Long time reader, first time poster
I recently bought an 07 Giant Thermo 1 and noticed it pulling to the left when I take
my hands off the bars.
The front wheel seems to be aligned properly in the forks, but the rear wheel is 5mm
closer to the left chain stay and central at the seat stays.
Quite noticeably closer to the left with a wider tyre and also difficult to get the wheel
in and out.
I have tried another rear wheel and still have this problem.
The bike shop says in regard to the pulling "you shouldn't take your hands off the bars then"
and about the alignment, 'its nothing to worry about' "if you want a bike thats aligned
precisely you have to spend a lot more". They told me I could have the Giant sales rep have a
look, but he would probably just redish the wheel to move it over a bit.
Is this a problem anyone else would worry about, or am I just being fussy?
