I just noticed that if I give my saddle a good whack (standing next to the bike, not on it), the whole thing vibrates noticeably for a long time (over 10 seconds). I can feel the vibrations in the saddle, frame, etc. Is that normal for a steel bike? I've never really noticed it while riding, but since everybody always seems to talk about vibration damping as a good thing...
Sounds like a tuning fork with wheels!! Cool.Quack
