Rear Wheel locked up
#1
hi i have a 2008 mongoose fireball, with jalco ddz wheels, running on promax hubs. My rear wheel has completely frozen, and wont spin backwards, + the lockring has come off and some bearings have come out, i know it wont function without some bearings, but it should at least be able to turn. anyone know how to go about fixing this? cheers.

Don't know what lockring you mean. But if bearings are falling out, you need to open up the axle and see what's going on. It could be a bearing shattered and jammed in there. But guessing won't help much. Open it up...
