Have a very urgent question for you all. I'm building up a new bike to race on sunday and after spending an hour or 3 to put it all together, I take it outside to see how it goes and... it doesn't. For some dark reason, during my first pedal stroke, the rear wheel just locked up. I explain:
The wheel spins perfectly in the freewheeling mode, in the other direction though, it's very hard to turn the wheel. I took the chain off but that does not made a difference so it's without doubt coming from the wheel. It's like the bearings get locked up when I tighten the qr release. Does anyone know what could be going on? Can someone explain how the wheel works and how I can take it apart. I know shimano hubs with cones and ball bearings but don't see what is going on here.
All help is welcome, I wanna go ride that damn bike.
Oh, wheels are brand new, have not rolled a meter, literally!
