Problem with Mallard freehub?
I was oiling the chain on one of my Raleighs and noticed the rear wheel didn't freewheel at first. When I turned the pedals and the wheel turned. When I stopped so did the wheel.
I oiled the hub- just to try something, and it freed up some. Then I noticed that while the real wheel was turning the cassette moved up and down instead of just spinning.
From some reading it seems as if the Mallard hubs used nylon bearings. Are these hard to find?
If I should just replace the hub, freehub and cassette what would be a good choice? I won't be racing this Technium so I don't really want to spend hundreds to fix it.
