Alright so it's been 3 days since I got my windsor hour and I've put on about 20 miles. Just like TT said I had problems with the lockring. I haven't gone out and bought a lock ring tool yet, but it's first on my list of things to buy. Anyway, I was practicing skidding on the bike when suddenly the bike's cranks felt like they were spinning independently from the rear wheel. This happened for like a split second and usually occurred after I had attempted a skid and while i was first pedaling to start moving again. After this happened twice i took a look at the rear hub and noticed that the lock ring was loose. I used the end of an allen key to push it tight, but I didn't end up putting it too tight for fear of stripping it.
My question is whether or not the lock ring being loose and the crank problem are directly related. And of course what steps should I take to fix it.
