Hub or wheel Maintenance questions
I have about 5,000 miles on a Bontrager Race Lite set of wheels. While the bike is on a rack, I spin the rear wheel and it doesn't seem to turn as easily as it did 2yrs ago. While riding the bike,the rachet (sort of sounds like a fishing pole when you real in the line) sounds louder also.
Is this a sign of worn bearings, FreeWheel, axial? What sort of repair does it need to turn better?
EDITED: OPPS I forgot to mention that the mechanic noticed that the spokes need tightening. Is that a factor?
