hey,

i just got the carrera vengeance from halfords and have been out on it for about 3 hours now and the steering feels kinda loose. like if i hold the bike on end the handlebars move from one side to the other without any resistance. im starting to get use to it now but it just feels like there should be alittle more resistance when turning the bike. anyone had any experience with this bike? and should a mountain bike have little resistance in turning?

thanks

    the headsaet may have bedded in and needs a tweek.

    back to Halfords or read the how tos on parktools.

    Read Parktools in Nick's sig. 5 minute job.
    But check if there is any forwards and backwards movement in the headset first. Might just be moving easy, which is fine.
