I've never been the most confident rider out there, but have generally been able to stay upright and avoid crashes. I started riding again last year after a 10 year lay off and descovered I could no longer descend! As I live in the mountains this is something of a problem. The bike seems ok, no obvious wheel or headset problems. As I pick up speed the front wheel starts to violently shake. I think I'm so nervous that I get a death grip on the bars that starts the problem and then makes it worse.
Today I had the same problem during a high speed sprint on level ground. Is it me, the bike or both? I would like to get back to enjoying my rides instead of worring about crashing. Thanks, peon 402.
