front wheel

I just bought a new tomos sprint. It is running great but there is something in the front wheel that is popping. It is a loud pop sound. I took the wheel apart and there is nothing in the brake. My wheel looks sort of bent and the fender is rubbing against the tire and melting it. Does any one know what it could be?

Re: front wheel

it may be your wheel bearings?

wait for some body else to answer

I would have thought the wheel bearings also. Follow your manufacturer's instructions for disassembling your hub and have a look. Maybe one of the ball bearings is damaged/gone.

A bicycle repair shop should also be able to do this for you if you don't want to do it yourself.
