Bikes: The two wheeled variety.
I have a set of the Bontrager Race Lite TLR Disc 29 wheels and when I move the rear wheel the chain and pedals advance like it was a fixed gear. When I hold the pedals still (which takes almost no effort) I can hear the freehub ratchet as normal. I know this is not normal because it does not happen on any of my other bikes.
What can I do to fix this problem? My guess would be to remove the freehub from the wheel and lubricate the inside parts with a light oil. I have never taken a freehub off and I hear there are lots of small parts. Can any mechanics confirm or set me straight?
