SOURCE: I have an AVANTI Blade

This is a solution I strongly recommend you take into a bicycle shop. It will either be a problem they can fix (needs to be seen to properly diagnose) or a possible warranty issue which they would be the ones to take care of anyway.

The problem could be anything from an adjustment, which is far to complicated to explain with those hubs up to a broken part.

SOURCE: removal of rear wheel with internal geared 3-speed and coaster brake hub

Find the joiner link on the chain, remove the retainer clip followed by the link. Remove the chain. Remove the bolt holding the brake arm to the frame. Loosen the axle bolts on the wheel enough to be able to slide the rear wheel out of its slots on the frame.

Needto lubricate rear wheel bearings on a huffy single speed bike

as most bikes do not have seals on the wheel axles , it is possible to lay the bike on the side , use machine oil on the hub and axle area and spin the wheel while allowing drops of oil onto the axle bearing hub area
or you can take the hub apart and fill with a very light grease

Creaking noise

Hi there,

I know, this can be extremely frustrating...

First and easiest, check that your rear wheel is tightened completely, this can also sound like suspension noises.

Next, a bit more effort, unscrew your pedals, clean out the gunk, put some grease on the thread and replace, tighten securely.

You might also have to check your wheel bearings, mine is in the shop at the moment because of this, bearing issues...

I would also check the BB (bottom bearing) where your crank goes through, before the last step. This can also cause a lot of noise.

Lastly, if it is your suspension, you will have to take it apart, every link and check every bearing, they so have a limited life, clean out all dust and grit that gathered inside, replace and grease all bearings and links, but don't over tighten the links.

Here is a full service manual for you:

For a full suspension service, you will have to look at every single point that hinges on your frame, I count at least five on one side.

Hope this helps.

Other than the ticking sound is there any problem? The gearing is planetary and has its own 'normal' sounds depending on what ratio is selected.

Maybe it needs specific tweaking.

Trying to install Sunlite HD tourer rear carrier #45772. on a Rand 18 speed. There are no holes for front brackets in frame. Do you just drill the holes?

Never drill holes in a bike frame unless you have a death wish. "Rand 18-speed" doesn't tell us much. Most cheapo bike frames have a 'brake bridge' with a hole on the center for mounting accessories like fenders. Many racks can mount with a single rather than double front supports.. Lacking that, call a bike shop or web search for "bicycle seatstay rack clamps" to adapt the rack to attach to the seat stays.

Sunlite also makes a seatpost rack mount which looks like a more elegant way to solve the problem.

I have some space between the rear axle and the bearing hub on my Raleigh M40. Can you tell me if you have both an axle and the the bearings hubs for each side?

We don't supply parts. Advice. Take the wheel to a bicycle shop for an assessment as the parts are not universal among the different hub makers.

My pedal has somehow broken inside and now it spins freely without moving the chain

Being a mechanical problem that we can't see you will need to define it better to us or yourself.

I'm sure if you looked at it closer you would see that the pedal itself is supposed to spin freely while it turns on the crank which turns the chainring which transfers motion through the chain to the gear(s) on the right side of the rear wheel which drive the wheel forward.

Now, where do you think the breakdown really is?

Any search engine would then offer definitions and solutions to a well-crafted query like "bicycle chain slipping" or "bicycle gear slipping".

My daughter has a Schwinn Sidewinder 26" mountain bike. The chain keeps jumping from the rear sprockets to a smaller sprocket under power. I have noticed that the rear sprocket set "wobbles"...

It's loose on the hub. Special tools are required to tighten them. Bike Shops have them and will possibly perform the repair for less than the cost of the tools.

Then check the shifting...

Word to the wise: don't buy bicycles from anywhere but a professional bicycle shop. Box stores don't usually have the skills for proper assembly, setup or follow-up.
