Alignment and handling
Yesterday I noticed that when I'm heading in a straight line my handlebars are just ever so slightly off-center and that, you know, bugs me.
Since I basically know zero about the steering system, I was wondering what you guys think.
I believe this may imply that I need to look at tire alignment, so I've looked at the "string" method for aligning rear and front tire, and that seems simple enough. However, I am curious if there is somewhere I should be starting "before" that — i.e., making sure the handlebars are lined up with the front tire, etc.
You'll probably remember that I talked in a "tires" thread about handling issues, and I received some good advice for checking out the movement of the handlebars (i.e., making sure they can sit still at center, and testing the resistance when moving them back and forth). I haven't done any of that yet, but I will check that out before getting into aligning stuff.
