Intermittent front wheel wobble. Reasons?
So went out on a group ride today, 120 miles, and noticed front wheel giving me wobble a bit... sometimes. Nothing major, but I could feel it.
Tried very hard to spot the commonality. Was it only in one direction? One speed? Under power? Under deceleration? Couldn't spot a consistency.... But was hard to try riding in formation. The few miles home alone were not revelatory.
So I'm thinking maybe lost a wheel weight or it's just got out of balance. Probably that would "resonates" more at certain speeds but I just haven't been able to spot it.
Not unstable or scary, really. But not right. Want to address it -before- it gets unstable or scary. I'm probably just taking it in to have the front wheel balanced regardless.
But any other potential cause/issue anyone can spot... would be appreciated for consideration. Esp. if it turns out the wheel is balanced just fine.
