Rim rocking when tightened in dropouts

Posted on
  • New set of Prime Race disc wheels. When in the dropouts and the QR closed tight, I discovered today that the rim rocks side to side. Now there is no movement where the quick releases are in contact with the dropouts so I'm not sure why it's happening.

    Anyone with a similar experience?

  • Sounds like you need to tighten the end cap/cone/whatever they're called on the hubs

    If you take the skewer out and look down the axle, if its hex shaped, get an allen key in each side and try tightening them together

  • Thanks! Will give that a try tonight.

  • It will be cones as said already. Worth sorting asap as it can wreck your hubs if you leave it. Plus it's easy to do
