It's my first post on this community, as I'm a completely new owner of IGH bike. It's a city bike with Nexus-8 coaster brake SG-8C20. I bought it used and, as I never previously had IGH, I have two questions to you. First concerns shifting from 4 to 5 - it's almost impossible under heavy pedaling. I have to decrease pedaling force to be able to shift from 4 to 5 - is it right? Second doubt concerns gears 2,3 and 4. When I'm riding on one of these gears, then stop pedaling for some (even short) time and then start pedaling again there is about one full (or even more) turn of pedals without engaged clutch. It's completely free turn, what is very irritating if I forgot about it and try to pedal with full force. Is it right or something is broken inside?? Besides hub is working fine and I very like it. I'm planning to disassemble it, completely degrease and bathe in 85W-140 (maybe even more viscous if I can buy it) transmission oil, what should reduce internal friction a bit.
P.S. Sorry for my english. I hope you'll be able to understand it.
