I bought a used Kelly's Swag 10 2016 and it came with KLS (Kelly's inhouse wheels rebranding).
The rear hub was not allowing to back pedal freely. When backpedaling, or trying to set the pedals in a comfortable position to start from a stop, the cassette was not spinning backwards following the pedals, making the chain drop onto the chain stay all the time.
This is the assembly:
I went down and disassemble it, cleaned everything, re-greased the ball bearings and put everything back together. No matter how much I tight 1 against 2, and 3 against 4, leaving no room for the hub bearings to have any play (but still 100% free to move both directions) they become loose again and the issue comes back.
Note that, as far as I know, the numbered parts should not spin once the wheel is mounted. However, when the issue does happen, the they seem to spin on the axle as well, along with the wheel.
So here are the questions:
- How do I tighten the assembly so the nuts don't spin with the wheel and become loose?
- Is the assembly missing any washers or pieces that could potentially be causing the nuts to rub onto the frame creating the extra friction to loosen them?
- What's the proper name for this assembly and can I get spare parts for it? can I do it without having to change the hub itself and rebuild the wheel?
- Is it possible to replace it with sealed bearings? that would make it a lot easier to maintain.
Thanks a lot!
