<HTML>1: Any suggestions why the friction pads would transmit movement to the rear wheel only when there is no load? When the bike is on it's stand, the rear wheel spins.
When on the ground, it doesn't move. The pads and the metal contact surface have been degreased.
2: Also, what is the thickness of the friction pads when new?
I replaced the originals by glueing bits of auto brake pads in their place.
Any opinions about this fix?
