Main Question or Discussion Point

In a class demonstration, a bicycle wheel was held on an axle and spun. The result came to be that the wheel while rotating held a vertical position while holding it by a string attached to the end of the axle. After the wheel stopped rotating its vertical position ceased and the wheel attained a horizontal position.

How and why does that happen?
