I took my bike out this morning and my freehub was not engaging – turn pedals/chain and nothing is transferred to the rear wheel. My guess is that the pawls are frozen and are not engaging.
I cleaned the chain on Sunday and today was the first ride since the cleaning. I used hot water to rinse the chain. I did have the bike in the basement for an hour or two, but put back in the garage after lubing the chain.
I have the bike in the basement again now… Will letting the bike warm up and dry out resolve the issue? Or do I need to clean and re-lube the freehub? I don’t think I have the tools I need to clean the freehub…
