I have the option to use steering because I have a Kicked Bike. However, I virtually always disable it as it seems to be more of a disadvantage but definitely an annoyance in larger groups. When most don’t have steering it seems (or seemed if changes have been made) to be pushed more outside. When most do… it is a disadvantage not to have it.
Giving that: Is there a way to see before the race starts how many in the starting pens have steering enabled? Now I’d have to quit and close a gap which is not great.
