    ever since i got my engine kit my back wheel has begun to wobble. a mate told me it is problem the bearings and that i should get them tightened or replaced. i went to the bike shop to get them replaced and they told me that the problem is inside the hub and that if i was to buy another wheel it will happen again... what should i do... what do u guys do... is it just a once off problem or what.. i need to present my bike for my school project pretty soon so im not sure...
    any comments are appreciated.

    IF the problem is inside the hub(not the bearings though) see Tony in the bike stall at the Port Market on Sundays & get him(or do it yourself) to make-up one of his sealed-bearing heavy duty wheels(with 13G S/S spokes)
    If it's just your bearings take a sample into him & get replacements,OR take your whole wheel in there & let him diagnose & repair the problem.
    Bike shops are a ripp-of & they don't like us anyway.
