Sounds great!

My daughter belongs to a cycling club. It is one of those that goes for massive long rides at the weekend and they all try to beat their best times. She just tags along and does her own thing. They stop half way for a coffee break and if she has had enough she returns to base.

According to the laws of physics, of which I don't know a lot, if the path is sloping left to right the bike will 'turn downhill'. (Correction willingly accepted!)



Unless of course it is not equally balanced. How about a visit to a bikeshop for a health check? It may need the bike equivalent of a wheel alignment/balance check.

Personal Aire
I converted my bicycle to electric which is great as it helps me pedaling, I can go a lot further but the battery pack hangs from the handlebars and I find it very hard to steer in a straight line.
When I turn the weight of the pack causes me to oversteer and wobble, is there a way to stiffen up the steering?

mmmm -stiff steering on a bicycle doesn't sound like a good solution, better to move the battery pack I would think.

Is it not possible to put on a bike rack to carry the battery at the back

A bit more wiring maybe
