    I have the same problem. This is the second huffy bike brand i have bought and the first one i had to return as well. It really sucks. You go through all that trouble of carrying it home and up three flight of stairs and have it not fit together!!!! then you have to carry it back again. I' am so angry!

    I just talked to customer support about the same problem. On one side, put the wheel into the fork and attach the washer that hooks on to the hole in the fork ("alignment insert") and the nut. Then use a long screwdriver or other tool to gently apply pressure to spread the fork. The other side will eventually pop in, allowing you to put on the alignment insert and nut. Do not remove the inner nuts or try tightening them to get it to fit -- I tried both and neither works!

The screwdriver tip worked for me too (I used a thin spanner). Have one person hold the wheel and push it into the slot, while another spreads the fork by applying pressure between the wheel centre and the fork.

Cannot get front wheel axle into fork


Exactly what model Huffy bike do you have because it is impossible to answer without that info. Perhaps go to the Huffy website and indicate which bike it is.
If it is a basic man's or woman's mountain bike it is a very simple process.
So which bike are you having a problem with.

If you follow these instructions you will not have a problem. Copy and paste this into your browser

Huffy 12' bike front wheel doesn't fit


Mine had the same problem and there was no way bending the fork was going to work. It turns out they had installed an extral washer and nut on the axel. Take one off and retry fitting it. It may only go on one way. Make sure, before you tighten it, that the wheel turns freely.

When installing the front wheel, the wheel is touching the frame. it is straight out of the box...suggestions?


It sounds like either a bent fork or a damaged wheel. To check the fork, rest the bike on a flat floor with no front wheel in, the handlebars should be in the normal position for going straight (right angles to frame), if the bike sits level, then the fork is ok.

To check the wheel, hold the hub and spin it a bit, you should see a big whobble if it is that damaged.

If it is just the wheel, you can take that back to the shop, otherwise you will have to bring the bike back, sadly.

Hope that helps.

I bought the huffy 16"


It's pretty hard to know how to help you exactly. But this may help--- if you have (or can borrow) a digital camera, take close-up pictures of your parts then take the camera with you to a Wal-mart or wherever this bike is sold. Compare your pictures to one on display. Or better yet, take the whole bike with you. Or just take close-up pictures of the bike on display. It might also be useful to know that the front fork (that is the two metal bars about 10 inches long that point toward the ground that the wheel attaches to) sometimes have to be spread apart just a bit to fit the wheel's axle in place. I'm talking about maybe 1/4 inch or so. If it's a lot more than that the fork may have gotten bent in shipment and you should take it back.
good luck, Merry Christmas. Al K

The pedal hits the tire whilst turning. We just got the bikes and put them together but when you ride and try to turn, the pedal hits the front tire and causes the bike to stop abruptly.


The pedal should not be able to reach the front tire. Sometimes one gets their toes to overlap the front wheel on a racing bike but that's because they have intentionally short wheel base and a steep for angle. Which way is the fork on your bike pointing? It should be angled or curved forward.

Look at the bike icon on this posting for an example.

I am needing a manuel on how to put a 10 speed 26in girls bicycle together it is about a 1977


Rear wheel should be already on, put front wheel into forks and tighten nuts or quick release lever.
The handlebars should alredy be attchd to the neck. Put the neck into the frame and tighten bolt or allen head when bars are straight aligned to front wheel. Install seat and any reflectors....follow these instructions carefully cause the manual that comes w/these bikes is junk....Good Luck to you friend.....Tim
