I've had mavics for over 4 years now and towards the end of this year before I packed my rourkey away for the winter I noticed slight play in the hubs onmthe wheels.

Never had a pair of these serviced

A bit of advice
Is it easy tom service them or better to let a lbs do them.
I do everything else on my bikes but never touched mavic wheels.

They have to have done over 15,000 miles. Bombproof wheels

    mavic technical info is here...

    best way is have a look and see if you fancy doing it

    you need to look in the technical manual for the correct year(s)

    confusingly mavic sometimes splatters the details for a wheel over a couple of different years' manuals, for instance you need 2003 and 2005 manuals to cover the cosmic carbone sl

    it'll want you to login, teh secret codez are...

    Mavic hubs are easy to adjust - just need a 5mm Allen key and a pin spanner - remove QR, insert Allen key into one end of the axle and adjust cones with the pin spanner. If can't be adjusted-out, they are standard cartridge-bearings so easy to replace - you'll find the bearing numbers online, so don't need to get them from a bike-specialist
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
