SOURCE: operator manual for huffy crosswind bike grip shift

Look for the manufacturers name and model number on the gripshift and check at 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. is another good site with good articles and pictures.

SOURCE: i hav a problem with my huffy dual suspension

i am not sure if your problem is with the shifters or the drailleurs, or just the cable tension. Start by shifting the front into the low gear and the rear into the high gear, then release the cables at the derailleur. Pull them both tight and retighten. If this doe snot work, go to and check out their step-by-step information on bike maintenance by clicking on the part of the bike you are having trouble with.

Hope this helps,

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

Needto lubricate rear wheel bearings on a huffy single speed bike

as most bikes do not have seals on the wheel axles , it is possible to lay the bike on the side , use machine oil on the hub and axle area and spin the wheel while allowing drops of oil onto the axle bearing hub area
or you can take the hub apart and fill with a very light grease

I have a Mongoose Dual Suspension Mountain Bicycle 26 inch that I purchased approx. 2007 and I need the rear wheel axel and bearing assembly. Where would I be able to purchase these parts?

It's prabably easier to buy a whole new hub. And for ablout another $20 you get a whole new tire. You should do that. Have a bike shop do it because it can be tricky.

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

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.

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

If the gears will no longer go back on the bike, I would recommend buying a new wheel (including a new rear hub). It is usually easier and more cost effective to buy a wheel than to replace the hub. To replace the hub (the part that is stripped on your bike) you would also have to remove and replace spokes, etc. Search online for the wheel size you need (probably 26" - you can check the tire size) or take to a reliable bicycle shop and they will gladly help you. Anyway, you need a new hub but probably better off getting a new wheel - much easier.
