I believe you add a touch of oil to stop this but I have forgotten exactly where? Anyone thanks JB

Yes, a drop between the back side of the sprocket and the hub seal is the location.

However, it may not completely address the problem and can attract dust.

Best,

Dan.

Humm. Is it a bad thing to see them turn?
I like to see mine turn but I use a Chainglider.
Turning equals no drag from the glider.
Never drink and drive. You may hit a bump  and spill your drink

Rather not have the dust. I don't see the harm in pedals turning on their own when the bike is pushed.

The only problem with the pedals turning is when you have to walk your bike, such as when wheeling it into a hotel room, through a market place or (even worse) up some steep rough stuff.  Every now and then you get a smack on the back of your leg from the revolving pedals.

My Raven's pedals turn without being prompted only when I reverse the bike.

Please tell me, doctor, that my bike isn't backward.

It can catches my right shin which has a skin and bone graft. It hasn't up to now so probably worrying about nothing.
