    cassette wobble

    i saw some previous threads on this. here's something different....I removed my cassette and took apart my hub to clean them. i didn't notice a wobble before i did this...now there's a wobble. other than having bike mechanic do this next time, any ideas what is causing this? all the spacers are in place, etc.

    Either some bit of dirt in the wrong place or insufficient torquing of the lock
    ring on install. Take it apart and eyeball all, then reinstall and torque it some
    more.

    i'm going to have to buy a lock ring wrench. my all my wrenches are too wide. i took it apart and looked at everything. it appears fine. i think i have a bent spindle (or is it axle). the wobble was probably there before and i just hadn't noticed it (which is odd because i'm pretty anal about the sounds/vibrations my bike emits).



    i don't have a torque wrench. i go by feel. i know i know.....a torque wrench is on my wish list.

    I remember seeing an intentional wobble in the cassette many years ago. The idea was that it helped the RD pick up the chain. I guess that concept died along time ago.
