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!

Are you installing a new wheel with new bearings?

If you are, it will be hard to move ie.... you can move with your hand using a little force, but it wont move freely

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.

Then yes, it will be hard to move. As long as your can turn your wheel. Your bearings will losen up alittle after you go for a ride. Go for a ride, then come home and see if it changes.

If your bike is on a stand, and your bike is in neutral, you should be able to move your wheel a little.

How much force does it take to move your wheel?

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.

Double-check to make sure the hub splines are mated properly. If they aren't interlocked correctly, there'll be tension when you tighten everything down.

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.
