So I finally got my rob roy out for a proper trail ride and the thing is skittery around corners, especially coming downhill. Basically the rear wheel wants to fishtail and the front want to wash out- especially in loose stuff, of course.
I don't know what to make of it. Because of my gearing and how the brakes are useless if you're past the halfway point in the track ends, it's got a short wheelbase- I have it basically at the very front of the track ends. Could it be the short wheelbase?
Or is it just the geometry? Do I need to just get used to it somehow? If so, how do you handle a bike that wants to do that? I set my seat back a little more to take some weight off the bars and it seemed to help a little, but... what up?
this is the bike, got a different saddle but this is how I've got it set up:
