    Hey everyone,

    Now I'm not sure if this was because of the wheel being 4 years old and heavily used or what, but my wheel bearing literally came out of place causing a wobble. And sseemingly rendering the wheel dangerous.

    Did anyone have a problem with their wheel bearing? I have yet to start the engine for the first time. This problem occured while pedaling.

    Setting the bearings on a bike wheel is fairly easy. You may need two cone wrenches that are the correct size.

    probably just needed adjusting before the sprocket was put on - I wouldn't worry about it unless it happens again

    that happens a lot to cheap wheels. I've never had it happen on a shimano hub
