Hi guys,



a bit of a weird problem here, hoping someone will be able to diagnosis this:



my beloved Teedub has a kind of bouncy feel when I roll forward slowly, almost as of I'm pushing it over a bunch of stones. its not because of the knobbly tires, cause it hasn't done this before, and the bouncy feel is way to intense. I'm thinking it might have something to do with the bearings, but then I could be wrong. at high speeds, it's much smoother, but not as smooth as it used to be. it seems to be gradually getting worse.I haven't hit any potholes or anything like that. does anyone have a clue as to what it might be? The best way I can describe it is lining up a small grid of horizontal lines, then pushing the bike over it.



thanks,

Rudi

Bearings? Or breaks? You must tear into this before you ride it any further, seriously, you could be putting your life in danger if it's either one. m.

You need to get that bike off the ground and see which end has a problem. Could be anything from a trashed or overtightened chain to brakes or bearings. Mike is right. Any of those could land you nose first.

I remember some talk of vibration that resulted from the flaring of the knobs on the front tire as a result of 'hard' braking. I know the thought was, this feeling was something other than (routine) knobby roughness. Since this is a little outside of routine, I thought I would mention it. Good luck. Gerry

Have you tightened your chain lately???????? And yes if the front tire has more than 4,000 miles they can vibrate... Keep us informed. OMM.
