Seized!
« on: May 06, 2014, 02:13:09 AM »
Just posted my intro and remembered I forgot to mention that either my front caliper piston or the hub bearing is locked up, not completely but to the point where it's pretty fricken tough to move the front wheel, let alone the whole bike. Like I said in my intro, the bike had sat for a long time, any idea which would be more likely?

Take the caliper off and see if the wheel spins freely. If not it's the bearings. If it does then you'll need to rebuild the caliper.
