Yesterday I experienced something weird when riding.

When riding on a fast descent, at roughly 75-80 km/h, I felt the bike slowing down, just like if the brakes were on.

Checked for the latter, nothing, brake pads weren't touching anything.

At the bottom of the descent, when the speed came down to 35-40 km/h, everything back to normal :noidea: ...

I checked for bearing "feel" by rolling them in my hands, they are smooth as butter. DtSwiss 240S rear and Alchemy ELF front.

The hubs have approximately 10 000 km, never touched them yet.

Could it be the vibration ( from speed) that caused friction in the bearings ?
Should I overhaul the bearings ( hubs and freehub) even if they still "feel" like butter smooth ?

scratching my head...thanks for the heads up !!

Louis :)
