Check your speedometer gear box, it probably got bumped during removal/installation. The cable may have got pulled out. You can see the gearbox here:

When u replaced the front wheel did u make sure that the gear unit at the wheel end was engaged into the slot for the speedo correctly. if this is not fitted correctly then it will not move the speedo cable and thus the indicator will not work either,

How to change back innertube on 26" mongoose estes bike

First turn the adjuster on the rear brake handle all the way in and make sure the slots on the adjuster and set nut are lined up, pull the brake cable out and leave it attached to the lever to open the rear brake pads, loosen the bolts on the tire and pull the derailer up to remove the tire, remove the dustcap from tube and using a flat tool (Wal-Mart has tire tools for $1) take one side of the tire bead out of the rim, pull the old tube out, place the stem of the new tube in the hole and put the cap on, tuck the new tube in the tire trying to keep it flat as possible, push the bead of the tire back into the rim. before inflating the tire, put it back on the frame while pulling the derailer up to get the chain back on the cogs( they will adjust later) tighten the bolts and inflate the tire to desired pressure (between 35-60 psi)

Insurance wants to replace 1 tire after vehicle wreck. Tire wear 6/32 on front 8/32 on rear tires. What drive problems will result from replacing just one tire? The vehicle is a 2004 Endeavor

I used to work for a insurance company. I have also been in the auto body busn. since 1980. I have seen this many times. In the past I have put the new tire on the back. Then put the best 2 of the remaining tires on the front. As long that rotation of the tires is in line with what your owners manual recomends. Very few insurance companies will put two tires on, when only one is damaged. If you do put 1 new tire on the front it might pull a little or drift a little to one side or the other.

How do you change a innertube on a back wheel of a mountain bike

You have to remove the entire wheel from the bike. Then change it just like you'd change a front tire... remove oneside of the tire from the rim, pull out bad tube, clean rim, put in new tube, put tire back on rim, inflat tube... good to go. There are 1,000,000 videos on YouTube to show you this process.

Push bike tire

Inner tubes commonly lose air when stored for as little as a couple of months and quicker when cold. They also tend to dry out and leak as fast as you can pump. Replacement tubes are available at bike shops and even less than $6.00 bucks at Wal-Mart.

To replace(The long version,cause the short version not good):
Remove wheel from bike, trike, trailer, etc. and deflate tube completely. You will need 2 box end wrenches (the ones with the closed ends, because these are not sharp). Insert box end of wrenches next to each other between rim and and one wall of tire, now pry the wrenches back so as to pry one wall of tire to the outside of rim, now alternatingwrenches, slide wrenches away from each other to slowly walk one wall of tire outside of the rim, reach in and grasp old tube and pull it out. Now straight new tube out remove plastic fill cap(put cap in your pocket), reach in and insert filler into hole in rim, now working your way around with your fingers to push tube up into tire(carefull not to let it get twisted), now put cap back on tube so you don't loose the filler, now work your way around with your fingers to push tire back into rim, you may need to use the box end of the wrenchto help pry the last bit of tire back in(Just don't pinch the tube between wrench and rim while doing this, lest you now have a new hole to fix), now grasp filler so you don't loose it, add air to amount shown on tire, and RIDE ON!

It sounds like a possible bad front wheel bearing they will make like a humming or growling noise.The pull could be air pressure a little lower in the right front tire than the left front check the air in all tires and if pull is still there take the left front put it on the right front and put the right front tire on the left front.Sometimes tires get what they call radial pull and that will fix it or make it go the other way if it goes the other way either get new tires or put the back tires on the front of the vehicle and put the front tires on the back.

Speedometer Not Working

the speedometer isn't working now. When i removed the tire i noticed the tabs in the rim but all i did was put the round speedo part in.Either you didn't get the notches set correctly or the 'rod' inside the cable isn't seated right. Or the rod broke like mine just did, and will need replacement.,,,
