    I've...

    been having similar issues. I seem to have finally gotten them setup right. I went just a tad tighter than I thought would be ok. The wheels seem to spin perfectly and the bearing thrust plate seems to be staying tight now. I really don't understand the idea of adjustable cartidge bearings anyway!

    I use a Paul hub on my front wheel and a couple rides ago it started to loosen up, I readjusted it when I got home but it loosened again. I will give your technique a try and see what happens.

    do you mean the bearing tension adjust?

    1) check the oring is in one piece (take the adjuster off and have a look see)
    2) de grease the oring or at least wipe it
    3) use minimum grease on the threaded section too (you *will* need to periodically check it is not seizing)

    that should do it. after i serviced mine a few years ago after a bearing change it did the same, but i had been a bit overzealous on the greasing...never slipped again.
