Bicycle Lean
#1
I've been riding for a few years now, and have multiple times run into the same problem. I'm riding a bike, I take my hands off, and it leans to the side.

I have one such now, and I have tried a few things. Included among these things i have tried are checking to see if the fork blades are parallel (as far as I can tell they are) as well as checking for a pitted headset.
I asked a few people who know more than me and I was told it could be the things i already checked for, so I am stumped.

It's an aluminum racing bike from the 70's.

If you have had this problem with several bikes, it's probably you, try moving your weight to the opposite side slightly.

One of the key things is the seat too, but mainly as said above you are the balance point for that type of trick riding.
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!
