Frame question
Thread started by Avis_One at 04.5.09 - 5:22 pm

So I have this road frame but when I set it up to ride about a block into the ride the wheel slanted to the left. coming off the frame. I was thinking that I didnt tighten the wheel enough but i did it 3 other times and the same thing happened. Now Ive tried other rims on it and same thing happnes the wheel slants to the left. Could the frame be messed up from the back? And if so am I able to fix that? thanks

reply


If the rear wheel is a quick release it's probably the wheel/axle not the frame.

make sure that the axle does not extend beyond the outside edges of the frame, on either side...

and if it's a quick release axle, you need to snug it up and then close the quick release...

sorry for crowding you question about frames and errant wheels thread.

I hope you figure it out.

if the axle isnt secure when you pedal you will pull the wheel forward making it angle to the left.

Ive tried both quick release and bolt rims. Both of them after a few pedals shift to the left. So it may not be the frame then?



Avis_One

Using some washers between the bolts and the frame might help. Also, when tightening the bolts, try going back and forth, snugging them up a little bit at a time, so that there's more or less even tension between each side.

would that apply the same for a quick release rims?



Avis_One

I don't think washers are generally used with quick-releases. You might check to see if your (quick-release) axle sticks out a little bit beyond the dropout, which would mean that the width of the axle would keep the nuts from tightening down on the dropouts enough. Hope that makes sense.

Also, Sheldon Brown says that aluminum quick-release skewers tend to have problems when used in horizontal dropouts:

You say it's a road frame, but is it set up as a road bike with gears or as a fixed gear?

If it's a fixed gear, you shouldn't EVER use a quick release skewer, but should only use bolts and bolt the wheel down VERY tightly.

No its a road frame. Im going to mess w/ it a little bit more and see what comes out of it. But like I said both types of rims,quick & bolts, come off and slant to the left when ridden.

Bring it by your local bike co-op - Bikerowave, Bike Oven, Bike Kitchen.

It's pretty unusual that a bike with a derailer is having so many problems with a shifting wheel, unless you're doing something completely wrong with installing it.

It's probably an easy fix, but pretty difficult to diagnose over the internet.

Yeah Im pretty sure its an easy fix. I will be doing that some time this week for sure

Make sure you're using a traditional enclosed-cam skewers, made for bikes with horizontal dropouts:

http://www.sheldonbrown.com/skewers.html

(Good enclosed-cam skewers also work fine for fixed gear, too.)

Failing that I'd make sure the dropouts are aligned. You can bend them back within reason if it's a steel frame.
