    Rear wheel wobbling

    I just noticed today that my rear wheel wobbles a little bit, like is isnt aligned properly. When i run the wheel when im not on it, i can that is not moving straight, you can visibly see that it wobbles a little bit. is it okay or is it someting i have to worry about?

    May also be your rear hub, my old FS had a worn rear hub to the point where it wouldnt even click when freewheeling, and the rear wheel would move about 2-3cms either side if you shook it with your hand.

    Id say take it to your LBS asap, i was told to ride as little as possible on my bike when that happened.
