    not normal.

    either tighten the bearings or replace them. it depends on the hub.

    have a look and see.

    as it says
    cartridge bearings
    nothing you can do other than change the bearings.

    is it a easy job to do my self. and what bearings would buy mate
  • yes, match the bearing codes that are on the shields of the old bearings. get some matching ones off ebay or your local bearing suppliers. drift the old ones out, press the new ones in.

    cheers guys.

    juat hd a look at it and there is a bit loose i am sure its not ment to spin round it looks like the housing over the bearing is loose coz the same bit on the oposite side dont spin freely. the spindle spins as normal and still fells very smooth
  • in english please?
