I took advantage of the public holiday in Canberra to go for a wet weather ride around the nationâ€™s capital. The roads are notoriously slippery in Canberra after some rain but Iâ€™m not sure if that would offer a reason for my rear wheel to kick out to the right under breaks upon downshifting a gear. It didnâ€™t feel like I was going to totally lose control as I had slowed down to 30/40 km/hr but the slip of the rear was discernable and it happened more than once. I havenâ€™t noticed this tendency in the dry, I wasnâ€™t using any rear brake at the time and tyre pressure is good - it definitely appeared related to the downshift. Anyone have any ideas as to why this may have happened?
