She rides like a pig

Last week found a nail in the rear tyre so pulled it out and Psssssssssssssssssss Loaded her in the van and took her to Yeovil, told that tyre could not be repaired so new tyre. Road the bike over the weekend 100 miles and not at all happy with the handling / feel of the back end, in corners it felt very loose / handled like a Thought it was just the new tyre needing the edges taking off so last night another blast but it felt even worse. When putting her away in the garage found a weight on the floor, low and behold all the balancing weight has dropped off. Today took her back to Yeovil and it turns out that they have had a bad batch of weights that don't stick very well. Re balanced, new weights and what a difference, sure footed again. Hard to believe what 30 grams can do.
