Re: Wheel Alignment: The String Thing
It seems like I have the same issue as a couple of other people, where the front/rear axles are parallel (there is the same distance between the string and the 'front of front tire' and 'rear of front tire' on the left side and on the right side), however the wheels are not centered on the same line (measurements on the right side are less than on the left side). Even though this is the case, I don't feel any wobble when letting go of handle bars for a bit.
When someone asked about this same issue, Pogo quoted FOG's original instructions saying to "adjust the rear wheel chain adjusters to correct the error." I have read the instructions for the string thing several times and am unclear about what the chain adjusters are. First time reading the instructions I figured that FOG was talking about the axle adjuster nuts that move the rear axle...but now I'm not so sure.
I thought that tightening/loosening the axle adjuster nuts moved the corresponding ends of the rear axle back and forth along the swing-arm and that their proper adjustment meant that the rear axle is parallel to the front axle. But they don't seem to do anything to actually move the wheel from side to side.
Could someone please provide clarification?
