Hello All. I need your help. I have a set of lightweight Ventoux wheels that need repair. The front wheel has started to devlope some slight lateral play. How do I adjust the hub?

In short.....you don't. :(
It's a hub that is fitted with cartridge bearings that are shimmed on the axle to allow for free play.
Do you have any play in the hub when you have any weight on the bike?
Sometimes you can get some play when the wheel in un-weghted but it should disapear when under the riders weight.
It is possible to replace them if the wheel is out of warranty, but it's tricky and time consuming job.
Cheers, Rob.

I have had ObieGen1, Ventoux/dt Gen2, Ventoux/tune Gen2 and ventoux/Tune Gen1--all have had that "preload syndrome". Very annoying i know especailly when you pick the bike up and set it down--it vibrates a little. BUT when riding i have not seen that issue of side to side play with any of the LW wheels i have had.

Thanks everybody :thumbup: .The play I am experience only occurs when the wheel is unweighted. I glade to find out that this is a normal occurrence.

Happy riding.

According to Carbonsports, there shouldn't be any lateral play on the front hubs.
This is abnormal.

Refer to the link below.

It may be called 'abnormal' by Carbonsports, but by the very nature of the design it will always be prone to this end float play.
It's nothing to worry about within reason, and should dissapear when weighted and the balls or pushed into the groove of the bearing.
A wonderful earner for Carbonsports though :) an unservicable hub that wears easily and a guarantee of return work time after time? :wink:

Im writing here as I donno where to put this question; I have a pair of LW which seems to have some lateral play as described here and in many other topics (just search "play in dt swiss hubs").
I checked the bearings (SKF) and they seems to have a very small play which is really minimal, and it could be the standard but need to check with someone.
Has anyone else experienced this?

I didnt have a chance to test ride the wheels due to bad weather.

@micky,

Just to be certain, the bearing play is coming from the front or rear wheels? You mentioned bearing from DT Swiss, I would assume this is on the rear wheels?
I had some bearing play issues on the LW Gen3 front a couple of years back, wheel was sent back to Carbonsports for readjustment, problem fixed.
Recently had a similar problem occurring on the Fernweg front with a mileage less than 700km, sent back to Carbonsports and was replaced with a new front wheel. Zero bearing play on my other four pairs, both front and rear.
I believe may need to send yours to Carbonsports to have it checked.

Cheers

Before you send them back, just change the bearings first. From experience with Gen IIs, I suspect that it will solve your problem.

Thanks guys.
Indeed before sending back or even contacting CarbonSport I wanted to try to change the bearing with new ones.
Hope it will helps!
