Front Wheel/fork issues
#1
I just bought a old Peugeot from the 70s. I took it into a local bike shop and had it tuned up and also brought up that the front wheel seems to wander to the left and then back to the right at higher speeds. Almost like there was a slight bend in the rim, or maybe it the spokes needed to be tightened. They tuned it up and it was fine until the first little bump i hit and now it wanders back and forth again. I have even replaced the wheel this week and it still does the same thing!

He mentioned that my fork was bent a little when i brought it in. could that be the issue?

Also, could it be my tire? it has road tread and my other bike is basically a bald tire and that bike rides just fine.

Thanks All!

If the fork is bent then I would try and find a replacement.
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!
