no-handed with no problems. On my Xtra, if I take my hands off the bar,
it is totally unstable. It's just an unlucky change to the geometry

so it might be a problem with the original geometry, but I doubt it.
Anyway, I have today off, so I'm about to put the youngest daughter on
the bike and go visit Pike Place Market. I <3 my Xtracycle.
