if it's drag like metal friction, then something is wrong. There will be some drag due to bearing seals, but that's all there should be.
Yes, any bare hub will feel surprisingly draggy in your hand. The momentum of the wheel does change it a lot, and even more so when you are riding and coasting with even more momentum.traffic002 said:So I just got my new rear hub. I was playing around with the engagement points (gonna go from 16 to 48 ) Interesting sounds it makes.
But when I held the hub by the spindle (as if it were on a frame), I found the rotation of the hub to have a lot of drag? Is this just because I don't have the rotation mass of a wheel?
Is this typical? Does it need to be broken in? Should I take it apart and regrease before using?
Please help out a newb. I'm a good rider. But new to wrenching my bike.
Dish is even. Tension is just about right. Radial true is very good. There was a hair lateral that I just didn't get as good as I thought I could.thefuzzbl said:rushing the wheels might not be a good idea, wheels arnt very strong unless they are tensioned correctly and true and all that...
Wish they weren't so fawkin noisy.... :crazy:Juanmoretime said::thumbsup: for Hope Pro 2 single speed hub. If you don't like the noise pedal.
I rebuilt the wheel with the stock WTB Laserdisc Trail and spokes. I used new nipples.nicolicious said:what did you end up building them up with?>>???
