The problem is that the bearings in the hub have to be adjusted, and as it comes from bd, it's probably way too tight. However, the bearings are not very good in those hubs, so you have to compromise between a little bit of roughness and a little bit of looseness. You can adjust them yourself, but you will need a couple of 13mm cone wrenches for the front and 15mm for the rear. This is why it's better to pay a little more, and get a Kilo TT Pro, which has better sealed cartridge bearing hubs that do not require adjustment.
