Take the wheel off the bike. take the outer two nuts & washers off. You will then have another set of nuts. You should only beable to get eathier a 1/2 or 9/16 wrench on the inner nuts. Then tighten those nuts. Not too tight, just snug. Replace the wheel on the bike, replace the washers & nuts and tighten those tight.
You should beable to pedal.
You did'nt say if this is a single speed, 3sp, 10sp or 15sp. If you have additional gears, then you may have to reallign the cam for shifting.

My sons smart tikes pedals do not move the front tire. The only way to get the bike to move I it is being pushed...? Help please.


Same thing happens today with the bike Radio Flyer Trike 4 in 1. I just opened the red adjustable hub, and found one spring detached, and both springs that control the 2-pawl system of ratchet system very loose. I tensioned both springs but it worked for one day only. Called customer service, provided all the necessary information and they promised a new front wheel. In 3 business days a received, a brand new front wheel with pedals and fork. The pedals are fixed on wheel, and is the best solution from radio Flyer for a Kid who is grown with the bike from 18 months to 36 month, and now at age 3 rides the lovely Radio Flyer like a dare devil. Thank you Radio Flyer.
Having a strong mechanical background, I opened system, both sides of the wheel. To dissemble and repair, I had to remove one pedal on the side of the big white hub. What I found inside was a Ratchet wheel, with rounded teeth, and 2 Pawls totally worn out.
I fixed drilling 4 holes all the way through metallic plate, ratchet wheel, and the hub of the wheel. Inside the hub cavity, I used 4 washers and nuts to secure tight all 4, 3/32 stainless steel screws.
My grandson is very happy and more confident, because now he can move the bike forward, and backwards, and the most important, now he can use the pedals of the front wheel to stop the bike. Which it was a safety flaw by original design of this bike, but solved now by Radio Flyer. The new wheel Red Hub has 2 Positions. 1 PULL TO COAST. 2 PUSH TO PEDAL.

I have a hyper pro model bmx bike and My back rim tightens up when I start to pedal


Do you mean that the back wheel becomes hard to roll when you start to pedal? And is this tightening up coming from the center of the wheel (bearings, hub, axle), and not from the rim or tire rubbing on something like the brakes or the bike frame? I am guessing a lot here from your breif description of the problem, but if I have that right you will have to remove the rear wheel and partially disassemble the hub. The locknuts that should constrain the space taken up by the bearings and the mechanism that allows you to pedal or coast (assuming this is not a fixed-gear bike) are either loose or adjusted too tight. It is also possible that the coaster mechanism has another problem. Good luck!

The back tire rubs against the frame only when I pedal. The tire wobbles a little bit while coasting, but appears to pull over to the frame while pedaling. Huffy Stonemountain 2 - 18 speed bicycle.


Either the wheel is mounted wrong, moving at the axle or the wheel is not straight true and strong (spoke tension issues). Look at it. Try to wiggle the wheel with your hand.

Use search engines for "how to" questions.

No brakes at rear wheel of my 2005 standard goldwing. Had a new rear tire(screw/nail) put on and the service man told me.I normally slow down slow enough to use front brakes.I had installed full foot...


Try putting the bike on the center stand and get the front wheel off the ground with a floor jack. Spin the front wheel by hand and press on the rear brake pedal. The front wheel should stop. Likewise with the bike on the center stand and the rear wheel off the ground you should be able to lock the rear wheel with the foot pedal. On many Goldwings the rear pedal also operates one front disc. This is for people that refuse to use there front brakes to stop or slow there bike (80% to 90% of your stopping power is the front brake). Try bleeding the entire system front and back, you may just have air in the system. If the rear brake still does not work you may have a bad delay valve in the system. If you need to take the bike in to a shop, try to find a mechanic that is familiar with the system so they do not replace parts unnecessarily. That way you minimize your shop time and maximize your riding time.

Son's can pedal 12" bike


Yes, something isn't turning freely. It's either the front wheel, the back wheel, or the pedals and chain. Lift the bike off the ground and turn the front wheel by hand. If it doesn't turn very freely, it could be the hand-brake is dragging or the hub bearing is too tight. Try the back wheel in both directions. It should move freely in the forward direction. When rolling it backwards it is normal for the pedals to move too if this bike has a coaster brake (that is the kind of brake that is applied by pushing the pedals backwards.) It the back wheel moves forward freely, but backwards is a problem, then try the pedals by hand with the rear wheel off the ground. If this doesn't turn freely, the pedal crank bearing (a.k.a. bottom bracket) is too tight. Once you have identified the problem take it back to where you got it. It should be easy to fix, or they should replace it.

some bikes are like that. The rear wheel only spins with the pedals. Try pedaling backwards and see if the wheel goes back. If it does then that is normal.
