Quick Release..

I've only ever had a speed wobble on the bike once - descending off Saddleworth Moor on a new compact bike and with a fierce side wind - I couldn't keep the bike in the right lane even - very scary.

No, this isn't speed wobble. I know what that is. I can just feel the tyre snaking around on the road. It's unnerving. Do you hear of any catastrophic equipment failures?

Well occasionally - but its quite rare. I do think 120 PSI in a 28mm tyre is massively overdoing it. I have 25mm on and with about 80-90 PSI in the rear.

Could it be that you're overinflating it and its slightly out of round ?

Possibly. I'm going to check all of the above and let some air out of my tyres. I'll let you know if it makes a difference.
