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.2dogs said:Good question.MaximX said:Stupid human question: What exactly does wallowing feel like? What is happening with the bike when it "wallows"?
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.
