Currently on the stock fit freecoaster hub that comes on the new Ethan Corriere complete. At first it was all good, now for some reason there's a slight amount of wiggle even though the wheel is tighter than a goldfish pussy. Wondering if anyone else has an Ethan model with this hub or a coaster in general that wiggles/goes "clunk" when bringing the back wheel down hard. I've got a peg/hub guard on the non drive side but I feel like that shouldn't make a difference. Any input is appreciated.

Are the cones tightened properly? Could be worn bearings or warped shell, but some freecoasters are prone to have a little wobble

Cones are good and bearings should be fine, haven't had the hub that long. Probably is just a wobbler, it is a stock hub anyway. Got my eyes on a freemix haha.
