As the title says, I'm having issues with my freecoaster. I should preface this by saying I'm a pretty good bike mechanic with a fairly good understanding of how things work, before I get the idiot treatment. Anyways, I was re greasing my hub and went to tighten the cones, I gave it a slight (and I mean slight) tightening on the drive side with a spanner, and heard a couple clicks so I loosened it back and did it up hand tight. Since then I have had constant issues with ghost pedaling, both backwards and forwards. I can also feel a resistance in the wheel when I spin it, sort of like the bearings are dictating the speed of the wheel. I've tried all sorts of different setups in terms of cone tightness, and the bearings all seem fine when inspected. I've even tried holding the cones with a spanner as I tighten the axle nuts, which was suggested on a similar thread on here, all to no avail. I've emailed Cult with no reply, and there isn't much help online either. Just hoping one of you guys has had this issue, or at least knows what it could be.

Had one too way too much maintenance and bearing are hard to get run a colony now with normal sealed bearing much easier to work on and is a lot smoother just my 2 cents I literally threw the wheel away because the cult hub sucked so bad but others have had good luck with them
