Mavic Equipe hub, how tight should "expansible bearing support" be
I needed to change a freehub body on my 2010 Ksyrium Equipe, and in the process the axel had to be removed and remounted.
The relevant Mavic manual includes this step:
4) Tighten expansible bearing support ... until it's in contact with the bearing, and the loosen it one half turn.
Well, when I do loosen it half a turn after contact the axel ends up with free play. However if I keep it tight at or beyond contact with the bearing there will be increasing friction (discovered this when I first did a wrong install by tightening it somewhat hard, which led to noticeable friction)
What's the right thing to do here?
