Today i removed my back wheel to clean the cassette and noticed that it could easily be removed by hand.

The centre jagged nut holding the cassette in place (techinal i know) is only done up hand tight?

When the wheel is back in position on the frame there is no way the nut can untighten again.

Is this normal or am i missing a part?

    Campag recommend 50 N.m, which is substantially more than hand tight.
