    freewheel problem??

    My element 950 has been rock solid, from the very beginning I had this issue.

    When in stand, I turn rear wheel, when in normal riding direction it functions normal. Freewheeling as advertised

    Now when I turn the wheel backwards it engages and the pedals turn with it.

    It doesn't effect the riding of the bike at all.

    How big of a problem is this. I still have warranty on bike. Only problem is that the shop I bought it from went out of business.

    Is this something I can fix myself. If so what tools do I need.

    Thanks for help.

    All freehubs do that, if you rotate the wheel backwards the pedals spin backwards.

    Cool thanks, to remove cassette, do I need anything else besides a chain whip?

    chainwhip and the lockring wrench is all you need to remove the cassette. .

    Just take a look at the freehub on that wheel closely, the stock DT swiss wheels had an issue with the freehubs cracking. RMB will take care of you though, it's a known issue.
