Looking for some mechanical advice! 200 miles or so ago I recently stuck a pair of Reynolds Assault wheels on my bike. Today the front hub has developed a small amount of lateral/side to side play, maybe 1 to 2mm. This can be reduced, but not eliminated, by tightening the QR way beyond what I would consider normal.
The hubs have sealed bearings and appear to have no preload adjustment to remove the slop. My old Fulcrum wheel set had sealed bearings too, but had a nifty little 2mm allen key bolt that adjusted preload. How do you fix this on hubs that don't have this feature?
Annoyingly the wheel rattles a little if the front end of the bike is lifted 2 to 3 inches and dropped to the ground. I've confirmed its not the bike or headset by switching back to the old Fulcrum and doing the same thing. I'm assuming this could be related to the lateral play i'm seeing in the hub?
Given the lack of adjustment I was wondering if reseating the bearings might help? I would hope that after 200 miles the front bearing isn't shot. I would normally visit my LBS for help, but I've recently moved and have yet to find a decent one here.
