cant find anything on the campag site on adjusting my wheel bearings, just a lot of warnings about accidents , injury or death.

anyone know how to adjust these?

    I believe they have cartraige bearing they aren't adjustable so you will need to replace them.
    The bearings will have a number on them (something like Rs6020) write that number and get some new ones from a bearing shop as they are much cheaper that bike shops. quite easy to replace

    Good luck

    The hub will have some sort of adjustment - depends on the hub design but there will be some form of cone/adjuster on the axle - variations include traditional cone spanners, a combination of cone spanner and allen key in the end of the axle or adjustable cones using a small allen key pinch bolt arrangement. However, if you fail to adjust-out the play, then it will be time for new cartridge bearings.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    they don't always have adjustment, (Hope hubs for instance has push in ends) and if you are using the nuts on the outside to take out play in a worn cartridge bearing it will sort of work but the wheel wont run as smoothly/quickly as you would want it to
