    Sounds like your freewheel mechanism is stuck or broken. If you lift the bike off the ground and hold the cogs in the rear in place, can you spin the rear wheel? Some freewheel mechanisms can be opened and serviced.

    If the derailleur was stuck as well, I'm guessing the bike is rather neglected. It might be wise to get it thoroughly serviced

  • I have only had the bike for about 3 to 4 months. It started happening after it got heavily rained on last week. So i am thinking its stuck. Cause it unsticks from time to time. then catches again.
