Sounds like a freehub/cassette issue.

So the chain will spin right round, moving the cassette and still the wheel doesn't move?

If thats the case, your freehub is shot

If you are a bit of a spanner monkey you can do it yourself, with the tools, here’s a link for you all about them.

http://sheldonbrown.com/freewheels.html

Failing that there will be videos on youtube showing you how to do it or your LBS mechanic will sort it for a fee. The freewheels themselves are relatively inexpensive.

Good luck

Yeah it should be an easy fix for a bike shop and the link above while help you decide if you could do it yourself. It could be something really simple or it could be the whole hub/freehub connection.

I'd pop along to a bike shop, even though I can take a bike to bits and rebuild it. I'd let them do it Wink
