|Lying wheel? True Dat.||rightsaidfred|

|I noticed my rear wheel was wobbling to one side and slightly rubbing the brake pad for quite some time. I felt all the spokes, and one of them was quite looser than the others. So I tightened that up and it was worse. Then some other ones were loose, so I tightened those, loosened these, wiggled those and these, etc.
Now it is severely untrue. I cannot stand the lies!
It wobbles so much to the left in one spot now, that it comes to a complete stop when spinning freely.
Can I fix it myself? Have I buggered it up? Please help.
(I went to sheldon brown, but I only had a few minutes to read it, and it was how shall I say, "beyond me." Are there simpler solutions?)

|I would take the wheel to a good mechanic. It's not good riding on a wobbly wheel you can't fix. Goodluck!|

|I think you've proven with your tinkering that you CAN'T fix it yourself. Take it to a shop.|
