Brake assembly How do you attach the brake cable to the handle bar grip? The knob at the end of the cable is not fitting in to the slotted screw on the handle bar. The part of the brake on the wheel was already assembled, I just can't get it attached to the "hand-pull" break grip.

If you loosen the wire that is connected to the gripping machanism first , you will have long enough wire to put it throu the brake grip first then tighten it back at the wheel gripping area.

If this is what I'm thinking of you have to pull the little knob at the end of the cable out a little with pliers so that some of the cable is exposed and then it shoud fit in the pull handle

Squeeze the wishbone break, which will release some extra wire. Then you can pull back the knob from the wire and thread it through the two holes in the handlebar.

SOURCE: Brake assembly

I did no find assembly instructions specific to this model.  From what I see in pictures and descriptions it looks like a standard caliper brake on the front wheel.  The knob/plug on the cable should fit into a groove and hole on the brake lever if the cable is slack enough to make the connection.  You may have to loosen the cable tension nuts at the caliper and at the brake handle (labeled 1 & 2 in the instructions) to get enough slack.
Generic instructions are at: http://www.huffy.com/resources/pdfs/multispeed_manual.pdf
See pages 21-23 for instructions about adjusting the brakes.  You will have to do this after making the connection and it shows the various cable tension nuts that you can use to get enough slack in the cable to connect it.  If you loosen the cable tension nuts (1&2) enough you should be able to remove the cable from the slot through the housing, expose the attachment slot in the brake handle by pressing it against the handlebar, insert the knob/plug into the hole and then work the cable back into the slot in the housing.  Tighten up the tension nuts and make the final adjustments as described in the instructions.

How do I connect the brake cable to the handle bars on Mongooose bmx scan R60


Brake cables have a knob on the end of them, that knob fits into the brake lever. A great web site for more information is "Sheltonbrown.com". To install the cable ends, brakes must be released at the other end. The top of the cable at the brake should have a disconnect on it. That frees up the cable, so iut can be connected.

My Diamondback Team Grip bicycle grips I just bought have a plastic end cap with screw and other small part, how does this end cap go on? No instructions came with the packaging.


The small part is most likely a star nut chriscanhelp_0.jpgThis pic is proper orientation Top = Top

If so you must install this in the end of the handle bar with a hammer. First put the screw into the top of the nut and line the nut up with the open end of the haldle bar. Lightly tap the nut into the end of the bar until the screw head is ammost flush with the end of the bar. Remove the screw with allen wrenches, install grips, put screw through plastic end cap and thresd into star nut inside the bar.

Hope this helps.

The only thing I can see going wrong is the wrong star nut for your diametre of handle bar.

Assembly is as follows: Star nut first into bar,

Schwinn 21 speed hybrid. Just bought the bike and when you try to pedal backwards the chain come off.


Most likley a rear drailleur issue. Try to turn the adjustment screw at the handle bar end where the derailleur cable goes into the grip. This is a fine adjustment screw for the drailleur itself. It will allow mirco adjustment of the cable to line the derailleur up perfectly so the chain stays in place

How to attach hand brakes? how do i loosen handle bars to adjust?


The bolt you see right above where the handle turns is the handle bar clamp. And if it's been on a while you'll need to take a piece of strong wood and hold it on the bolt, when it's lossened a bit, and hit it with a hammer to fully loosen the handle bars.
Hand brakes should come with clamps to put on the hadle bars, and if you look at bikes that have hand brake, you'll see how to route the cable. The only problwem is if your bike doesn't have the part taht the brake would screw to at the wheel. Then you'll have to improvise.

The housing of my brakes on the handle bars is loose and keeps moving. how do i tighten it so that it stops moving when i apply pressure on it and/or squeeze the brake lever??


If the screw is all the way tight and still slipping ... try to find a fatter part of the handle bar to mount the grip to. You will probably will not find any such that is convenient for you to continue to use the brake ... remove the grip, wrap some electrical tape around the handle bar, reattach the grip. Tighten it and give it a try.

I hope this works for you

Bicycles Brakes Tightening


Are the brakes center pull or side pull?
Center pull would have a nut directly in the center of the brake. Now go to the brake lever on your handle bars and tighten the turn screw where the cable handle is. Keep turning the nut till your brakes grip.
If you have side pull brakes. Then where the cable meets the breaks. Their is a nut that the cable slides through. Loosen the nut and firmly pull the cable till its tight and retighten the nut.
