speed wobbles you were getting?? Some guy said in response to your post that he could email you some info from his research to you, did you ever get this? I would be interested to see it if you did. Thanks.

Turns out that all large frames fall victim to this to some degree.
The longer the Top tube and the head tube, the more you are likely to get.
My frame is large, 65c-t seat tube, and 24c-c top tube, and it gets the wobbles once in a while.
Solution? Stand up for a moment, or do the knee against the top tube trick.
I have heard that even large Ti frames get this as well, as well as Aluminum, don't know about carbon.
I suppose that they could get rid of this by really over building the tubes, but then you would have one heavy frame, which defeats the purpouse.
In the end, the wobble is not that big a deal, as it only occurs once in a great while.
Cheers.
Giro, YEAH!
