Default Re: wheels.......what to do now?

stick on wheel weights.. you'll never get it perfect, but the wheels should spin around and never fall with the valve stem on the bottom.. of course improper bearing preload or bearing damage/ improper lubrication will do that too..

just tighten the bearings till they don't rock, then back them off a tiny bit.... My Cranbrooks bearings whined and the coaster brake was mediocor at best.. I pulled it apart, greased it and then adjusted it and the brake got more responsive and whining stopped, this is a brand new bike ( week old now )
