yesterday I noticed that the front tire on my bike is wobbling. What causes this? how can it be fixed? for now, the only thing I've done is release the front brake a little bit to avoid contact between the rim and the brake pads as the wheel turns.

please help!

:confused:

oohhh

yeah, I had heard those words before. haha, I was under the impression that it had something to do with the "central core" of the wheel but it actually has more to do with the spokes. In any case I do not want to mess around with this myself.

anybody with a physics degree want to elaborate?

I'm kind of bored...

It is not that complicated. The search function and Google are your friend, especially when you are bored.

"central core" is a concept I've yet to run into with bicycles....truing wheels might be scary at first but rocket science it ain't...
