Hi guy's .
Newbie tourer alert be warned dumb questions may follow.
I have the Cannondale touring ultra 07 did my first tour this year (ok slow starter i know)
Fatty lockout 80 mm fork,mavic 117 rims
this link has a discription of the bike http://www.bikeradar.com/gear/catego...rs_description
Load 10lb each rear pannier 7lb each front ...tent and mat on the rear rack 5 lb in the bar bag.
When starting off the front shimmy's back and forth alarmingly, this soon clears and does not return,indeed the bike handles really well loaded and the off road loaded performance seams great ...my thoughts
1. its me, just week
2. its the frame
3. its the fork.
4. its all of the above
Any thoughts from the more experience would be appreciated.
