I was riding yesterday, and heard noises that sound like they were coming from the spokes. i got off my bike, and it felt like something was seriously rubbing the back wheel. when i removed the wheel, i realized that the cassette could hardly rotate by hand. Where do i start?
and what can i do?

Thank you
Sounds like you need...Nater

freehub maintenance or cleaning. On Shimano hubs, it's usually most economical to replace the free hub body with a new one. I'm not sure about Campy stuff but it's usually more servicable than Shimano. I'd take it your LBS and have them figure out if it can be cleaned/flushed or if it needs replacing.
Check the lock ring?McAndrus

I've had it happen to me where the lock ring worked itself loose and got wedged into the fork dropout. If that's it, just tighten in back up - into the cassette.
