Front End

Thanks for the tips. Yes, I will check the tubes for straightness  
when I have the whole thing apart. When I'm aligning the front end, I  
usually loosen the upper clamps and keep the lowers tight, since the  
lowers are the ones that do the most clamping/aligning (am I right  
about that?), loosen the fender bolts and the axle clamping bolts.  
Then I pump the front end and tighten everything up again. I suppose  
the metal brace inside the fender could be bent as well--I've had  
trouble with those on other bikes in the past.
