I purchased one used a few months ago, he said he never really used it and it looks brand new, this weekend I had a blow out, tires are like brand new, I must have hit something in the road???? Question is, the hubs were very warm, is that normal ? and when I free spin the wheels they only turn a few times, I am thinking the brakes are not fully dis engaging ???

Look between the treads of the tire and see if there are cracks. The hubs will be warm but shouldn't be real hot. The brakes will drag a tiny bit, which is normal for a disc brake setup. If they are dragging a lot then you may have another issue.

If you bought it used and don't have a history on the tires, that may be the issue. Check for cracks and the manufacture date of the tires.
