You may have buckled your wheel if its a spoked type ! If you have buy a spoke key and tighten the spokes opposite the buckle if the buckle goes over to the left stop wheel and tighten spoke that lie on the right of the rim fairly easy if your rim is not to badly damaged..... you will have to keep on tinkering to true the wheel also check your spoke are tight before starting as i have seen spokes just loosen for no reason.......hope this helps.

Tighten the two pinion gear bolts that are holding the rear wheel, if the wheel is wobbling, then that is the problem.

If this does not fix the problem, you will probably better buy a new wheel, or replace the whole pinion gear and axis assembly, better to replace the wheel.

Sounds to me like the bearing cone nuts are loose. Your local bike shop should be able to sell you a cone spanner, which is a very thin spanner that help you to adjust the 'cones' which are held within the frame on the axle.
I could fix it for you for free if you come to Alice less car!

Rear wheel wobbles

It sounds like your spokes are loose. Unless you have experience in tightening spokes you need to take the bike or wheel to a dealer. It is very easy to get the wheel wrapped if you have never done this before.

I need to change the rear gear sprocket, but don't know what speed the mountain bike is. How can I tell what speed the bike is.

Count the cogs, duh. You're going to need some help even after you know if it's 6-, 7-, 8, 9- or 10-speed in the rear. Special tools and 'how-to' knowledge. Take it to a Bicycle Shop an experienced DIY cycling friend.

My daughter has a Schwinn Sidewinder 26" mountain bike. The chain keeps jumping from the rear sprockets to a smaller sprocket under power. I have noticed that the rear sprocket set "wobbles"...

It's loose on the hub. Special tools are required to tighten them. Bike Shops have them and will possibly perform the repair for less than the cost of the tools.

Then check the shifting...

Word to the wise: don't buy bicycles from anywhere but a professional bicycle shop. Box stores don't usually have the skills for proper assembly, setup or follow-up.

I bought a Huffy sea star 20 inch bicycle last year, the rear wheel keeps puncturing the inner tube, a spoke has come loose and the wheel wobbles. can't find a replacement wheel. Help!!!!!

Don't replace the wheel, get it fixed. The spoke can be tightened and the rim tensioned and trued. The rim strip probably needs to be looked at for exposing the spoke ends to the tube.

Hi guys, just bought a Werx VL 120 frame and the rear spacing is 145mm instead of the usual 135mm. The frame came from ebay and may have been sitting around for a few years. Do you think i could narrow...

Unfortunately there is no way to narrow the rear spacing on that particular bicycle. 145mm was the intended spacing to use a beefier wheel. If you try to bend the rear triangle yourself you risk several problems:
  • not bending either side the same amount leading to a wheel that is not straight inline with the rest of the bicycle
  • binding the suspension pivots
  • introducing fractures in the rear triangle welds (aluminum is not meant to be bent too much)
  • breaking the rear triangle
Your best bet is to find a wheel that fits. Many tandems use 145mm spacing for the rear wheel, or you could find downhill-specific wheels and/or hubs to build up or use.

Where can i buy a rear wheel for this bicycle

Bike shop, eBay, Performance Bicycle catalog? Look for a 26-inch MTB wheel with a Shimano 7-speed cassette body on it. If that makes no sense, take it to a bike shop and get it right the first time. They'll also have the special tools to transfer your gears to the new wheel.

Wanna see what's involved?

Front wheel wobbles

More than likely the wheel is out of true. There are 2 choices,

1 Buy a spoke wrench and attemp to true the wheel. You can do this by spinning the wheel to locate the spot where the wheel goes furthest to one side then tighten the spoke coming from the opposite side. Do this slowly 1/2 turn at a time. Do not over tighten the spoke. It may be necessary to loosen the other side slightly.

Alternate spokes between both sides of wobble.

2 Take bike to a good local bike shop to be tuned and have the wheels trued. Most shops offer a tune up at low cost. A well tuned bike will last a long time.
