Rear Wheel Rolling Resistance

Recommended Posts

I recently receive my Fold X and love it but don't know what's normal at this point.  I've noticed that if I lift the rear tire off the ground and spin it by hand, it has a fair amount of resistance and quickly slows and stops.  The front tire spins freely for quite some time.  I assume that the real wheel motor is the reason for that resistance.  It is very noticeable when pedaling with no assist and would actually be difficult to go for any distance without the assist turned on.  Being new at this I just don't know what's normal.

Thanks for any insight.
