I've been running the stock wheelset on the F5, and though I have a "race" wheelset on the way, I had planned on keeping this as my heavy trainer. However, I keep having the rear hub loosen (excuse my complete lack of technical knowledge in this area, my expertise doesn't extend past contact points and drivetrain). A good bit of wobble has developed and gets so bad that the hub rattles back and forth and the rim contacts the brakes. The wheelset isn't out of true (I know what that is). It is clearly the hub. My Felt LBS has had the wheel once, and tightened it, but that only lasted about 2 rides.
Its gotten some pretty heavy mileage this year, but it shouldn't be wobbling this soon. Anyone else had problems with these hubs? Any suggestions? Or should I just ditch this entry level wheelset?
