Ksyrium freewheel turns crank ( when pushing bike) fix??noupi

when bike is on stand if i spin the crank 20/30km/h and let it go the crank continues to spin and if you stop it you feel the force from the free wheel.
These are new TDF Sls 300 miles.
Can this become a problem (dangerous) ?
No problem...just tight sealsspookyload

Mine did the same thing for about 700 miles. The seals loosened and it quit doing it. I called Mavic tech about this very thing. Dont sweat it.

Probably due to the newness. If it continues to pose a problem remove the free wheel body , clean it out, apply a few drops of 80-90wt gear oil (just enough to lightly coat the surface and pawls), and very lightly coat the white plastic gliding ring as well.

To remove the hub body insert allen wrenches in the opposing sides of the axle and loosen. Slowly lift the body off while making sure the pawls don't fly out by wrapped your fingers around the hub where free wheel body seats against it.
Thanks !!noupi
