Default Back wheel is funny

     

i replaced my sprockets and when i put the back wheel on again and spin it, looks like its bent because it spins funny. How do I fix this? i don't think its actually bent but if it is, what happends if i try to ride it in this state?

You didn't align your axle. When you put your axle in you had two square spacers that went on either side of the swing arm. Each has little hash marks on them that correspond with a mark on the swing arm. Mark sure the have equal amounts on both sides and your tire will spin right.

This has happened to me before. The wheel isn't bent. You just have something out of place. Remove the wheel and reinstall it with care. You will probably notice what was wrong in the first place. Make sure the spacers are in place and the brake assembly is in order. It might help to look at another bike that is already set up. A friend's maybe?
