Generic Ares freecoaster
« on: February 22, 2021, 01:14:14 PM »
My rear wheel did not spin real well and felt crunchy. I took the rear hub apart and I was shocked by the amount of grease inside. Does the amount of grease have a function other than to displace dirt/water? Does there need to be a layer of grease on the ID of the hub shell to drag on the OD of the clutch?


I'll be putting this back together soon, but I suspect that the bearing cones were too tight. I didn't find any dirt or otherwise to indicate the poor spinning.
