Wobble of doom?
Went out for a ride today for a few hours. Not my usual road loop.
Was riding at speeds up to 55km/h. While descending one hill i noticed that my handlebars were wobbling sideways slightly, back and forth. Like a vibration, but more of a wobble than a vibration. This prevented me of riding down the hills at 60+km/h
. I wasn't pedaling; it wasn't ME who was causing the wobble. It really made me feel uncomfortable on the bike (the "oh, i'm going down!!!" uncomfortable feeling).
It only really happened when i was riding over 45km/h. Under 45km/h, it wasn't noticeable at all.
I'm not riding a bike with high quality parts.
Any idea what it could be? Or... am I just being a ***** and imagining it when I bring it up to speed?
I was in a crash a while ago + haven't ridden over 40km/h since then (that's why i noticed it now). I'm wondering if something might've been knocked out during the crash, or something got messed up since I last went that fast.
