    Velomax/Easton R3 hub bearing loose

    I have an Easton Orion front wheel where there is play in the hub. I know this has been spoken of before but I never felt there was a good answer to this. Is there a way to tighten the bearings? I know the R4 was improved to make that easy, but this is the earlier R3. I can't find anything on the Easton site.

    Hmm... If the "cones" are tight and u still have some play in the wheel what u can do is to cut a washer made of a coke can and put it between the cone and the bearing. I have heard from people putting aluminum foil paper washers for the same purpose. Since is in the middle of 2 pieces once there it wont go no where and will stay there forever.

    Good luck.
