Campy Rear Hub is Tight - Adjustment ?
I bought a lightly used rear wheel off Ebay with a Campy Record hub, probably 2006 or 2007 version. It feels smooth when I spin the axle by hand, but when I tighten it onto some dropouts to test it under load, it doesn't spin perfectly freely. With my old Nuovo Record hubs I could dial in the bearing adjustment perfectly and they were like "butta".
I openened them up and everything's nice & clean inside, but there's no locknut type setup to micro-adjust bearings ..... What's the deal with adjusting these hubs ?
