I'm personally fine with the rattling as long as Logitech is. I live in US and have a big house . My primary concern was for safety of wheel. I find Tim's comment about Logitech wheels being designed to prevent harm very helpful if true. Not sure why it takes 20 pages to mention this. Tim, not that you owe it to us, but do you happen to know where that fact is documented? I believe this may help calm at least some of the noise (no pun). Thanks.
