Default Put rear wheel back on - feels "bindy"?

I replaced my tires and checked my chain and sprockets. I put everything back on - no extra pieces, but it feels likes it's sluggish. Maybe the front chain guide? Is there a way to tell if the bike is binding somewhere?

Thanks,

The axle spacers are different for each side, so make sure you have them on the correct side. One of them has an almost invisible letter "R" stamped on it-put in on the rotor side of the hub. Ask me how I found this out...

Figured it out. Forgot to add the right spacer. Thanks GB, it just took you to say that to make me use my head for something than holding up a helmet.

Cheers!
