    The freewheel mechanism is failing. This is often due to the grease in the mechanism getting too sticky, and sometimes spraying the innards with WD40 or some such will fix it. Sometimes it must be disassembled to one degree or another. And sometimes it's cheaper to just replace the wheel. – Daniel R Hicks Jul 2 at 21:09
  • Hi Daniel, thanks for the advice. The hub itself is rotating both ways. So do I need to replace the hub itself? – Aniket Pawashe Jul 3 at 4:47
  • Coz the repair said the hub needs to be replaced. – Aniket Pawashe Jul 3 at 4:55
  • Note that if you must replace the hub it's usually cheaper to replace the entire wheel. – Daniel R Hicks Jul 3 at 11:35
