Question about Mongoose Cycling
It sounds as though the chain is too tight. Check to see when it is "freewheeled" if the chain gets tighter. Generally this will happen because the chain ring (front sprocket) was not perfectly aligned with the "spider" (thing it bolts to). You can loosen the chain a little and see if this helps. Be careful because you don't want it so loose the it comes off while riding. What I usually do is adjust the tension of the chain with the sprocket in the tight spot. Kind of tight but without the "grinding" feeling.
