Front end wobble?(3 posts)

Front end wobble?xx
Feb 7, 2002 12:01 PM
Other than the obvious, front tire out of true (which isn't the case), what else would cause front end wobble? This is a recent occurance. Mainly occurs at coasting speeds with no hands on the bars.

I am having problems keeping back wheel spokes tighten - this may be a contributing factor, not sure Any suggestions and what to check. Also - headset is tight.
Thanks for the help.

headset would be my first guess.
also check front hub for play and adjust. I had similar problem with DT240 turned out older model used "loose" bearings new ones fixed all

btw RU sure it wasn't side wind?

Thanks for the input. Headset was my first guess as well but it doesn't seem to be the situation. I'll check the front hub. btw, definitely not a side wind, although we get enough of those here in Chicago.
