My bike is pretty stupid now. Whenever i land on my back tire from a big hop/gap my back end makes a squeaky noise, but it doesn't sound like when my tire squeaks. What do?

Yeah, get someone who knows how to true wheels and true it for you, free that is. Or if you're really desperate and can't mess around with a spoke wrench or something, go to a bike shop and expect at least $10+ for truing and re-tensioning. I've never had to do that, thank god, but my spokes were seriously loose and my tire was almost rubbing my frame. Spokes were popping as I rode.

Do not true your wheels yourself, my spokes were loose so I thought I'd tighten them up, got a spoke wrench and just tighten the ones that were loose, fucked it up really badly, so untread.

Got it re-trued for €15 each and my LBS

Niggas, my spokes are tight. Couls it just be my tires making the squeak?

It's gotta be a couple spokes.. or even one. Your brakes tightened properly? Your hub working fine??

A similar noise came from my Front Wheel for a while because the Cones were just slightly loose (Not enough to even notice other than the noise). Everytime I landed, just like your's.

Make sure all nuts on the axle are tight then take a spoke key and give them a quarter turn on each spoke ANTICLOCKWISE, then av a test ride and if it still happens repeat but make sure you do EVERY spoke evenly and ANTICLOCKWISE, if your wheel is fairly true this wont hurt it as you'll be doing all spokes evenly and it won't be any worse than before.

Freestyle is the answer to everything --
a fresh way to approach a dull or a
dangerous thing.
to do a dull thing with style
is preferable to doing a dangerous thing
without it.
