    I’ve been having problems with the rear wheel on my bike. It won’t seem to stay in place. I line it up tighten the nuts and as soon as I ride it even the slightest distance uphill it slips out of place and rubs on the frame. I can’t seem to get it to stay in place. Any suggestions would be great.

    You could try replacing your nuts (no pun intended) There are some very good lock nuts about called K nuts they have a serated flange on the face that tightens up to the frame, they are used in motorsport and I would think if you walked into any good engineers supplys holding your nuts in your hand they should help you. If its a quick release thats not gripping it could be stretching in that case its a new quick release skewer would be needed.

    Has the rear wheel been modified or adjusted, it could be that the axle is too short, this is a common problem when axles are not long enough.
