    Aksium rear hub has play, how to remedy?

    I've got about 4500 miles on this wheel, the hub is showing a tiny amount of wobble. Do I just tighten the nuts on the outsides of the hub? Anybody have a link showing some diagrams on how to maintain this?

    Thanks all.

    when I clicked on the link at the bottom labled "manuals" I found the info you're looking for in section 13 of this manual:

    Thanks IGH. I found that after I posted. How do you like those incredibly detailed instructions? I guess its better than too much detail?

    They weren't much. Did you receive the wrench with the wheels? Looks like they're saying to get rid of the play.

    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)
