Hi all, this is my cheery popping post so please be gentle! I have a slight problem with my front wheel and some help would be much appreciated. I have a specialized road bike which has Alex Rims (I know they're not the best and I will change them). This morning whilst riding to work I noticed a noise coming from the front of my bike and upon inspection, I noticed there was some movement in the front wheel...as if it was loose on the forks but it wasn't. Anyway, it was the bolts either side of the hub which I have tightened (by hand) and the movement is no longer there but now the front wheel spins slower than it did before and a lot slower than the rear. Why is this and what can I do to resolve it? I did do some reading before hand (great site with some very helpful people!!) and also did a search but couldn't find any answers so if there is someone out there that has an answer; it will be very much appreciated!!
