Stupid human question: What exactly does wallowing feel like? What is happening with the bike when it "wallows"?
Good question.
Here's my stab at an answer. When we say a bike wallows in curves and corners we are describing a sensation that feels like the back end is hinged. It feels like its fish-tailing a bit but the movement is in the frame and shock components, not the tire breaking traction.
I've finally learned what exactly this feels like, and it's freaky. Can't wait to upgrade the rear. < EDIT > Upgraded rear and the rear end swing went away - went with the Pregen 250 shock and spring setup. Preload was good for my 160# Ungeared weight.
