I would like a bit of resistance on turning the handlebars, no much but enough so that the front wheel stays pointing forward when the bike is on a kick stand. Here is a picture of the type of front fork connection. What can I adjust?
I think he wants the wheel straight when he has it supported on its kick stand not a workstand? Why specifically this is an issue I'm not sureThe steering should move freely. My work stand came with an extending stick fitted with rubber straps so that you can secure the bars in position. You would be better looking at something like that, or just tying the bars in position with some string.
Ah, the bike may be flipping if put on its stand while loaded. Loaded bikes should not be put on single prop stands because they're not designed to have that much weight sideways through the attachment point. Even on a centre stand, it's oft debated.I think he wants the wheel straight when he has it supported on its kick stand not a workstand? Why specifically this is an issue I'm not sure
I agree. A dangerous thing to do.An over-tight steerer bearing will make the bike dive from one side of the road to the other in a very disconcerting manner as the steering won't be following the tiny changes in direction that you make unconsciously to keep the wheels immediately under your centre of gravity.
I get walking stick ferrules from eBay for my kickstand. Last much longer than the originals.Thank you all for most helpful comments. I have just bought a steering damper, as a solution.
My kickstand rubbers are wearing. Has anyone a source for angled rubbers that can take the weight of a bike?
