    HELP: Free Hub Flub...slack when coasting

    Hi. I took apart the free hub body of my Spinergy wheel, to clean and grease the bearings. I put the wheel back together. Now, when I ride, it is fine as long as I am pedaling, but lots of slack in the chain when I coast. I would think this is a minor adjustment etc. Any idea what to do. I don't want to take it apart until I hear from you. No sense have crud strung all over! Thanks!

    The grease will thin out in time. On my shimano freehubs I replaced the spring on the pawls with one I made from heavier piano wire. Even then there is a little slack in the chain until the excess works it's way out. I lube my freehubs using a freehub buddy made by Morning Star tools.
