Does the luggage on a touring bike ever pull you to one side?
I know you would try and balance the weight either side...but i can't help wondering what they are like to ride when all packed up with luggage.
Agree with BTFB, it is probably more steady when fully loaded. I just find it can just wobble a bit when you jump out of the saddle to keep momentum going uphill. (Something I only usually do on day one until I remember where I am!)
Also both the bottom fixings on my rack snapped on tour this year, so it was held place by gravity and zip ties, which didn't help the stability at all!
