    New ENO freewheel is sticky.

    Does it just need to break in? There's a lot of resistance when I try to freewheel it with just the freewheel itself and when it's on the wheel. Are there some seals to break in and grease to distribute inside by riding a bit?

    I haven't even ridden it yet.

    Thanks.
    It's only weird because it's not normal.

    Yes, just needs to break in. Give it time and it will spin until the cows come home.

    I'm glad you asked that, I put mine in 2 days ago and it is doing the same thing, I thought it was messed up or something.
