SOURCE: operator manual for huffy crosswind bike grip shift

Look for the manufacturers name and model number on the gripshift and check at www.parktool.com. Look under derailleurs for repair tips which will give you an idea how they work. A twelve speed has six gears on the rear sprocket and two on the crank giving you a combination of twelve speeds. sheldonbrown.com is another good site with good articles and pictures.

SOURCE: We have an 18" boys huffy bike and the chain keeps...

If a single speed bike loosen the rear wheel and pull it back away from the pedals to get the chain tighter

If it has multi gears the arm hanging down has a ser screw that will need to be adjusted to align the chain to stop at the last gear

Pedal bearing or bottom bracket bearing? Your best bet would be to take it to a local Bike Shop and have them assess it.

You can use the 6 speed rear derailleur with no problems. The 5-spd shifter does not need to be disabled, as it will work just fine.

The shifter controls the rear derailleur, telling it how far to move. The rear derailluer just follows what is dictated, so there is no real difference mechanically between the 5spd and 6spd derailleurs, only in the shifter.

If you wanted to make the bike 6spd, you would have to change the shifter and gears along with the derailleur.

I have a broken derailer cable on an old huffy backwater bike where can I get a new one?


You can buy one from most neighbourhood bike repair shops. This should be a pretty standard item for them.

The lever on the right shifter is broken. I am just trying to find a replacement shifter. Do I need to replace with the same brand, or any 15-speed shifter?


You need to use the same one or one that is compatible with the gears in the back. I.e. a Shimano shifter will move your derailer a slightly different distance than a SRAM or campi shifter. You should talk to you local bike shop for more advice

I am trying to fix a Huffy Blackwater bicycle (15 speed). The rear derailleur is missing. Can I use a 6 speed derailleur from a Next bike? Can I disable the indexing of the Huffy (Falcon) shifter? Thanks

Chain Broke on a Huffy Tundra 18 speed 26" bike. I need to know the size chain to replace or the master link/chain connector to fix the chain.


if the bike has gears it does not have a master link, that is for single speed bikes only.

You will need an 8spd chain for your bike (1/2" x 3/32), these will fit any 6,7 or 8 spd bike. This requires a special tool to install ($8-$25), I would recommend taking into a bike shop and have them do it if you have no experience with this type of chain.

Side note: if you do own the tool, you can repair a broken chain for a temporary fix in the future, so may be worth buying. Check around, many bike shops offer basic repair classes and cover this.

Making the bike from a 18-speed to a 1 speed bike


single speed bikes have a single ratchet or fixed sprocket with no offset of the spokes, so you would probable need another rear wheel.
Another derailleur is probably simpler, try ebay

You can purchase a new 6 speed SRAM grif shifter for about $9.00 on Cambria Bikes.com They even come with derailleur cables installed!

I purchased a few 6 and 7 speed versions for my bikes, and they work fine.
