Hi guys! I just bought a Fuji Classic Track Fixed Gear Bike. Recently I've been pedal pacing after going real fast or down really steep hills and noticed that my rear wheel was loose. I got it tightened up today and was told by the bike repair man that pedal pacing tends to loose up the rear hub and cause the wheel to give a little play and wobble. Aside from his professional opinion, do you think that pace pedaling can cause this and if so why does the wheel become loose?
Also I've practicing skid stopping and loosened my lock ring on my rear wheel and had to get it fixed, is there anyway to prevent this from happening while skid stopping?
Id love to hear your advice and input, thanks for your time!
