    steering alignment issue... after new wheel??

    So I just replaced my front wheel and tested the new wheel out.... As I was cruising down the road my wheel starts to steer right. I thought it was my weight shifting it so I didn't think anything of it. But as I slow down the bike turns more to the right. This has never happen to me on my bike before the new tires and I wonder if there is a problem with the wheel. The only difference is the new front wheel is disc brake ready and I am still using my V-brakes (no disc brakes currently). Also, I am underinflated...

    All i know is the bike should keep a somewhat straight line when I cruise without holding the bars.. Anyone have any ideas?

    Simple keep your hands on the bars and make sure the QR is properly tightened.

    the feather on your pimp hat must be on the right side and causing aero drag.
