SliderWV Posted July 18, 2007 Report Share Posted July 18, 2007 I've noticed over the years that when my tires are really wearing down and getting flat across the bottom the bike starts to handle in a totally different way, particularly at slow speeds. What I notice is that the bike seems to steer all by itself when you lean the slightest bit. At slow speeds I feel it most - the wheel wrenches the bars in the direction of the turn. At higher speeds it seems the bike wants to remain more upright and if I am lazy with my body I have to hold bar pressure throughout the turn. Why exactly is this? What is happening, in the sense of physics? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
