The wheel nuts on the ends of the axle may have been a bit loose allowing the axle to shift a bit in the frame. Try loosening both nuts with a spanner, centre the wheel carefully, then tighten the nuts again (need to be good and tight). Then re-check that the wheel is running correctly.

  • One should make sure the wheel is pulled all the way rearward before centering and tightening. May 3, 2015 at 13:19
  • Yes - and this should leave the chain without slack - (but not crazily taut either).
