OK, fronts are generally worth a lot less than rears, but I take your point.

E-bay is a complete pain in the rear :( But i really need to scrape some money together...so may ,if no-one is interested in these stick em on E-bay with low reserve..real shame cos they are super nice wheels with hardly any use on em :shock:

Yea no worries, i didnt seem to be able to preload the bearings enough to take all of the play out of it...It is just an alloy collar held with 3 grub screws..I just downloaded & printed off a tech sheet for servicing the hub and it says to lay the wheel on its side & gently tap the adjusting collar with a soft mallet and socket! Not tried this so it may do the trick :) To be honest i need to get rid of the wheels fro the cash as i just had to pay for other set i have had built :(
You can feel the play when wheel is installed in frame but not really when riding...Thing is the hub as hardly any use by me..Hope this elaborates a bit for ya :D

My offer still stands "ish" for the front wheel--no commission no selling fees!
