    No, not generally - but for clarity do you mean weave from side to side or the frame itself flexing under each pedal stroke? Mucho bollox talked about frame flex - wheels and tyre deflection is far more prevalent. How heavy are you and what frame / wheels are you riding?
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
