How do I tighten my rear wheel?
Switch to the drive side of the wheel and pull the wheel back to increase the tension on the chain. You can move forward or backward to tension or give it a little slack. The amount is entirely up to you. If you like a bike that doesn’t make any noise, you will want it nice and tight.
Why is my back wheel wobbling on my bike?
Radial wobbling is when the bicycle rim loses its perfectly round shape, and you can usually feel a little bump when riding. This has more to do with the overall tension on the bike and is easier to fix once you’ve got side-to-side areas ironed out.
Why is my bicycle tire wobbling?
Bicycle wheels support your weight by placing a high amount of tension on the spokes that connect the rim to the wheel hub. Riding your bike regularly, over rough terrain or having an accident can cause the spokes to become tensioned unevenly, thus making the wheel wobble while riding.
Do all pegs fit all bikes?
Bike pegs generally have one use, and that is for tricks and stunts on properly equipped bikes. That does not mean that pegs cannot fit on all bikes, but it generally means that people do not put them on any other type of bike. Always be careful if a person is going to be using the pegs as a way to help them stand.
Why is my cassette wobbly?
Sometimes dirt gets in between the cogs and spacers if you ride with loose cogs long enough. This can make it impossible to get the cogs tight until you clean the dirt off the cogs. Once that’s done, tightening the lockring will lock the cogs down tight.
Is it normal for a cassette wobble?
A slight wobble is not uncommon. Certainly not all cassettes wobble but some do and are still within specs. It’s impossible to build the quantity of cassettes that Shimano and SRAM do without some variance in tolerances.
How do you center the back wheel?
The wheel should be centered between the fork blades. To adjust wheel centering, open the quick release, move the wheel either left or right until the wheel appears centered, then close the quick release. For non-quick release wheels, loosen the axle nuts and center the wheel, then tighten the nuts fully.
