Friction when spinning cassette (probably simple)
I am doing some mid-winter cleaning today. I took the chain off and I was cleaning off the cassette with a rag when I noticed some friction while spinning the cassette past a certain point. That is, it spun freely for about 80% of its rotation, but had some trouble in the other 20%.
I'm guessing this is a silly question, but do I need to take off the cassette and do a thorough cleaning of the cassette / freehub?
