    Hi... bikers

    Can you adj the bearings with the sprocket on ? have never had to adj any.

    Now with the kit half done the wheels wobble, wish I had checked.

    Does the sprok come off and go back on ok? or a one off?

    **** this kit has been a pain, Chinese revenge.

    Thanks to all

    Your probably going to have to take the wheel off and readjust the axle nuts... Probably not the answer your looking for, but that's what i would do. It should not take you that long to do :)
    Good luck
  4. HI,

    If you have the proper sized cone wrenches, you can simply loosen the axle nuts and adjust the cones to your liking (NOTE: some cones have lock nuts / jamb nuts that will have to be loosened before you can adjust the cones).

    Since you mentioned wheel wobble in your post it could be that the wheel needs to be trued....that requires the use of a spoke wrench of the appropriate size.

    Hope this helps.
