Play in mavic crossride rear hub
They are adjustable so you can take the play out.Posted 5 years ago
You need a 17mm open ended spanner and a 13mm cone spanner.
You undone the left hand locking nut with the 17mm spanner, screw in the left hand cone slightly using the 13mm cone spanner and then lock the locking nut back up.
Even on the new 2013 they work the same.
Not for me, we’ve had a few with play (even after being modified,which I really didn’t think would work anyway),and I was wondering whether it was widespread,or whether we’d just had a poor batch.Seems it may be the latter, but this is STW, so they may just have taken the bikes home, polished them, and given them pride of place in the living room 🙂Posted 5 years ago
I have put pictures of both on my facebook page here Which model of crossride do you have?Posted 5 years ago
The standard QR version according to Mavic 2013 tech sheets use their standard adjustable axle or is it the 15 / 12 that is compression fit?
Was sent back under warranty. Seemed tighter, just fitted it and is loose at hub. Suspect the thicker washer fix has been tried as cant see any evidence of new axle being fitted. Contacted bike supplier again. Another wheel sent back at the same time to the same supplier by a friend has come back similarly unsorted.Posted 4 years agomrelectricSubscriber
Just waiting for someone to ask for the Mavic tech site log in details.
A popular Groundhog Day thread on the STW massive.
Good heads up on how to fix this. Ill try it without the Mavic tool.Posted 4 years ago
Rear hub on mine has this play but are really old Crossmax STR (?) though so no use for the OP; sorry.timbomanMember
I recently bought a La Pierre Zesty 514 2013 from Evans Cycles- comes with Mavic Crossride wheels. After one ride I detected play in the rear hub- the wheel was sent to Mavic for inspection and returned ‘repaired’. The hub felt ok when it was returned but after my second ride it was loose again.
I took the wheel back to Evans and they supplied me with a new wheel.
I have just returned from a weekend away with the new replacement wheel and that too has become loose.
It looks like there is a manufacturing defect with these rear crossride wheels- internal hub bore is too big and so the bearings get play when subjected to a rider’s weight?
I’ve sent Mavic an email directly now and asked them what they think.
Watch this space!

Has anyone had any luck with sorting the free play in hubs of these wheels yet? I have just bought a Canyon 29er with X12 rear axel. I have done 4 rides and there is free play already in he rear. Have taken the wheel to my local bike shop, which is a Mavic dealer and they say, they have not seen this hub before. I am waiting on them contacting Mavic as to how to proceed.Posted 4 years ago
Does anyone have any updated info on this issue?
I have the same problem with a rear crossride using the 12 x 142mm axle. It’s developed play within 2 weeks of use.
I emailed the LBS where I bought it from about a week or so ago, they have attempted to get hold of Mavic with no luck so far.

You won’t get much help from mavic tech, apparently there is meant to be play. I gave up discussing the matter with them in the end. Managed to solve the problem withPosted 4 years ago
Ditto. Spanking new Crossmax XT’s converted to QR with the adapters out the box. Loads of play on the first ride.
I noticed that the adapters have play in them and that the diameter of the skewer is smaller than the hole in the adapter. It’s also slightly thinner than a Hope skewer. However keeping with the Mavic QR skewer I found that tightening up the QR so it was an effort to push the lever over took the play out.
In summary… crap QR adapters and skewer results in play.Posted 4 years agopoahMember
sorry to drag this up – I’ve just fitted a set of crosstrails to my ghost. First time just going round the block no issues but 4 days later I’m getting a clicking noise when I push hard on the pedals (fine if I just cruise about) its a clicking noise I’m getting is this down to the crap QR adptors? changing skewer made no difference.Posted 4 years agocolin9Subscriber
I’ve got some new 2009 Crosstrails (lying around the LBS for a couple of years) with QR and also noticed the rear wheel working loose during rides. I replaced the Mavic skewer with a Hope one and it seems to have solved the problem – for the moment anyway. I think the suspected play in the axle was actually the skewer loosening.Posted 4 years ago
