Probably a dumb question; I just recently swapped a new tire out for a paddle tire I am also changing the whole drive train (sprockets & chain). I haven't as of yet put the sprockets or chain
back on, so the rear wheel is on now and won't spin very easily.
Is this b/c I am missing the drive components or have I misaligned the fitting of the rear wheel into the brake and guard.
I will soon know if this is the case, just curious if I could find out here quickly.

Thanks

I would check the spacers adn the rear wheel bearings. also check out the mud flap.
The short one goes on the right side i thinK!!!!!

If the rear wheel bearings are a little loose now they really will be after those sandy rides. if the back tire wobbles from side to side somethings loose
have fun and heres some good luck 4those bearigns

Your right. It wont spin easily anymore b/c you've put the tire back on wrong. You must have it mis-aligned. It's definately not the missing chain. That would make it easier to spin. It's b/c the wheel is on "crooked" and the rotor is dragging on one of the two brake pads.
