    Rear Maxle problem on '12 Rumblefish

    ..and another smal issue with my Rumblefish (not related to the other one).

    The rear wheel had a little bit of play, if i don't torque down my Maxle like a maniac.

    I'm aware of the adjustment procedure of the Maxle (Not using it as a wing nut, internal adjustment with the inner hex bolt). The ABP bolts seem to be torqued down okay. Haven't checked the bearings.

    Maxle closure needs a lot of force too, when i adjust the inner hex to remove the play in the system.

    Any ideas?

    I had a similar issue that was caused by too much play in the hub bearings.

    Thanks, i'll check the hubs. They're Hopes, by the way. They don't seem to be running too well, but it would surprise me if the bearings would've gone bad after just one year of riding.
