Topic - Road bike Shimmy, wobble, weave - HELP !

Aberdeen Rambler - on 30 Jul 2013
Hi,
has anyone got any experience of this occasional hazard of road bikes ? My partner got a new CF road bike last year and in the course of 1 year has had 5 serious shimmy that easily could have sent her down the road at 30 mph. I have checked wheel bearings and steering headset - all of which are tolerable, and the stem length is ideal in terms of view of the front wheel axle... there may be scope to increase this by 1cm . This has happened on a range of road surfaces from rough to smooth tarmac, normally downhill, but there has always been some wind to initiate the problem.

Could it have anything to do with a woman on a mens geometry frame ?

cheers Bill
