'99 - '01 Specialized Enduro with stock rear rim (it's the metallic red Mavic rim) and Specialized hub.
This never happened before, so I'm gonna describe it as best as I can. Half way home from my LBS, I started to notice an intermitent vibration seeming to come from the seatpost, but I knew it wasn't the seatpost. I thought it might be coming from a rubbing rear V-brake pad, but it wasn't it. Then I thought it might be from my crank bearings. I don't think the problem is there. When I was about a block away from my home, the vibration became more obvious and constant. I thought my rear wheel might fall off. The vibration seems to be coming from the rear tire, but when I stopped and spun the tire off the ground, I couldn't see any big wobble. When I got home, I checked to see if the rear wheel was on tight. It was. I then spun the rear wheel again. What I noticed was a faint vibrating sound or something like someone putting a piece of paper on the spokes as the wheel spins, that sort of sound. So is it my rear hub bearings giving out? When I ride the bike, the vibration seems to travel up the seatpost, and I can feel it.
Can I still ride with a bad rear hub, if that's the case?
Btw, LBS did not touch my bike at all.
