I've had a pair of Ksyriums for about a month now and already noticed some play in both front & rear hubs. I've heard the sealed hubs are easily adjustable - but how???
BTW they are Ksyrium Elites not SSC....(n/m)Chris_UK

If you don't have the tool, you can buy a spanner at your lbs. You do it with the wheels on the bike. If you can move the wheel back and forth (there is always a little play when mounted), then just take the tool/spanner, and go about a third of a turn in the clockwise position. Repeat until happy. I have both the ksyriums and the heliums, and they work the same. I believe your elite's have the same type hub. Should have adjustment indents on the non-drive side where the tool fits.
