Re: [rootsradicals] Re: Tightening headsets for going no-hands
- I am not sure that there is any particular formula for riding no-
hands. The tongue of my FreeRadical is on top of the kickstand
plate, but it is a plate, so that is not very high.
And I ride it no-hands, with loads, not perfectly valid loads, 50 lb
loads, once for a few seconds with my daughter on the back, on snow-
covered pavement, and offroad.
HOWEVER -- I cannot figure out how to ride my very old Raleigh 3-
Over the years, I've ridden quite a few bikes no-hands, and one thing
that I learned is that a bike can be too twitchy, or not twitchy
enough. So, if the reason you can't do it is that the bike is not
twitchy enough, then lowering the BB is not necessarily going to
help. So, fiddling may be required. The old Raleigh, I think, is
not twitchy enough; it starts to veer to one side or the other, and I
cannot get it to correct.

Congrats on your Big Dummy. The video looks good too.
Look what I found this morning:
It links thru my blog (so it's a self-serving shameless plug as well as a .contribution to the discussion) but it's pretty darn cool stuff .
