Ksyrium wheels and loose front hubs

Notices
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 wheels and loose front hubs

I posted this in mechanics too, but figured it would more visible here. My NOS 2010 Elites have a loose front hub when installed correctly. I compared it to my buddy's new 2011 SL's and that front hub has the same thing going on.

Any thoughts, experience, etc? Thanks

Define "loose". Axle slop from side to side?

Did you get the bearing adjustment tool that comes with every new set? If you did, it's a 1 minute adjustment.

That's exactly what I feel. No tools came with the wheels. I guess there is a specific one for the Mavics? Because it doesn't look like it takes a regular cone wrench.

A spanner will work as well though I'm not sure of the exact size.
