    Hi darren

    When the wheel is locked up, try to remove the caliper and see if it’s that one whos locking it or the wheel bearing.

    Check that the brake line hose is not twisted and the piston in the caliper is OK!

    Hope that helps you 🙂

    The brake could be locket up from either:
    Pressure inside brake fluid
    Piston inside the caliper is sluggish

    When the fault occurs try to unskrew the air nipple. If the brake is releasing then you should look for:
    A faulty/twisted Brake line hose
    Faulty Brake line
    Faulty ABS
    Faulty master brake cylinder
