this from Clover Moore/City of Sydney:Connected Cycleways a Must I’m writing to you because you previously contacted me in support of a connected bike network into and through central…Continue
"I use nothing but my phone for navigation. I use 2 mapping apps on it: Locus map and Memory Map.

"Had it happen a few times when I tried a shorted stem. Ended up going back to the longer one as the bike was more stable through the corners. Only a centimetre difference on the stem length but made a huge difference in handling."
"29er does it to when it has the big 2" tyres on. Itdoes it in slo-mo, maybe at 25-30kmh with the bars waggling in big wide slow wobbles!
As said previously though, I would be seriously freaked out if this ever happened at high speed with hands…"
