    free wheel is not free

    I am running a 1x10 setup on my scott scale 29er. when i shift into my smallest cog (11t) the freewheels wont ratchet forcing me to pedal like a fixie or have the chain wrap up. Anybody know what might cause this or how to fix it?

    Dirt and grime in with the pawls. Easy to take off and clean. Go to you tube and search for your hub freewheel service. Very easy to fix.
    My name is Chris and I ride a Prophet 650b with a Lefty.

    You may have pulled the FH body away from the hub when the chain dropped.

    Pull the wheel, service and re-seat the FH.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
