    Hi There !!

    Im having slight side to side movement of my rear wheel.Its got a shimanoe hub with center lock disc and cassette. Iv got the tool for removing disc and cassette but can anyone tell me if theres a spanner of some sort for tightening the bearing nuts on the spindle as iv tightened them hand tigh but am still getting a bit of play.

    Does anyone know if hand tight is good enough. Or will i need some sort of spanner or is it more likely to be the bearings????

    Cheers guys Ash!!

    Remove the bearings and re-fit new ones with some nice grease. 8)
