Here at Pinkbike we get inundated with all kinds of questions, ranging from the basic "Can I have stickers" to more in-depth, soul-searching types of queries like if you should pop the question or what to name your first child. Ask Pinkbike is an occasional column where we'll be hand-picking and answering questions that have been keeping readers up at night, although we'll likely steer clear of those last two and keep it more tech oriented.
How Do I Stop My Wheel From Slipping in the Frame?Question:
Pinkbike user @LouisEvans1
asked this question in the Dirt Jumping & Street forum
: So a couple of months ago I bought the parts to build a new dirt jump bike. I read into it (looking back now obviously not enough) and “thought” I had everything right. As it is now my rear wheel (happens to be a downhill wheel Hope hubs and a QR skewer) pulls forward in the drop outs when I pedal and with my tire being too wide rubs on the frame. I have set it to a place where the wheel runs smooth beforehand. Anyone got any ideas about what I could do? Thanks.
Too Good to Be True? Question: @tomas2000
asls in the All Mountain, Enduro & Cross-Country forum: So I’m about to buy a new enduro bike. I've just seen a nice second-hand bike advertisement: Norco range A 7.1 …basically a top-end enduro race bike. The bike was used for one season and it still has got a warranty, but it was used in races the entire season - at least 10 enduro races and some downtowns. Does it really matter?
