Hi Folks,

Pretty much after every ride, my rear king 15mm iso hub gets loose. :madman: I can feel little wiggle when I move the tires sideways. I can still hear the bee buzzing sound, and the hub/wheel has performed without issue. However, I am aftraid that I may be ruining my hub by riding it with little play on the hub.
I use to work on the regular iso hubs with 2 5 mm hex tool. However, on 15 mm hub, I cannot use any of my tools to tighten it.

I searched this forum for simlar issues, but could not find it.

Any type of help is appreciated.

thanks,

Thank you for posting the image.
It is a rear hub that gets loose.
I have had this more than a year.
I will use 2.5 hex...and loosen the cone...hand tighten the bearings..then tighten the cone.
Lets see if that works.
This gets very frustrated at times.

After you adjust it to the correct preload you shouldn't have any problems. I have a few King wheel sets and with the newer one piece axle-collar system you do not have to remove the wheel to adjust the preload.
