My boss crashed his bike this morning. By his description, he bumped over a kerb and then the back wheel locked up, and still is.

I haven't seen the thing, doesn't sound like brakes does it? Any idea what pokery you could do with the hub mechanism to get it going again?

I once locked up the back wheel of my single speed after not locking the bearing nut properly; the bearing race screwed itself into the hub and locked then wheel completely. Suppose it /could/ be that?
