Does anyone know why it takes my freemix to engage after two full cranks it randomly started doing it?

My friend's Freemix did this, he never got to fixing it and just bought a new one, so I don't know exactly what the problem was, but I assume it's something with the disengagement system in the hub. Maybe just disassemble and rebuild?

Mine was doing this. It was because I had tightened my non drive side nut too much before tightening my drive side, causing the axle to sit off a little bit. It could also be the ball springs on the axle.

I recommend taking everything apart, thoroughly cleaning every piece, and then put a whole bunch of grease on it all. Tighten the driveside nut first when putting it back together.

A while back when KHE dropped their first freecoaster, the KHE reverse i think, i bought it and it was doing the same thing. I found out that it was becuase i had tightened one of my axle nuts to tight or in the wrong order. It was also engaging at weird times while in fakie. I never did get used to the lag when engaging so i just when back to a cassette, plus i mostly ride trails. But anyway, hope this helps.

I hope mine doesn't do this. It's only 2 weeks old. I know they need maintenance, but I hate taking my wheels off my bike, so....
