Got a Hope Bulb running at 20mm on a Mavic 721 rim. Rim is straight and spokes all good but I have some play in the front hub. Have removed the circlips that hold the 20mm bits in place and regeased the bearings then reseated the clips but there is some play in the hub.
Any ideas how to sort this? Only started happening in the last week and would prefer not to have to replace the hub as I have no skills in wheel building.
If it's side to side play, then it sounds like you need new bearings to me. The Bulb has the same FRONT HUB bearings as the Pro 2 (the rear bearings are different) so if you pick up a Pro 2 bearing kit, it will fit. You'll need to drift the old bearings out, and then drift the new ones back in. It's simple enough to do.
Alternatively, you can take a look at the bearings and make a note of the serial number (it'll be embossed on the bearing seal and it'll be something like 6802RS or similar). Then it's simply a case of ordering the same bearing(s) from any bearing supplier. This will work out cheaper that buying the dedicated Hope bearing kit.
Hope this helps
