I just replaced a Fulcrum racing 5 LG free hub. Once it was all together, it seems a bit tight. With the bike on the stand, when I spin the pedals, and release, the pedals continue to rotate. So the free hub is not spinning as freely as I would expect.
I did not disassemble the entire axle and hub; I just removed the worn free hub from the drive side, and replaced it with a new free hub. So, no changes, other than the free hub itself.
Will it loosen up? Is this related to the pre-load on the non-drive side of the axle? Anyone have any experience with this?
