Speed Uno: Resistance (from coaster brake?) while pedaling?
I've had a Speed Uno for about a year now, and starting about 6 months ago, and then intermittently starting today after a few weeks of using it again, I'm getting a lot of resistance while pedaling (as in, more than usual ).
I don't know much about the design involved in coaster brakes, but it feels to me like maybe the brake is pressing down while I pedal forward, instead of only when pressing back on the pedals. First of all, is this mechanically possible, or is it a sign of something even worse happening?
And secondly, anything that I can do to fix it if it is the case?
Take it apart, clean it and adjust it. In other words maintenance. Coaster brake hubs like all bicycle hubs require maintenance. Kind of like a tune up for your car. Roger
