Hmmmm. Maybe it's the heat here. We've been around 100 for the last several days. But that said i aligned the wheel today and maybe just loosening things up helped, but it then seemed to stay close to the same after a ride. Not as much difference. At least i think not. I will have to keep and eye on it. But maybe something was funky and out of whack after i put the new tire on and reinstalled the wheel. Freakin' belts are definately tricky beasts. After 17k miles i'm still trying to figure things out.
