You will have to replace the axle and repack new bearings a huge greasy mess buy new back wheel. if you are jumping that bike does not come with strong enough wheels for hard riding. if you upgrade the back wheel you can always keep it for your next bike, like an investment in your happiness.

SOURCE: 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.

The wheel isn't centred correctly is my bet. Looking at the bike from behind, is the wheel pointing straight ahead, or is it off to one side? Common mistake to either not put it back in straight, or not tight enough, and the chain tension when you pedal will pull the wheel off centre.

Try shifting your weight to the center of the road side of the seat and steering slightly towards the center of the road. You might have to adjust your seat down slightly to give you a lower center of gravity. Unfortunately roads aren't particularly designed with enough width on the shoulders. If you are an older person, you may be able to get away with riding on the sidewalks unless there is a bylaw or law which prevents you from doing so. Just be really courteous to the pedestrians.

How can the drive and driven sprockets be aligned?

Hi Charles
I'd be looking at the positioning of the rear axle. A small change in the angle could line up the sprockets.
If the rim is centred in the frame right next to the pedal sprocket, the sprockets should be in alignment. If they are not, I'd be thinking that the frame has been bent, and be trying to figure out where, and how to straighten it.
Odds are that one of the cycle shops would have a quick look and give some advice. Those guys are usually really great with helping keep riding enjoyable.

All the bike is aluminiun

Mongoose is the run of the mill brand on the utilitarian side. They are a perfect step for a kid or an adult getting into biking. All aluminum is great because it is so light weight but that is pretty much the normal material for bikes these days. If you become a serious biker you will find out what you do and do not need by riding a Mongoose.

Rubbing/grinding sound in front end/ drivetrain

from your description it is possible that the low brake pad warning tag is activated indicating tat the brake pads are worn out
it is a small tag that rubs on the disc just before the pads damage the rotor
as sound travels it could be a rear wheel with the problem
to check , take the vehicle to an accredited brake specialist shop and have the pad thickness checked
to be safe the thickness has to be 1/8 " or better

Hi...just put together my son's new Bike (20'' Boys' Mongoose Rebel Freestyle Bike) and I noticed that when pedaling backwards, it's not smooth, and sounds like something is rubbing or grinding (pedaling...

It sounds as though the chain is too tight. Check to see when it is "freewheeled" if the chain gets tighter. Generally this will happen because the chain ring (front sprocket) was not perfectly aligned with the "spider" (thing it bolts to). You can loosen the chain a little and see if this helps. Be careful because you don't want it so loose the it comes off while riding. What I usually do is adjust the tension of the chain with the sprocket in the tight spot. Kind of tight but without the "grinding" feeling.
Good luck.

I am not sure if the wheel bearing on the front end is broke. it makes a loud poping noise when turning and the wheel is towed in

Loud popping/grinding most noticeably heard when turning is normally a sign of a bad CV joint. Look under the van where the axle half-shafts come out of the transaxle and connect to the backside of the wheel assembly. Are the rubber boots on the axles torn or missing?
If you hear the popping only in left turns, your right CV joint is bad, If you hear the popping only in right turns, your left CV joint is bad.

Mine did this, it never got fixed, repairman told me to replace it. I suggest you do the same. He told me the springs and bumpers had just worn out, and from the looks of my old washer, he was right lol
