I am getting some wobbles on my new bike riding no hands esp. downhill. I did not have that kind of
flatter on any of my old bikes. I have Simano 7700 wheels w/16spokes, they are somewhat "aero". I
had Mavic Cosmos Carbon, they did not do that as far as I can remember. Could be frame aligment? The
bike is Ti and a reputable brand (I think). I am relatively technical and would appreciate people
not to suggest to check how true my wheels are -they are perfect, so is headset.

Thanks.

Being relativley technical, this fix will be easy for you. The next time you're flying down hill
no handed and those pesky speeed wobbles start to ruin your day. Take a silca frame pump and jam
it in your front wheel, no more speeed wobble and one less clown on the road riding his bike down
hill no handed.

You're Welcome.

don't go down that road. try some wheels with no profile like the mavic cosmos. it is the aero
profile that causes the wobble.
