    Rear wheel out of true

    Cleaning bike today , decided to run up bike in gear on centre stand as a little check on hub noises etc. Noticed rear wheel looks to have a noticeable up and down movement possible 3-5mm. Looks like I need a visit to a spoke wheel man. Any suggestions for Essex area as don't think I can tackle myself. ?

    Is it really just the wheel or is the complete rear end moving due to the slack in the drive train?
    You can take a screwdriver and run it over the spokes, a "poing" sound is good and a "plok" sound is bad.
    If i remember correct the spokes need to be torqued down to 14Nm starting at the bad spokes.
    This type of wheel is mostly not possible to straighten when the problem is lateral but diagonal it could work out when all the spokes are at the right tension.

    Ray I hear you but if full drive train hugger would surely move up and down as attached to rear hub. Fairly sure rear wheel, but will check for loose spokes . Will get wheel checked just hope it not hit something large and beyond a fix .

    All in all it's a pretty sturdy wheel and i did some crazy sh#t with the CT.

    If i remember correct the spokes need to be torqued down to 5.5Nm (not 14 as i thought to remember!!!) starting at the bad spokes.

    Thanks @Max2007
    I didn't had the time to look it up and i had the wrong number in mind.
    Sadly i cannot correct it in my original post so i hope like this it s clear enough that i was wrong with the 14Nm and it should be 5.5Nm.
