    side to side play in rear wheel what is it what to do

    I seem to have a bit of side to side play in my rear wheel. I've tried fiddling with the quick release but it doesn't seem to go away. It's a closed hub so there's nothing to adjust. What is this and how can I fix it?

    I have these wheels with about 5200 miles on them:

    Ritchey Pro™ Z DS Wheels
    http://www.ritcheylogic.com/wheels.htm

    • OCR rim and Zero System hub eliminates dish for a stronger, more reliable rear wheel
    • Aerodynamic 27mm front/28mm rear profile and 20-spoke radial front/24-hole 2-cross maximizes lateral stiffness, yet remains vertically compliant
    • Laterally stiff but compliant -Bladed, stainless steel spokes
    • Cold forged and machined Pro hubs are strong enough for radial lacing
    • Silky smooth, low maintenance custom cartridge bearings packed with Ritchey grease
    • High Tolerance machined sidewalls straight to .03mm
    • 1,665 grams/pair

    Sounds like loose bearings.It's easy enough to see where the play is with the wheel on the bike and secured by the QR. There is adjustment for some cartridge types.
