    Yeah the grease has siezed.

    Try the WD40 down by the spokes and also on the other side where lockring tightens...

    If it looks like it wont go nowhere buy a new feehub.

    Easy to fit - take cones and axle out of hub and get an 8 or 10mm allen key and unscrew anti-clockwise REPLACE and fit reverse of the above.

  4. The first time I put a new cassette on, I gave up and took the wheel and the the old cassette to a lbs their vice removed it in seconds, no charge ;). The second and third time they came off a bit easier after WD-40.
