Wobbling freewheel
#1
I noticed that my freewheel was wobbling around, everything felt solid. It looks like all of the gears are moving together. Could the freewheel have been put on wrong by someone or do I have a bad hub or some other problem?
Have fun and just enjoy the ride

this is a common problem, especially on low end bikes, as long as it does not affect gear changing, it does not matter.
A replacement may be the same!!

Thanks for the help everyone
