Traditionally the front. Some units are wireless, but have a minimal range and cannot transmit through the riders obstruction. Most cabel harnesses will route up the front brake line.

If you are desiring it to work on a "trainer", its best to invest in a cadence (crank arm rpm)sensor. Your speed is not as important on the trainer, but monitoring your cadence in relation to your heart rate is key.

Replace the spokes on my huffy 18 speed 27 inch bicycle


building and truing wheels is a specialized skill that takes a lot of practice. Most manufacturers use robots to build the wheels to save on labor costs. To have a human build a wheel can cost more than $50 per wheel for the labor. Spokes retail for about $1-$2 a piece and include a brass nipple. Spokes also come in different gauges. Most bike shops that sell spokes usually only carry a few sizes in stainless steel.



If you are only replacing one or two spokes you can take the broken spoke to a bike shop and they can measure it and hopefully have the right size in stock to sell you a replacement. Use the right size spoke wrench for your spokes to unscrew the nipple from the broken spoke, you will then be able to remove (spokes can be very flexible and will bend a lot to get them out of the hub). Observe the adjacent spokes and the lacing pattern to re-install the spoke in the hub and thread it into the new nipple that came with the replacement spoke. Put the wheel back in the frame and use the brake pads as a reference guide to tighten and true the adjacent spoke nipples until the wheel no longer rubs on the brake pads and you are satisfied.



My personal opinion is that on a Huffy, it is faster, cheaper and easier to buy a replacement wheel from your local bike shop for $35-$45. The spokes, rims and hubs used on Huffy's are of very low quality (most don't even use stainless steel spokes) and a new replacement wheel from your local bike shop (LBS) will be ten times better than trying to fix the old original equipment, IMHO.

Best solution to a wheel that's wobbling all over the place because it's missing spokes: Replace the wheel. Why? Straightening a wheel that's messed up because it's missing a few spokes is a difficult art.
Next best solution: Bring the wheel to a bike shop and ask them to replace the missing spokes and true the wheel. Why? See above.
If you insist on having a whack at it, you can remove the wheel by loosening the axle nuts and slipping the wheel out of the frame. You may need to remove a brake pad to get the tire past the brake assembly. Then take the wheel to your friendly neighborhood bike shop and ask them to remove the freewheel assembly from the hub (it requires a special tool that you don't have). Buy some spokes and nipples while you're at the shop. Be very nice to the bike shop people because they'll likely be the folks you'll come back to when you decide you need a new wheel. Once you have the spokes in and the wheel is straight (good luck with that), you can replace the gear cluster without the tool the shop used to take it off, since the freewheel doesn't freewheel in the direction you turn it to put it back on. Good luck!

Trek spokes sze


I could not find the spoke size online so you should probably take a wheel to the bike shop and ask them. They should not charge you for that. Unless you REALLY know what you are doing, I do NOT recommend you tampering with the wheels of you bike. The wheels are one of the most delicate parts of a bike particularly the spokes. If you dont feel compterable altering your wheels, have the bike shop take care of it. It is easier to pay a little more for labor up front than to try it yourself, mess up and have to replace more parts than originally needed plus labor.

You want to make sure the magnet on the front wheel is being picked by the receiver on the fork. Sometimes that magnet attached to the spoke will move on the spoke so that it no longer closely passes by the receiver. If the magnet has been lost, check with you can check with your local bike shop for an extra.

Broken spokes on rear wheel


It is not that hard to replace a few broken shokes. All you have to do is take the rim off the bike and take the tire off of the rim. Install the new spokes and tighted them to the specs and put everything back on the bike and take it for a ride. After riding, I would check the spokes and retight to make sure there ready for your next ride.

Can you teach me how to tiet the spokes to the rim?


If you are meaning how do you tighten the spokes, you'll first need a spoke spanner.(you can get one from a bike shop if you havn't got one).
Next raise the wheel you want to adjust off the ground.
Next, if they are all a little loose,mark one spoke with some tape.Starting at that spoke you marked tighten each one an eighth of a turn till you get back to the tape marked spoke.
Next, tape a small piece of plastic(I use a zip-tie) to the L/H fork leg(for a front wheel) or the L/H side of the swing arm(for a rear wheel) so its nearly touching the rim.
Now slowly rotate the wheel & watch the gap between the rim & the zip-tie to see that the wheel is true.
If the gap gets bigger stop there & loosen the spokes(one quarter of a turn) on the rim that are on the R/H side at that spot & thghten the spokes that are next to the zip-tie. This effectivly pulls the rim across
& reduces the gap. This is called trueing the rim.
The gap(run-out) can be 2 to 3 mm and that is ok.
Hope this helps.
If you ment how do you replace the spokes then this is much more tricky. I suggest you go to an expert but if you really must do it yourself you'll have to tell me what sort of bike, which weel(front or rear) it is plus the year/model & i'll try & talk you through it.(but it WONT BE EASY)

Shimmy in the front end at speeds of 45 to 50 and above 65 on deacceleration. Never had the problem before and the bike is an 08 and about 2500 miles


Check that all nuts and bolts that fasten the front lower forks to the wheel axle are tight and in good shape. Also the front tire may have a shifted belt which is difficult to diagnose but can cause the symptom you are describing. If you ran over a pot hole or nasty bump the rim may be bent. While driving the bike try to look down at the front wheel to observe any warpage on the rim if the rim is bent bring it to a motorcycle repair shop they can tighten the spokes in a way that will straighten the rim.

Front wheel wobbles


More than likely the wheel is out of true. There are 2 choices,

1 Buy a spoke wrench and attemp to true the wheel. You can do this by spinning the wheel to locate the spot where the wheel goes furthest to one side then tighten the spoke coming from the opposite side. Do this slowly 1/2 turn at a time. Do not over tighten the spoke. It may be necessary to loosen the other side slightly.

Alternate spokes between both sides of wobble.

2 Take bike to a good local bike shop to be tuned and have the wheels trued. Most shops offer a tune up at low cost. A well tuned bike will last a long time.
