Noise and sticking from rear wheel.

Giant OCR1
I have pulled the wheel off and found it not to be in the axle but in the cog set. I have sprayed it out and still no luck.
What is gone bad, and how much am I looking at?
I was going to take it to the LBS if I could not do it myself.

I expect that you'll find is that it's freehub related. But before you do anything, remove the cassette and check the area between the hub and freehub body. Often road debris - string, wire, twigs, etc. - gets caught up by the spokes and wound down into the space behind the cassette binding the hub and freehub together.

If it is the freehub, service depends on the hub. Some have a self-contained freehub module bolted to the hub shell, while others support the freehub and hub independently on the axle, and connected only by the ratchet drive. The latter can be easier to service, but for either you often need to replace the freehub body.
