    I have a freewheeling hub in my back wheel, now while riding under throttle my right side chain is getting dragged around as well. This is getting worse, it's like something is dragging in the hub and pulling the right side sprocket around.

    Anybody have any clues on what's causing this (vaguely described :) ) problem?

    I had a similar thing happen on one of my bikes. On mine the freewheel kept getting tighter and tighter, untill it finally froze. This forced me to pedal with the engine to keep the bike chain from wrapping up.

    The solution for me was a new rear free wheel.

    Hope this helps

    I hope not, it's a brand new hub with less than 70k's on it!

    Will make a trip to the bike shop on the weekend.
