Good Morning

Yesterday I bought a brand new Specialized Hardrock Comp 07 and I like the way she handles but it has just a small catch. After some hours of road riding to test the bike and doing a concrete drop (for now nothing more than 2 foot), I noticed that the rim appears to be out of true but when I spin the wheel it looks like the tire is wobbling on the rim. The bike is stock and the tires are Specialized Resolution Sport 2.1. Anyone could give me a good explanation for this???:)

Brand new wheels are prone to going out of true after the first few rides. Concrete/flat drops will exaggerate this! When you have them retrued they should hold their shape better for longer :)

But I don't think that the rims have gone out of true just riding her normally from the morning to the afternoon.

The Hardrock doesn't come with bullet proof wheels, I would take it easy on it for a week or so then take it back to the shop where you bought it and have them do a "check up" on it. By then the cables will probably stretch a little as well. After it is broken in and adjusted, is should be a solid bike for you.:thumbsup:

Could be the rim, or just the tire not seated properly. Either way the shop should be able to take care of it for you.

Thanks for all your help. I think that now I will ride with her until all parts are broken in and then I'l go to the shop and do a check-up.

Today I watched better the rims when I was riding and noticed that IS the tire bouncing on the rim. Perhaps it's not well seated. The guy at my LBS told me that those tires do that. I don't know if it's true.
