Another Test Ride - Steady As She Goes

Decided I needed at least one more fully loaded ride before I leave for Vermont on Wednesday. I did the Kings/Old State/West Lydius loop, for 16+ miles, and this time the bike felt rock-solid. A few days ago, I tightened up the headset and rear brakes, and maybe that's what did the trick. Whatever I did, the bike feels much better now, and I can just ride, without fighting the bike every step of the way. A butt break (standing on the pedals), a drink while riding, and riding on the top center of the bars are still a little dicey, but those are all easily avoidable.
