I just purchased a bike with 2001 Ksyriums. The wheels don't spin up like my Ritchey Zero WCS pros. Can I adjust the bearings in the ksyriums and if so how?

Your wheels should have come with a bearing adjustment tool. A little plastic thing that looks like an open wrench and has small pins on the flat open end.
The hub has a gray adjustment ring with indentations on the side. Slowly rotate this with the provided wrench just enough to take out play from the hub. Do not over tighten or you will destroy the bearings. Leaving it too loose with have the same results.
IMHO Mavic hubs, when properly adjusted, spin as well as or better than just about anything else out there.

Thanks alot!!

Sometimes its the simple info that matters most. I will contact my dealer and get my tool or check with a buddy who must have one already.
