Try removing some grease. Did you put in so much that it may be getting in between the hub and axle? I don't think it would be a problem unless most of the gap was full.
FWIW. I think that I've got a picture of what is-or-isn't going on, now ...lectraplayer said:I guess I need to clarify that afleng. I have three bikes I'm working with, a full suspension "silver" bike, and two nonsuspension bikes, in black and red. I can swap parts between all three, but regardless of the parts I have on each bike, the red frame always feels, and GPSs much slower. I've moved cranks, wheels, and derailers. I may have to get full measurements this evening, though the few frame measurements i have gotten, namely centerline of the seat stay (excluding the seatpost) to the centerline of the head tube (not counting the handlebars, fork, and related) is the same for all three bikes.
Can it be you used a crank with shorter arms?lectraplayer said:It also feels like the crank is way back behind me, though it's in the same place as my other bikes. Even "stand and stomp" doesn't give me the speed it does on my other bikes, while being harder.
Did you measure the angles of the frames? One could have a steeper seat tube and the fit could be wrong for you.lectraplayer said:It also feels like the crank is way back behind me, though it's in the same place as my other bikes.
You could have mixed up the cranks when they were out of the bikes. I doubt one piece cranks look that distinctive. A shorter crank may make a bike feel like its bottom bracket is further back. I am also wondering if you really counted the teeth on the chainring.lectraplayer said:How can I shorten the arms of a crank when I move it between bikes? I doubt I did.
