Possible distortion in frame?
Recently bought an aluminum track bike and noticed one side of the back wheel had more clearance than the other. Took it to a shop and he tried messin with it but nothing really worked to get it dead center. Has anyone experienced this issue before or might know of a solution? image.jpg
Uhhh, the chain is on one side of the rear wheel. If you yank it back real far it can end up like that. You gotta make sure the wheel is straight when you are tightening the wheel down. But I'm assuming there is something else wrong if the lbs couldn't figure it out...
I am not Google.
If your axle is centered in your dropouts and the spacing is correct on your hub, there's also a chance your wheel needs to be slightly re-dished and centered. It's really not a big deal to fix.
The fact that the shop you brought it to didn't think of that means you should probably go to a different shop.
