Speed Wobble on a Cervelo Prodigy?(5 posts)

Speed Wobble on a Cervelo Prodigy?Yellowlab
Feb 4, 2002 6:55 AM
I recently bought a Cervelo Prodigy steel Bike and have been very pleased witht the few rides I have been on since I bought it in November. Last weekend I went out and start to get some speed up (About 35mph) and the bike began to wobble. Not to bad but I didn't want to push any harder because I assumed the wobble would get worse. I wanted to know is this something that can be fixed or is it my rookie riding? Or is this a problem with the bike that I should take up with the LBS where I bought it? Are there any other rookie mistakes that would cause this?

Any input would be much appreciated as I am concerned.

Thanks

can't remember what causes it(slight
memories of it being similar to car
tyres, aeroplane propshafts and bridges)
if you move your thighs in to touch the
top tube, assuming that your coasting
this changes the balance of the bike and
thus the speed at which the wobble kicks
in.
there could be other causes of course
something loose maybe.

You should probably try posting this on their forum:

Gerard (of Cervelo) posts there pretty often.
I'd like to hear how you like the Prodigy otherwise and what else you compared it to.

Check the headset. My Bianchi got wobbly as came from the LBS overtightened when I bought it. Showed up after about 100+ miles.
Under braking or all the time?mixinbeatz
