I have recently had to replace my rear hub, and having now put everything back together and on the bike, it doesn't feel right. There is much to much friction, as if the brake is always on whenever I am peddling.
Is this normal? Do the bearings just need time to bed in and adjust themselves to run smoothly or is there something wrong with the wheel... Having never rebuilt a entire wheel before I have nothing to compare it to, and the old hub was so old it just ran and ran forever.
Any help is much appreciated,
