This may be totally wrong but, make sure your front axle spacers are installed correctly and not bound at an angle.

well guys thanks for the suggestions but it turns out my friends thought it would be funny to adjust my suspension for me so when the new rubber went on it would ride funny

I wouldn't think that was funny at all, I don't like anyone playing with my bike

:eek:

Maybe it's time to reconsider who you ride with. This little joke of theirs could've easily cost you your life, and if that's not a reason to drop them like a bad habit, I don't know what is. Maybe next time it'll be "Hey, watch this, I'm gonna loosen his oil drain plug, tee hee hee."

Depending on the amount of miles you put on the bike with the "funny" setup, you might want your "friends" to get you a new front tire. I'm sure they'll think that's "funny" too.
