I have a "knocking" play in the rear wheel of my Verenti Kilmeston. It probably equals a millimetre or two of play at the rim. I have tried tightening what seem to be the cones, but it's not really making a difference. They are getting very stiff now to tighten further, and nervous about going to far and ruining something.
They are the Verenti Me branded wheels, which are labelled as special editions from Pro-Lite, but no other details available.
Has anyone tried to adjust the hubs on this bike?
Righty then, you probably get a lot of first posts like this but I am in need of some advice, or at least some wild opinions partially based on fact.
I've had a slightly knackered Specialized hybrid for the last 2 years, it's been absolutely fine, gets me to and from work every day and I've done a couple of longer (200-ish miles) trips on it. But I think the time has finally come to invest a little more (£800-£1000) on a 'nicer' bike.
After a lot of research and a few test rides I've narrowed things down to a choice between the Specialized Secteur Elite or the Verenti Kilmeston.
Wiggle describe the Kilmeston as offering ‘versatility and value’ and on initial inspection you can see where they’re coming from – compact gearing, rack and mudguard eylets and a near full Sram Rival groupset for £900! The Verenti range has been receiving rave reviews throughout the cycling press since the launch so we gave the Kilmeston nearly two months of testing day in day out to see what the bike is like to live with long term.
