A bike shop may be able to help you. Maybe you could just repair the tube with a tube repair kit, available anywhere bicycle accessories are sold.

SOURCE: huffy green machine front tire is flat

There are nuts at each side of the axel, on which the wheel turns. These may have to loosened by a spanner or may have quick release levers. If there are levers pull them outwards from the wheel and you can then turn them to release the wheel. Let all the air out of the wheel. Then insert 2 levers under the edge of the tyre, about 6 inches apart and pull the tyre out over the rim of the wheel. Put in your finger and pull the rest of the tyre over the rim. Then lever the other side of the tyre over the same side of the wheel and remove the tube. Replace the tube ensuring that the valve for pumping is in place first. Replace the tyre as far as possible by hand and use the levers for the final few inches taking care not to trap the tube between the lever and the rim of the wheel as this could cut the tube. Place the wheel back on the bike and tighten the nuts.

Don't replace the wheel, get it fixed. The spoke can be tightened and the rim tensioned and trued. The rim strip probably needs to be looked at for exposing the spoke ends to the tube.

How do I change the inner tube on my rear tire


This is no easy task!
You will need to remove the rear wheel to access the wheel, tire, and inner tube
Unless you have a single speed rear axle, you will be needing to disconnect the multi-speed gearing, which you may not really enjoy.
God bless your efforts.

Have an older Huffy female 12-spd road bike that is missing the rear wheel assembly. Looking to find a replacement as well as instruction manual...wheel assy. more important. Thanks.


Unless you have a deep sentimental connection with the bike, it may not be with it:
Rear wheel - $35-$45
Rim strip/tape - $1
Tube - $8-14
Tire - $10-20
Gear cluster - $25-40

New Huffy is about $150-250

You might be able to find a used bike or wheel at a garage sale that would work.

Just picked up my bike from Walmart. They installed the seat wrong. The stirrup part is pointing straight up. Can't even sit on it.


Loosen the adjustment nut, and place into correct position.
Otherwise, take it right back and have them make the proper adjustment, free of charge - don't forget to take proof of payment / receipt.

I need to know how to change a back inner tube on a 16" huffy bike no gears


Sue, there are lots of how-to videos out there about this. Just google "How to change bike tube" or tire, or flat. You have to remove the wheel, which is easiest with TWO wrenches - they can be the adjustable "Crescent" wrenches, but don't use pliers. You also have to remove the small screw that holds the fat little L-shaped lever to bike. Use a rag to remove the chain from the cog on the wheel. Then use the little "Tire irons" to remove the tire from the rim and get the old tube out - these come three to a set, the plastic ones are best, and you can get them at K-mart. Also, use some baby powder (talc is better than cornstarch) to make the new tube easier to position correctly in the tire - sprinkle the powder inside the tire when you have if off and put the tube in the tire before you put the tire back on the rim. It helps if you put a little air in the tube to make it a nice sausage first. And make sure you get the valve stem straight and pulled all of the way through the hole in the rim. Be very careful that you don't pinch the tube against the rim when you put the tire back on. And the hardest part might be getting a pump to hold tight onto the valve stem - using compressed air (like at a gas station) is by far the easiest method. Good luck.

We have the 20 inch Huffy seastar and the tires wont hold air, Do I need a new tube? and if so where can I buy them


beckysmith123-

Sounds like you may need new tubes. Tubes may be purchased from bike shops, most hardware stores, and some big box retail stores like Kmart and Target, to name a few.

If the leaks in the tubes are reasonably small, there are several products that can be squeezed into the tubes to seal punctures - both existing ones and ones that occur after the product is added. They are put into the tube through the valve stem, similar to adding air). Two that I know of are Fix-a-Flat and Slime. Both can be purchased at most hardware and automotive stores.

Changing a tube is not terribly difficult but can appear daunting if you've never done it before and don't have some of the tools required.

Hereare step-by-step instructions for most styles bicycle:
  1. Loosen thenuts that hold the axle to the frame.If they are extremely tight, spray some lubricant on the nuts - a siliconelubricant or even vegetable oil will do the trick.
  2. Take thewheel out of the frame. If it's therear wheel, you will need to lift the chain clear of the gear cluster. To easethe removal of a rear wheel, shift the chain to the smallest gear on the wheelbefore loosening the skewer or nuts. If it's the front wheel, that one will bea little easier. You may also need to release the brakes if they interfere withwheel removal.
  3. Deflate thetube completely by pressing down on the inner part of the valve.
  4. Take acouple of tire levers (you can purchase these at your local bike/outdoor store). You can use the handle of a spoon or similarobject if you don't have tire levers but be very careful, as you riskscratching or damaging the rims of the wheel and/or puncturing the inner tube.Ease one lever in under the wheel rim and lever out the edge of the tire(taking great care not to puncture the inner tube) and pry it up over the wheelrim. Move around the rim about an eighth of the circumference and repeat theprocess again, leaving the first tool in place. Now zip the second lever aroundthe wheel and the tire should come right off on one side.
  5. Remove thewheel and tube completely.
  6. Replace theinner tube
  7. Check thetire wall for an arrow or similar to indicate the direction of rotation - sometires have a "direction specific" tread pattern.
  8. Put one sidein first, then ease the partially inflated tube into the tire and locate thevalve in the hole in the rim.
  9. Starting atthe tire edge closest to the valve, use your thumbs to work the other side oftire over the rim and into well.
  10. Beforeinflating, use your thumbs again to ease the tire from the rim all around the circumference,peeking in to make sure that the tire is not pinching any part of the tubeagainst the rim. When youinflate the tube, if it is pinching, it will pop, and you will have to repeatthe entire process, and buy a new tube.
  11. Inflate thetube,checking to make sure the tireis on evenly and there is no "pinching".
  12. You're now ready to put the wheel back on the bike.
Hope this helps.

Place the wheel back on the bike and tighten the nuts.
