    Front Wheel bearings

    Hey guys can someone tell me what the symptoms would be if my front wheel bearing was going? I get a vibration while breaking but the ride is smooth while riding. Could this be the bearing? Or would i get vibrations all the time?

    thanks

    Nope, most likely a brake issue.
    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.

    i would guess warped rotor, or possibly bottomed (soft) forks.

    but with how new your bike is, either guess would probably be wrong
    no

    Bearings just make rumbling sounds when done in. Vibration is brakes or wheel balance; in your case, brakes.

    There's a couple of ways to tell. One is to lay up a known straight edge and look for the bends. THe other is to put a dial guage onto an arm clamped to a fork leg and check for runout. And more importantly runout that jumps around in less than one full revolution that indicates a bend or kink.
