      I use a Trek 4500. It too is "noodley". I think that is the nature of the beast.

I'm not expecting to get Yuba type stability with heavier loads and accept there's a trade off to be made between unloaded and loaded feel but I wonder how much difference the base bike makes. For example would using something like a Thorn Sherpa or 26" wheeled LHT as a base bike be likely to be any better once the load weight is increased?
