    GT Karakoram 3.0 troubles?

    Hello guys, pretty much new here, but I;ve been lurking around for a bit..

    I bought today 2012 GT Karakoram 3.0, my first 29er bike

    Bike is great, but I have 2 questions,

    1. pedals make a "metal" sound, right pedal that is, on every turn, and it makes that sound in same position every time ( bottom position ), what could it be ?

    2. I rode it a bit today, and it feels like front tyre throws me to the side every time it turns, best way to describe that feeling is like when you drive a car in the snow, it goes like on rails and suddenly shifts you to the side when you hit a clear lane ( my english is not best sorry).... could it be because the tyres are new or ? tyre is not wobbly at all...


    Thank you for any help you can provide me !!!

    replace black plastic/nylon pedals with alloy or clipless if your bike came with them.
    plastic is not very strong. Magnesium is good too.
    ...Enjoy!
