Hub problem?
#1
Hello, I've been having trouble with my hub that i've just noticed, and is the cause of me not landing my tail whips. My hubs are We The People. If I do a footjam tailwhip my pedals will keep moving until a certain point, THEN my hub starts going.
It's hard to explain so basically at a certain point my hubs suddenly start but if it's not in that point it keeps spinning like I'm riding it.

Are my cranks to heavy? Or do I need a new hub?

Hi xSt. Welcome to BT!
From what I read, that you wrote, your WTP _R_E_A_R hub?
It's probably more likely that it is the freewheel itself.
Can you elaborate?
