Nucleon front wheel wobble at high speed(3 posts)

Nucleon front wheel wobble at high speedAlexC

Today I was speeding at 30MPH and the front wheel started to wobble and I had no choice but to slow down. My Litespeed Classic is equipped with Campagnolo Nucleon wheels and a Kestrel EMS Pro fork. I checked the wheel and everything looks ok. Does anybody have any ideas regarding the problem.

I'd be sure that the wheel bearing play is set properly. The wheel should not move noticeably from side to side near the brake pads. Check that the rim is running true. If you've just put on a new tire, be sure that it's doesn't have an obvious defect, like a bump or wobble in the tread. Also be sure the headset is tight. That's all I can think of.
