    New Crosslake bike-rattling and wheel loose?

    I've had my Crosslake (ebay) bike for a couple days, and since day 1 there has been a rattling sound coming from the rear when I ride over bumps or rough surfaces. Also, I can move the rear wheel from side to side a bit. Is this normal? I've tightened the wheel down as hard as I can. Help would be appreciated.
