This is a question for anyone who has had some experience with high end wheels.
I recently installed a pair of Roval CLX 50 wheels to my tarmac all went fine pretty straight forward procedure. They are amazing, the only strange thing about them is the free hub is silent… !?
My one concern and this is where I am wondering what other peoples experience is… The spin down on the rear wheel doesn’t seem quite as free as the front. It feels as though there is a some amount of drag somewhere in the hub to the point where they push the cranks forward if I wind them up and let them go and or spin the cranks backwards stationary… Is this normal or have I missed something.
It doesn’t feel as though anything is excessively tight in terms of the cassette or the skewer I even slightly backed that off just to see the effect it had…
At the end of the day if this is causing me to lose watts to the drivetrain free hub system I need to rectify it somehow. Any Roval users out there with some thoughts or input would be great.
