hi, my rear ksyrium elite wheel has some play in it, so much so that when i get out of the saddle the wheel rubs on the blocks. is it possible to tighten the wheel to reduce the play? if so how is it done?
i hate hills (cos i'm fat)

    I notice I have some play in mine when I push the rim sideways with wheel in frame, 2mm or so flex

    The hub bearings seem tight enough- see other threads -easy adjustment, and the wheels run true and smooth, (5000 miles on)

    I don't know whether a bit of flex is expected or whether there should be none. doesnt seem to affect the riding tho. slacken the blocks a tad?
