Make sure the rear wheel axle is snugged up against he dropouts in the frame and that the wheel is centered in the brakes. Also, check the seating of the shifter cable at each end, but most likely at the rear shifter, to make sure the jacket is inside the ferrule.

Of course, it is impossible to get a sense for how well maintained the bike is. Perhaps the shifting problem's appearance is not related to the wheel removal and may be something else like bad cables or cable housing. The cable should slide easily in the housing. Shift the bike to its lowest (easiest) gears in front and in back. Then, without moving the crank, manually tug on the rear shifter cable from the rear and push it in. Resistance is bad. Sometimes a bit of lube inside the housing will buy you some time. Use something thin and squirt a little into the end then cycle the cable in and out to distribute it.

If you don't have a bike repair stand, find a small tree with a stout, narrow, low horizontal branch about shoulder height and hook the front of your seat on it so you can spin the cranks and test the shifting. If it's hard to downshift the rear (pulling cable into the housing) it will likely not freely shift upward because the only froce pulling the cable out is the little spring in the derailleur.

Shift to the highest (smallest) cog and sight along the axis of the it and the two rear derailleur pullies. They should all be in the same exact vertical alignment. If they're parallel but not aligned you can adjust the barrel on the cable at the derailleur. Try a small turn then shift up and down while turning the crank to get the cable and shifter to settle where the new adjustment wants to be.

If you ride regualrly it would be worthwhile to find a local bike shop (LBS) and get to know them. They can teach you some self sufficiency in exchange for a little business from you.

SOURCE: huffy green machine front tire is flat

There are nuts at each side of the axel, on which the wheel turns. These may have to loosened by a spanner or may have quick release levers. If there are levers pull them outwards from the wheel and you can then turn them to release the wheel. Let all the air out of the wheel. Then insert 2 levers under the edge of the tyre, about 6 inches apart and pull the tyre out over the rim of the wheel. Put in your finger and pull the rest of the tyre over the rim. Then lever the other side of the tyre over the same side of the wheel and remove the tube. Replace the tube ensuring that the valve for pumping is in place first. Replace the tyre as far as possible by hand and use the levers for the final few inches taking care not to trap the tube between the lever and the rim of the wheel as this could cut the tube. Place the wheel back on the bike and tighten the nuts.

Don't replace the wheel, get it fixed. The spoke can be tightened and the rim tensioned and trued. The rim strip probably needs to be looked at for exposing the spoke ends to the tube.

How do i change tube on the wheel for my pride prusuit 36 sport? I have it removed and screws in the center of wheel out


Deflate the tyre completely by removing the tyre valve only then undo the nuts on the outer bolts take the two halves of the wheel apart remove the old inner tube noting carefully how the valve was placed through the wheel. Check the wheel interior and rims for rough or rusty patches, clean it up fit the new (empty) inner tube making sure that nothing is pinched reassemble the wheel halves together and be sure to fully tighten all nuts before fitting a new inner tube valve and you are ready to inflate the wheel. Do this in stages and gently bounce the wheel to settle the tube and rims then continue inflating continue a bit beyond the recommended tyre pressure and then release the air to the optimum pressure.

idea. If you have uniform wheels, consider buying a 5th wheel as a spare and fit it to the tow bar/ accessory attachment point behind your seat. I've done this on my venerable Pride Celebrity XL8.

How to remove the front wheel on bike to change inner tube


If the wheel is quick release all you need to do is turn the lever one half turn clockwise, and the wheel should drop out of the forks.If , however, it is retained by nuts you will need the appropriate size spanner - slacken the nuts and drop the wheel out. Open the valve ( or if it's a car type- depress the pin to let the air out). Next you need a set of three tyre levers (from your local cycle shop) Carefully ease one side of the tyre away from the rim. If there is a lock ring on the valve, undo it.Pull out the inner tube and replace with a new one. Ease the tyre back into position being careful not to trap the new tube.Blow up the tyre, refit the wheel,tighten the nuts or quick release system.Ensure that the wheel is secure before riding the bike.

Struggling to fit replacement inner tube and tyre to our quinny buzz3... Any tips?


You need a set of tire levers to begin with.. anyplace that sells bike parts/tubes tires will have these.. they are just a nicely set of angled thin yet dull levers.

Using the levers you will need to lift one edge of the tire off the rim so the tire is half way on the wheel. To simply replace the tube.. continue on to B.

To completely remove the tire off the wheel.. flip the wheel over and using the levers pry the tire the rest of the way off the wheel. working your way around.. it will be snug then suddenly free.

Replaceing the tire is the same..except you only want to put it on half way before inserting the tube..


B. Remove the air stem cap and if you have the tool to remove the needle valve from the stem.. do that too as to let ALL the air out of the flat.. then pull the bad tube out.

Put the new deflated tube inside the wheel as flat and wrinkle free as possible starting with placing the air stem through the wheel.. and working it around until well seated.. some folks will use a bit of talcum powder on the tube.. usually they come dusted to allow them to properly fit when inflated.

Once you have the tube in the wheel.. start pressing the tire bead back under the rim.. depending on the wheel.. you may want to partly inflate the tube.. just a tiny bit.. so it will not get trapped between the tire and wheel rim when you re-seat the tire.. you can usually re-seat the tire to the rim with your fingers..becareful not to pinch yourself.

Inspect the wheel to make sure no parts of the inner tube is visible.. inflate to proper psi.. put on the stem cap.. replace the wheel.

You can buy a set of tire liners that will prevent punctures.. but of course this involves doing most of the above times four.

Lastly.. if you feel you just can't get it done.. stop by a good bike shop.. they will do it for you in just a few minutes.. possibly for no charge or little charge.

Best of luck!

A spoke on the rear wheel has snapped off how can I repair it?


Simply buy a replacement spoke. Unscrew the dustcap on the tyre valve and deflate the tyres inner tube. Remove tyre using tyre levers(as you do to repair a puncture). Next remove the inner tube to reveal the spoke tensioners. undo the tension nut and allow the broken spoke to fall out, feed the other part of the broken spoke out of the hub. feed the replacement spoke through the hub and into the hole on the wheel rim. Now screw on the tensioning nut to the spoke.Tighten up to the same tension as the other spokes. replace inner tube and tyre, then reinflate. Viola!

Back wheels keep deflating


hi, the chances are you have a puncture os something sharp sticking into the inner tube inside the tyre, what you need to do is buy a puncture repair kit then using the repair kit you take the tyre off the wheel then take the inner tube out.
now blow the inner tube up and place it in bowl of water and you should see bubbles coming off the inner tube, mark this with pen when dry so you know where the whole is, now use the puncture kit and place a patch over the whole, you can buy glue type patches or stick on patches without glue, you peel the back off the patch and put glue on or stick it over the whole if its a stick on patch and not glue.

then whilst this dry run your fingers around the inside of the tyre and check for any thorns or something sharp sticking in the tyre if you feel anything remove it and you should be ok, then when glue dry put the inner tube back in tyre and fit the tyre back on wheel now when you pump it up it shouldnt go back down unless you get another puncture.

if you are unsure what you are doing then taking your stroller into any bike shop and ask them to repair the punctures for you and they will do this for you whilst you wait.

Air is leaking from spoke how do i stop this


Your inner tube is leaking air. Remove the wheel and remove the tire on one side only (one bead over the rim edge) to allow access to the inner tube. remove the tube and the tire the rest of the way. Basic tire removing tools are neccesary such as tire spoons and rim protectors. check the rim for sharp points as well as any debris that might have punctured the tire. Check the inside of the tire very carefully as well. If somthing punctured the tire it might be still sticking out on the inside - a potential hazard to your fingers. Patch the tube or, better yet, replace it - a much more dependable solution. Install one bead of the tire back on and then the tube. Infate and deflate the tube with one side of the tire off the rim to ensure proper fit and arrangement of the tube inside the tire. Reinstall the tire and the wheel back into the bike following manufacturers recommended procedures and torques found in a service manual.
