Are Ksyrium front hubs just loose?
I just got a NOS 2010 Ksyrium Elite wheelset. I can feel a little play on the front hub/axle when the wheel has been installed and tightened. So I compared it to my buddies 2011 Ksyrium SL's.....he's got the same thing.
Anybody know what this is about? I thought I could just break in my new cone wrenches, but it doesn't look as simple as my old wheels were. Thanks
There should be no play when the QR is clamped down. Most likely the bearings are not adjusted properly. Get yourself the Mavic bearing adjustment tool that came with the wheelset, go on Mavic's website and adjust according to instructions.

Will do. Thanks for info. Just need to track down a wrench now.
Be careful. Those are radial bearings and do not like to be the least bit over tight. You might be able to take some out by really tightning down on the QR.
Easiest adjustment I've ever made once I tracked down the spanner tool. Thanks for the help
