Any issues with front-end wobbling during higher speeds? One complaint about my Univega.

Looks great.

Never had any wobbling.. I think when this happens this has something to do with the position on the bike. I think this is the most stable bike I own. I have to say I never did a long descent on this bike though (I live in the Netherlands which has NO mountains).
It's not as stiff overall as modern bikes though, but I don't mind, I'm not that strong anyway ;).

If you can fit wider tires that may help even the jump from 23 to 25c tires on my steel road bike made a huge difference in handling and ride quality.

@FABEL Somehow I like the beater look. People with no advance knowledge of bike components think this bike is a peace of trash, which is good when you live in a country where a lot of bikes get stolen.

Zie nu de link onderaan pas, zeker goed genoeg! Zo'n fiets als deze staat voor mij ook nog op de planning (ooit) om in de winter op te trainen.
