Default Re: new install...big problems

Did you over tighten the cones? That would cause the wheel to lock. If the wheel doesn't turn on the axle then it must be something with the bearings/brake shoes. Ideally you should tighten the cones with a cone wrench until the wheel rotates freely but the axle has no "wiggle". Then holding the cone in place with the cone wrench tighten the lock nut down to keep it from moving.
If it can't be broken I'll find a way!


I'm not lost, I'm exploring!
