Hi Everyone,

Just have a question regarding steering dampers for my Giant Sedona CX. I recently got a double leg kick stand because the single stand would just tip over everytime I had weight in the rear basket ie. the groceries.
Now I face the problem of the handlebar smacking me in the face or hip because it's in the air. So I looked at steering dampers from Hebie... but I think they only work with rigid steel forks and not my Suntour NEX fork. :(
There's also hopey, but $200 for a damper... WTF.
Would anyone be able to suggest some quick fix (or cheap damper) that will solve my problem? Can you add resistance to the steering stem??

Thanks.

You could just crank the headset down real tight and it would solve your problem. Or take the headset apart and put a handful of sand in. Boiling salt water would probably work but might take longer. Button it back up and should stiffen the handle bar up no problem.

These still can be found from time to time. Called the flick stand . It's exactly what you are looking for .

Carry a ball bungee cord and use it to tie the rim to the down tube when you park the bike.
