I have a 26" alum mongoose on the frame their is 2 cracks where the handbar mounts is this factory warranty???

There should be no cracking in the frame if the bike has not been dropped or crashed at some stage which has then resulted in the cracking appearing.
If the bike has not been abused and the warranty is still current and not expired then you can make a warranty claim if you have the proof of purchase .
Read the warranty terms and conditions first which should have come with the bike documents. If not available, the warranty detail is probably published on the manufacturer's web site.

The better bike manufacturers using very good quality frames normally offer a long warranty on the frame. That is not the case for all the cheapie bikes which most people tend to buy.

Is it possible to fix a crack in a bmx bike frame or does it have to be replaced?

A ggod welder should be able to fix the cracked frame. Be sure the frame is straight. Sounds like a headpost crack, very common a BMX.

Manual needed for Cannondale r300 bicycle. Don't know what year it is.

Look around and

What exactly are you needing instructions for? Most bikes are just static frames with a bunch of aftermarket (Shimano, for example) stuff hung on them.

Everything on a common bike is found on just about any other brand of bike and the individual components are usually documented at the individual manufacturers' websites.

"How-to" procedures are all over the internet.

Where can i get a starter for 2003 cannondale 440 speed

Hi, Remington526 for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem. For more information about your issue and free downloads that you will need please visit the websites below. Good luck and have a nice day.

Can i use a rear skewer with bolt ends on my cannondale quick 6? will they ruin my frame? i purchased a used forza bike trainer and it did not come with a skewer. i am not sure what kind of skewer to...

Look at this old-school skewer and find one at a local bike shop or ask a friend who owns a couple of bikes. He probably has some unused ones just lying around.

That's the universal design for wheel holders on stationary trainers.

Bicycle recommendations?After many many years of not owning a bike, I've decided I want to get one, not only to keep in shape, riding around town, and on trails (gravel, not hard-core off-roading), but...

I have the Cannondale T2000, best bike I have ever owned. -6TR2.html

If you have an REI store near you, they have a great bicycle shop, and carry the brand Novara, here is a little article about Novara: html?cm_re=NovaraHP*Top*Novara_Story

If the Cannondale is a little out of your price range, my second recommendation is the Novara Safari, which has a really nice handle bar configuration. y?storeId=8000&catalogId=40000008000& productId=47968753&parent_category_rn=450 0921

Both of the above recommended bicycles are considered touring bikes or hybrids. They are very comfortable and easy to use.

Whatever you decide on, make sure you get something with trigger shifting, it really makes a difference for ease of operation and unlike twist shifting, which you accidently knock your bike out of gear when you hit a small bump.

Also, make sure you get fitted for a bike at a bike shop. It makes a world of difference to have your bike properly fitted for your frame. A good bike shop will offer to fit you, then suggest you come back in a couple of weeks for adjustments and to tighten the brake cables.

This is really important, make sure you have a proper fitting helmet. My helmet saved my life. I can not tell you how important it is to have a helmet that fits properly and that each time you get on your bicycle you check the straps and make sure that your helmet is secure.

Changing shifters on my Trek 1400

Of course it can be converted to anything you want - at a price and with some effort. I recently converted a vintage 1984 Cannondale road bike from 2x7 Suntour downtube to full Campi 2x9, carbon crank, yada yada. I like riding it as much as any of the other 3 road bikes I have.

I sourced most of the parts for my various bike projects on eBay. If you're looking for vintage or retro, that's where you go. Just avoid buying cassettes that have been 'slightly' used.

Assuming your bike is still an original 7- or 8-speed, and you want to keep it that way, you may have to hunt around for compatible shifters. Upgrading from 7- or 8-speed to 9 may be the way to go, but then you'd have to get a new cassette (minimum) or a new wheel, or it may not fit into your frame's rear dropouts as the axle spacing crept up over the years with the addition of cogs.

Consider all the individual steps conversion may require; and if each requires yet another modification or encounters a dead end, like frame spacing. At retail prices for parts these days it might be more economical to get a new bike. OTOH, there's no matching the satisfaction of keeping a favorite steed active and doing the work yourself.

How many bike

Jeeze its simple Deatons.When parts run out they get produced.Whether by ATKBlackwidowTimboCanniboomer,combination or whoever.Latest has been cases.Pistons,bearings,cranks,seals all come to mind as parts that ran out or were defective and have been replaced.As far as I know there is no shortage of frames and they arent defective so they arent being made yet. ,,,
