    Roval Control SL -- Crank rotate when the free wheel is engaged

    hi everone,

    I notice something recently.

    when I let my rear wheel turn at high speed with my free wheel engaged, my crank begin to spin also.

    I have a roval control sl with DT hub system.

    I clean and I try to grease the ratchet with the red DT grease but nothing change.

    I'd like to know if someone has the same problem.

    Maybe I grease too much the ratchet?

    Also I use recently a new grease for my bearings, the finish line fluoro.

    My bottom bracket is much better with this grease. maybe it's a reason?

    thanks for your help.

    A lot of grease can certainly add friction inside the freehub, but when you stop the crank the chain does not bunch up so I wouldn't worry about it.

    Yeah I wouldn't worry about it, no major issues going on

    I try to have a look and I struggle a lot to remove the spacer inside the hub.
    maybe the spacer has a problem and the ratchets don't do their work correctly.

    That spacer comes out on me every time I pull the cassette to service. I do notice that to much grease will cause the pedals to turn when freewheeling in the bike stand.
