Is the wheel in the bike?

When you apply the quick release clamp it does apply some pressure on the hub, sometimes the hub is left just a little loose so when the QR clamp is applied the slack is taken up....?

In the frame?

Where did you buy it?

If a shop, I'd take it back and say "WTF"...?

Maybe someone who knows more will chime in :D
