Tonight assembled the wheel together, everything looks good and spins nicely when in my hands. And freehub barely moves when QR is locked.

The cylindrical spacer is present. The advantage to mechanical hubs is that they are often considered more robust, and less prone to issues due to maintenance negligence. Mechanically activated locking hubs are activated by hand by turning a switch on the end of the axle.

The hub is a component where the wheel is directly mounted to, and is outside the axle. Also the freehub does not rotate as well.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Looking on this image: Bering installation on DT Rear Hub — does not spin under load.

There should be almost no gap between freehub and hub body. And that is in place. As soon as I release the quick release — no friction and wheel spins forever, even with freehub clicking. How would I check if the seal is recessed? Could it be due to the new bearings? For reference, schematics are here: Thus suggesting it is not just bearings — something else is creating friction on freehub. The main advantage is that the driver does not need to leave the vehicle to connect the wheels to the axle.


Nonk confirms the same issue.

I suspect it is the bearings indeed. Got them into bike frame, pulled tight the quick release and the wheel does not really spin anymore. Other benefits also include keeping the front-differential free from unnecessary wear, quieter operation, less vibration, and lower wear in other drive line components.

Yep, checked that — all the spacers are there. The disadvantage with this system is that most designs require the vehicle to move some distance usually a whole wheel turn, often going backwards after engaging the hubs in order for the hubs to engage or disengage.
