GMC Denali road bike starts wailing

My GMC Denali road bike has developed a wailing sound when I cycle. I've identified the problem as the rear wheel bearings based on descriptions read here. How much will it cost to replace them, and can faulty bearings damage the axle or other parts?

Bearings in themselves arent that expensive [at all] and you could probably spend $5 for a set of new ones, but if the bike has been wailing for a while, you might want to make sure the friction between the bad bearings and the inside walls of the hub and Cone, hasnt ruined the whole build. because if they have then buying an new hub [$20 - 50 depending on the quality] would be a better option. And if you know how to untie everything you could just run your fingers through to check for any uneveness or bumps, otherwise asking a bike repair guy to help could be a just as good option

If the wheel has nuts (not bolts) on each side you just need to loosen each one enough to remove the wheel.

How to remove front forks

Repainting via rattle-can is a bad idea - looks poor and will not hold up. As for forks, just google "overhaul threadless headset."

When installing the front wheel, the wheel is touching the frame. it is straight out of the box...suggestions?

It sounds like either a bent fork or a damaged wheel. To check the fork, rest the bike on a flat floor with no front wheel in, the handlebars should be in the normal position for going straight (right angles to frame), if the bike sits level, then the fork is ok.

To check the wheel, hold the hub and spin it a bit, you should see a big whobble if it is that damaged.

If it is just the wheel, you can take that back to the shop, otherwise you will have to bring the bike back, sadly.

Hope that helps.

Denali GMC 700C Women's road bike wrong tires!!!

Can you explain why you think the tires are too big? Do they NOT fit the rims? What condition was this bike in when you bought it? If the brake pads line up with the rims then the wheels are correctly sized for the frame.
