Well buddy, that you will come to know only after removing the wheel from the hub. May be because of the hand brake or rust etc etc...

Was the hand brake engaged for the last few months when it was lying idle?

Hi,

Nothing to worry about. Its a very minor problem. Get both the wheels/brakes serviced and you will be fine.

second Vipers opinion. it must be jamed due to rust of something. I was once told to free parts off, pour some kerosene onto it. helps free stuff. take off the wheel and get a mech to check it out, keep some kerosene handy!

you may not believe this, but a turkish fitter at sea once told me that cola (the same infamous brand which supposedly dissolves teeth dopped into it!) works as a good alternative to penetrating oil (WD-40 etc) , have tried it once- and seemed to work!

though mind you, i wouldnt recommend it on your wheels! would have to rinse off the stick residue for sure!
