I had this front wheel built with a Paul front disk hub. It's a good sturdy wheel.

The problem is I can seem to get the hub to stay in adjustment. It has this little bit of wiggle I can feel with my rigid fork.

Anybody else have this issue? Any suggestions? Is this the right forum to be asking?

Might need new bearings. Paul hubs have a bearing preload adjuster but the bearings they come with are not angular contact bearings, which means there is only so much play you can compensate for with preload without causing binding. Sounds to me like one or both of the bearings are a little too worn or out of spec and the play is bigger than the smaller window of adjustment that you have
