Resistance/friction on both wheels. Please Help!
So I just bought a brand new set of tires, front and back and got the new rubber put on the wheels, replaced the brake pads and put the wheels back on. Note; this is the first time I've done this, it's my first bike but i've been doing all the work it needed myself, at least what i can. Anyways Now that I have the wheels put on both wheels feel like they have a ton of resistance. The front wheel seems a bit more simple then the rear, it looks like the brake pads are rubbing. My main concern is the rear wheel, I can put the rear wheel up on my stand put the bike in first and release the clutch and it will move, but the second i disengage the clutch the wheel comes to a stop in less than one full rotation. I don't have a service manual yet so Im not 100% on the torque specs required but everything ive looked up says 80 ft lbs for the rear axle nut and for the rear wheel to spin freely i have to torque it to 40 ft lbs. Does anyone knw how to deal with this?
Every step I take to improve myself, improves my vision and my goal ends up being two more steps away.
