Guys, I'm trying to reinstall my rear wheel and ran into a problem.
When I torque it to as recommended,the wheel doesn't move freely at all. It gets really tight. Took it off again,checked everything and looks like everything that needs to be there,is there.
Any ideas?
Thanx in advance!

It is the stock wheel,just got powder coated and yes ,new bearings. The bike has only 436 miles too.
It is impossible to move it by hand at all.

If you cant turn your wheel at all, then there is something wrong. I think when I installed my new wheels, I was only able to move my rear wheel if I used both hands to turn it. Mine was very tight. But I'm abnormally strong too. You should be able to move your wheel a little.

Chances are Lazlo, you do not have the wheel mated to the hub correctly. When you put the wheel on, before tightening the wheel up, put the bike in gear. You will be able to tell if the wheel is mated correctly, because it won't spin. If it is in gear and it spins like it is in neutral, then it is not mated right.
