Mavic Ksyrium Bearing Adjustment(2 posts)

Mavic Ksyrium Bearing AdjustmentTiger

Hey,

I could use some advice on the bearing adjustment for Mavic Ksyriums. My front wheel has about 1/8 of play when in the dropouts. The QR is tight, but I noticed that the bearing adjustment was loose. How tight should they be? Thanks in advance

1/8 inch is too much. You don't want the wheel flopping around, but you don't want it tight, either.

Basically, slowly tighten it until it starts to feel tight. Then back it off a bit. It's all by feel. Hopefully you have the special tool.
