its a new cinema zx i got for christmas, i pretty much solved it. the drive side cone nut wasnt tight enough which let the axle slip around. it has little to no wobble now. turns out its cuz my dumb ass greased my axle haha.

Coasters wobble, it's just part of the deal. I've had everycoaster I've had wobble, some sooner than later. Everything from merritt demolition odyssey. It's a cassette deficiency lol never cause me a problem tho l, but the first coaster I had it definitely had me searching the web just like yourself

Coasters and cassettes should not wobble. Even after they break in, You can get the wobble out. Ask yeet. I spent a day explaining how to get the wobble out. I already gave him a detailed approach on how to get hub wobble out. Yes some freecoaster are more prone to wobble but doesn't mean they should.

Isnt this like the 4th post youve made about your cinemas wheels and you ask a question and i tell you how to fix it and then you post again ask the same question and then say how you fixed it hahaha. Greasing the axle didnt cause the wobble, its because you tightened it the way i told you. Your style Coaster should be greased, if anything the grease on the axle help you tighten the jam nuts more.

You might be my hero yeet.

Take a crescent wrench and tighten both come nuts a little tighter than hand tight, it should stay for a while

The driveside needs to be TIGHT...this is a male axle freecoaster,... The driver is a long piece, with 2 pressed bearings inside of it and has the task of pressing against the BIG bearing to keep half of the assembly tight. It needs to be more than little tighter than hand tight to keep stuff tight.

Some female axle hubs with conenuts may need handtight conenuts.but this is because how the axle moves, and also how the compression of the assembly works.

Think of the driver as a peg for a second, the peg is useless if the bolts arent tight. Its gonna flop around because it doesnt have force holding it place. Its gonna wobble and flop when you ride.

Freecoasters should not wobble, they will bc manufacturers don't engineer the wobble out of them. If you pay 200+ for a hub, it shouldnt have play. I may sound salty, but the engineers get paid a hell of lot more than myself and others on here who would gladly design the faults outa the hub(prop for free too) haha.
