My kreitler rollers have wobbled very slightly since the day they were new. Four years and several
hundred hours of use later, the wobble seems about the same. I'd take care about tightening those
nuts too much. I seem to recall stern warnings in my literature that came with the rollers that
over-tightening the nuts would damage the bearings and void the warranty.
If I'm not mistaken, the bearings in each roller are cartridge bearings -- virtually identical to
what's in many wheels these days. You'll notice that there's a small amount of play in those wheels
even when they're clamped in good.
I believe that little bit of play is just one of the things you get with cartridge bearings. It's
no big deal.
