Question about Marin Quake 7.8
A few possible guesses.
1) the hub is loose and needs to be adjusted
2) the Freehub is loose and needs to be adjusted
3) the wheel is not securely in the frame
4) all these things
5) something inside the hub or hub assembly is broken
Solution: for all these take the bike into your local shop and have them take a look.
There is one other possibility, your spokes are not at full tension and the spokes are clicking against each other when you put enough lateral force on them. Again you want the shop to retension the wheel.
Depending on the wheels you have you will either need special tools to fix, parts, or special knowledge or all these. So better to pass on to a shop that has some experience working with this type of bicycle and get it done right once.
