'Flexy' wheels in corners?(3 posts)

'Flexy' wheels in corners?dave woof

Got some new Rolf Vector Comps - in fast downhill corners it seems like the wheels 'flex' or give a little... Feels a bit like cornering when tire pressure is a bit too low. Anyone ride these and notice this or is it just imagination??

Possibly turn up the tension of the spokes... double check with the manufacturer though to make sure you won't break anything though. I did this with a pair of spinergy spox mountain bike wheels and it works.
Yes, increase tension.guido

Do the spokes sing when you pluck them, or do they just thud? That should tell you.
