Greetings from New Jersey

I ride a Wilier 09 and have a Specialized Roubaix both with Campy Chorus drive train components. I do all my own mechanical and maintenance work and have built up both bikes from frame sets. Logged 5,000 mi per my Garmin last year and like the hills around Monmouth County.

I love my Wilier Zero 9, but find that it doesn't track straight when my hands are off the bars. I ride my Specialized and like to raise my arms from time to time to stretch. The Wilier won't allow me to do this. Is this a characteristic of some bike models?

Welcome. The folks in the Road Cycling forum can probably answer this for you.
