Wheel / Tire feels lopsided...feels like i am hitting a constant bump
At the end of a ride today it felt like I was riding over a bump each revelation of the front wheel?. After a quick look I could not find the issue - spokes were all tight wheel/tire looked normal..
What should I be looking for? Could the wheel be out of true? Could the tire not be seated properly? I recently did change a flat on that tire and put in a new ultra light tube.
thanks for any help
Check the tire, it's probably not seated correctly
sorry if its a dumb question but how do you get it to seat correctly ?

If this doesn't work and the bead still won't seat correctly, try a little soapy water on the bead prior to pumping up the tire to help the bead slip into place.
