If you practice mountain biking, you know maintenance and regular checks of the vehicle are fundamental. Sometimes, with a bit of attention, we realize that the wheel rim is touching the brake pads. This is due to a bad alignment of the wheel that makes it not centered: a stone on the road, a fall or just a normal loosening could be enough. In the following video we'll see how to bring our wheel back into proper alignment.
The procedure doesn't change in the case of 26" wheels (old mountain bikes) or 29" (racing bikes).
