I bought a bicycle today, but the Sturmey-Archer Dynohub is totally seized. The sprocket won't move at all, and it won't freewheel. The toggle chain won't move either, although it can be unscrewed. What could have caused this, and how can I fix it?

Ahhh! The old Sturmey-Archer, makes you proud to be British. I expect that there are years of accumulated detritus lurking in the sprocket - (bits of old teacake, cucumber sandwich crusts etc). Take it down to the Trumpton repair shop double-quick, Mr Miggins will fix it up and no mistake!
Tip top!
