Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

ksyrium sl problems/questions

Hey,
i just got a set of ksyrium sl's and after putting some miles on them i noticed that when the wheels are in the fork i can grab the rim by the brake caliper and bend the entire rim to the pad. I thought these wheels were supposed to be stiff? I also feel some play in what i think to be the bearings. I got the tool to adjust the bearings, Is there a tutorial to adjust them?

Sometimes the bearings come a bit loose from Mavic.
With the wheel installed use the tool to take the play out of the bearings until you feel no play and call it a day.
