I don't know how a wheel sounds when it wants to bend.I replaced the tyres on my bike, and it sounds as if either the front or rear wheel wants to bend. It was fine before changing the tyres. Could it just be the tyres being worked in? (They are schwalbe durano plus)
Spokes need tightening maybe?
Got the bike out yesterday, and the front and rear spokes had all loosened to the point the wheel was not true. Adjusted the spokes after watching a how to video and both wheels are now trueI don't know how a wheel sounds when it wants to bend.
Nor do I really understand the concept of a tyre being "worked in"
My guess is that the spokes would have to be catastrophically loose if fitting a tyre was going to affect the trueness.
I feared truing my front wheel (and rear while I was at it) and it was a breeze. If you use your brake pads as a guide, you can see where the wheel is out of line and you can tighten/loosen it into the correct direction.Well, great article, I have printed it out as i have to true my front wheel this weekend. Wish me luck
