I noticed my mavic wheels aren't turning as well as they should do. Here's a video to demonstrate what's happening to my wheel but not as bad as this example.

The only reason i managed to get to this point in when sprinting on the bike, moving the bike side to side i get a rub on the brake pads so i thought i'd tighten the bearings. When i first got the wheel i loosened the bearings to make it spin faster (more)

Any help would be great. Especially people with this wheel

    If you've run the wheels with the adjusters loose then you may have damaged the bearings. Suggest you take it to your LBS who will be able to assess whether the bearings are damaged and can adjust them correctly
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
  • I tightened them back up yesterday to stop the play but when i mean loosened, i meant just a little bit too free it up which i heard a lot of people doing. I certainly feel like i have no bearing problems.
