hi guys was looking for some advice and what to do with this hub I recently bought 2nd hand its an older demoltion rouge anyways I'm pretty sure the driver and hub need to be greased up. When I pedal fast and take feet off pedals the wheel spins my cranks and when I push cranks backwards it spins wheel backwards slightly. Great for fakies but I assume that its not running right and hoping it just needs a greasing. If that does happen to be my problem I don't have much experience with greasing drivers got a pretty good idea of what I have to do but is there anything I should know before I get to work?

Thanks in advance

It's a good place to start.

Take it apart and clean it and then use a nice light Oil (like a chain oil), not grease on the inside. You don't need a ton of it in there either. Grease tends to gum up the pawls in cassette hubs and can cause the types of problems you are having.

Good luck!

Only if they are exactly the same size where the pawls are and have the same amount of pawls etc.

Also check to see if you chain is UBER-TIGHT. If it is, try to loosen it slightly. I try to have a 1/4 inch of wiggle when my wheel is tight if I grab the chain by hand to make sure it isn't too tight.

Clean and lube your chain too.
