I bought a bike for my girlfriend about six months ago. It's a women's road bike.
She's rode it a bit, but all of it on the road. She's never crashed it and it's always been in good care.
She's taken the wheel off a few times to put into a car. But yeah, each time we've taken good care of it.
Today, I noticed that the wheels were touching the brakes. It's been doing more and more later, so I've had to re-adjust and widen the brakes, but today, I realized that unless I completely undo the brakes, it won't touch.
I turned the bike upside down and realized that it was touching, because as the wheel is spinning it was kind of wobbling.
Now I'm not sure what has caused this. Like I've said, we've had it for six months, but it wasn't like we rode it all the time, the bike has never crashed and as far as we know, we've always taken good care of it.
So is it like a fairly normal thing? Is it possible to get it fixed? Could it be a flaw with the product? Should I be ringing up the bike shop I bought it from to complain? Or is six months like too long, and I should be expecting things like that to happen?
I have a Fuji Absolute 4.0 - it's been a fairly good introduction for her into riding I think. Nice and light.
