How do you get that new bike feel?
You know how after a few years of bike ownership, especially road bikes, you tend to get a little bagginess in the chassis.
Nothing dangerous, but a subtle or sometimes more pronounced looseness.
I would like to know the best way to get the bike feeling like new.
The looseness is typically felt in the front of the bike as road use gives it a lot of abuse.
I was thinking to change out the steering bearings, but whenever doing this on other bikes, and even after tightening the steering again to get rid of the initial slop you get after fitting new bearings, it still never feels as new.
I normally use All Ballz tapered bearings, and wondered if non tapered are the way to go for tighter fit.
