What is wrong with this picture?
Does anything strike you as being wrong with any of the mechanical do-dads on Praline? I watched videos, looked at diagrams, and watched a former bike mechanic that just so happens to play drums at my church reassemble my back wheel. I thought I had done it correctly the second time (the first time I either had a defective tube or I pinched it when I was trying to re-insert it). Now the back wheel doesn't turn correctly- it's stiff and the pedals don't turn with it when it moves. Are those nuts on the outside supposed to be fairly tight? Do I need to degrease something? Please share any ideas you have. Otherwise, I'll just have to wait until Sunday and even then I don't know if he'll be free to help me because there is an anniversary event for the organist some time after the service.
I have nothing against walking, but I would like to have my bike back.
