If the other side wheelnut is tighten mounted , Use on the other side to adjust a real cone wrench to fixate the pre-set cone without slack and mount the fixating small axle nut (but tight enough) against the pre-set cone. thats the problem because if this is not fixate it will allways become tight running after a few kilometers the rear wheel does not turn smoothly and your bearing can become damaged. rings and extra tight fixate of wheelnuts does not help without a cone wrench this problem cannot be solved. by wheels with coaster brake.

Try the bearings. Try a different wheel and rim. If its not the wheel then the crank bearings( ones the pedals are on) could be bad or the chain could be not set right.

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.

Girls skeleanimal bike brake is stuck so back wheel won't move


It's a Huffy. 'Nuff said.

Manuals here - http://www.huffy.com/Support/OwnersManuals.aspx

If the cable isn't passing freely inside the cable housing it won't relax brake pressure when the lever is released.

Hi, my daughter pricess bike won't ride. am not what is wrong. newly prchsed and assemble. please can you help?


will the pedals move forward? they should cause the chain to move and the crank in the back to cause the wheel to spin, if this isnt happening, look at the chain and make sure its correctly on both sprockets, if the pedals still wont spin, they may be too tight on the crank.

Hello, I bought my little girl the huffy 12in disney princess bike (blue) already assembled from walmart. she tried to ride it today, but when she pedals the back wheel spins, but the training wheels and...


ONE AT A TIME, loosen the nuts securing the training wheels to the rear axle and slide each one upward a little bit so it float a little bit off the ground when the bike is vertical, then retighten the nut.

As she develops her handling and balance skills she'll need less help from the training wheel. So you can gradually raise them a bit higher as she masters balance and then she'll develop the 'lean' for turning. Ultimately, you remove them entirely.

I hope she's wearing a properly-fitted helmet.

This bick sucks and you have to have an


That's fine as long as the wheel spins freely and not stopping the wheel from turning. You can loosen the nuts a bit so it would have some play. If it does affect the wheel from freely turning then you've set the tension to much. It's the same concept with automotive brakes using a floating caliper, one side will release more than the other although not hindering it's operation.

16" Girls Mongoose Pizazz Problem!!!


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.

Rear wheel not running smoothly.


Thank you for using fixya, the problem that you are encountering may be attributed to the freewheel (rear) or the hub to axle assembly on both front and rear.

Im currently using a Haro Flightline and used a few. When this kind of problem occurs, you may want to focus on the following:

crank set: remove the chain and check if it rolls freely, if not, try to open the case and look out for broken ball bearings or misalligned parts, then lubricate it.

Rear wheel assembly: remove the chain and the whole assembly from the bike, then check if it rolls freely. If not, same method, check the bearings and the freewheel. allign and lubricate it.

Childs 12 inch mongoose is new, but back wheel does not spin prop


The bikes are pre-assembled by a machine that overtightens the rear axle.  I had the same problem with my daugher's 12 inch huffy princess bike and my other duaghter's 16 inch Schwinn bike.  If you loosen the nuts on the back axle it fixes the problem.  I have read that the idea thing for these bike is to have them re-assembled and re-lubricated by a bike shop, but I thought this might cost as much as I paid for the bike.
