I have a Trek 7000 that I got last spring. I really like the bike, but when I got it, it took me about a month to really get accustomed to the handling differences between it and my 90's Huffy MTB. I was really liking it by the end of the summer, then I switched back to the MTB for winter. After the first few days, it felt like home again.
Now I'm back on the Trek and I'm going through the same acclimation period. I'm trying to figure out what may contributed to the handling differences I'm experiencing. It seems as if the bike is twitchier in regard to it's handling. It seems less nimble but I'm also more likely to veer off the straight line with it.
Is it all geometry? Or if I got different handlebars might that help?
