RS30 wheel wobble

Postby MattyyP » Tue Apr 02, 2013 16:18 pm

My Shimano RS30 rear wheel has developed a wobble from side to side, it's definitely the bearings, however I do not have a clue what to do? Do I just need to tighten the hub? Or does the entire hub require a regrease? Any help would be much welcome! :lol:

How old is the wheel? It could just be the grease distributing itself, in which case the hub just needs a bit of tightening.

I have no idea what's going on here.

Probably just needs a regrease. Shimano hubs are so easy to open, clean and regrease. Just make sure that you leave about 1mm gap in the cone when tightening them back up.

The wheel has done about 1500 miles lol! I've stripped it and regreased it, it wasn't dry but it has sorted the wobble out :) Thanks for the input guys!
