Handlebar Oscillation

Under rare, specific conditions, the handlebar on a bike can start to exhibit something called "speed wobble", where the handlebars will vibrate. First off, make sure your EdgeRunner has a handlebar stabilizing spring. This will greatly reduce steering issues and add resistance that will make steering easier. If you are still experiencing wobble, it can be easily remedied with a Cane Creek Viscoset: https://www.canecreek.com/products/headsets/viscoset

The ViscoSet offers viscous damping that inhibits these vibrations. The Xtracycle team has tried this on an EdgeRunner and it resolved the issue for us.
