    Front wheel groaning after damp ride

    Came back from a damp road ride. Front wheel is now groaning at low walking speed. Diagnosed that is not the brakes. I even detach the brake calipers. Still groans. Removed the wheel, re-grease the skewer. No difference. Help!

    first you need to know what brand, model, and style of hub you have.

    Well, brand and model should do the trick...if you knew the type you probably wouldn't be asking.
