There is a wobble in the rear cassette, do i have to replace the hub? what do i do, any help would be awesome.
I just had the same problem. Turns out my hub locknut was loose. Tightened it back up and all was good.
Other people will tell you to also check that you have a spacer (assuming you have Shimano 10spd cassette) behind the cassette and also to check the cassette lockring is good and tight.

my mistake, it looks like a freewheel.
Let's hope the wobble's not caused by crossthreading.

oh i hope not. the movement is very slight, maybe a millimeter or so. it doesn't seem to translate into affecting the smoothness of the ride. any ideas on what it could be?
