Welcome from Hollister, CA.

Someone more knowledgeable will be around to help but it sounds like you might need to look at your tires, wear or pressure, or possibly suspension.

Welcome to the forum from Houston.

Your problem could be related to a number of issues. I'm certainly not the guru when it comes to bikes, but I can tell you that your problem could be anything from neck bearings, to wheel alignment, etc. Post the issue in the proper spot on the forum and you'll likely get many more answers.

Good luck, amigo!
