Any reason for this?

This issue bugs me because its harder to pedal due to the wheel just stopping on its own rather then spinning freely.


Would it be that the hubs the came on my bike are ****ty? would aftermarket hubs help this situation?

bike is a 07 Iron Horse Maverick.


Thanks guys...I've tried to search but couldn't find much
you may want to put this thread in "bike mechanics", but it sounds like too much preload on the bearings. try loosening up your bearings slightly and see if that works.

You should take the disc off just to be sure its not it. When tightening the CR it can move the disc a bit. Somtimes the least likley things are the things messing it up.

Thats all the help I can give.

A tight quick release (the way they're supposed to be!) does tighten up the hubs a little. Sounds like that's what you're seeing.
