Simple as that - bike won't ride
#1
I'm new to this forum. Anyway, I recently bought a new road bike which was semi-assembled. Now after I fully assembled it, I noticed (duh..) that when I'm moving pedals forward (as if riding), they would not move my bike at all. I can move the pedals with no problems. What that might be? Thanks in advance.

If the chain is engaged with the rear gear cluster and those gear can spin forward without pushing the rear wheel forward, you have a faulty freewheel/freehub. Contact the seller about warranty.
