Recently I've noticed that my front wheel seems to be wobbling, for lack of a better word, ever so slightly. The reason I noticed it is because I could hear one of the brake pads just barely rubbing against the rim every time the wheel would roll to a certain point. It's not that I can't ride, obviously, but it is getting irritating, and I don't want the brake pad to wear down prematurely.
At first I thought I'd placed it in the arms crooked, so I unscrewed it, took it out and put it back in. No good. I've turned the bike over and spun the wheel to see if I could figure out where the trouble is, and I've found the spot, but the wheel doesn't appear bent or anything.
Could someone recommend something else to check for before taking it in? I don't mind taking it, but I'd like to start being able to do minor repairs/maintenance myself if possible. Thanks in advance.
