    Hey guys!

    Just got my bike back and having a few issues (as discussed in this thread: http://www.motoredbikes.com/showthread.php?t=29759)

    One thing I noticed while putting on a nice new rear tire was that the wheel is pretty dang wobbly. Like, not buckled and not so bad that it hits the breaks or the frame, but its got a distinct wobble.

    How can I fix this? :)

    Cheers!
    Mike.

    1. Take off the wheel.

    2. You will see bolts on both sides of the axle, on both ends of the hub, tighten those up with a wrench (not sure what size they are). I am not talking about the bolts that are holding the tire on. The bolts I am refering to are behind those.

    3. Put back on the tire.

    By doing this you have tightened up the hub making it so the tire is tight and not wobbling around.

    Good luck!
