Question about Mongoose 20" Raid Freestyle BMX Bicycle/Bike

Bike Doesn't Peddle Right

When I peddle the bike, on the back rim. The long screw part that goes through the rim and is connected to the gear part to make the wheel spin when you peddle the bike as the chain. So, I realize that between the screw and the gear no longer catch and help aid the wheel to spin. So my question is, since I like the style of the rims on the bike and I don't want to go to some random bike shop and buy a different set of rims. Can I buy the same kind of rim somewhere that's cheap? and reliable?

I would suggest any bike shop can help you but if you have to have same ones go to craigslist, you may not find them because they aren't a high end product. i may be wrong i' haven't seen anything but complete bikes being sold by that company, actually they don't even make the rims its a components company like shamonno. If you want something close go online to dans comp, its a retailer you can get great deals from, i just like going to bike shop and seeing them, paying and bringing them home. don't forget that they may have a used set for sell, most bike shops would not be selling a used set unless they new they were in good condition.

SOURCE: freewheel spins both ways cant peddle no were how

The freewheel has a ratchet pawl (an internal, spring loaded lever) that would normally engage gear teeth in one direction and click over them in the other direction. This is just like the action of a ratchet wrench. You might have a broken spring or broken pawl - in which case you will have to replace the freewheel---- Or it might just be dirty. Spray some WD 40 inside it (spray through the small gap between the round part that moves and the round part that doesn't. If that doesn't work, you'll have to replace it.

The bike slips when peddle.

If the bike has gearing I would get your shifters checked to make sure everything is lined up properly and the shift points are set properly. if they are not it can cause the chain to drop off a gear only to shift back up on next rotation of the pedals.

Why is my bike broken

Most likely the problem is the bearing in the rear wheel. Your best solution is to find a different rear wheel as replacing the one there will be difficult if you don't have the sprocket removal tool. 7_16_2013_10_14_46_pm.jpg

How do I adjust the brakes, I tired tightening the bolts, to no avail

most likely that's because the brakes have become more worn. adjusting the knob on the handbar won't help at all. what you need to do is to flip the bike upside down. then take a wrench/ratchet to the brakes themselves right over the tire. just loosen the small nut holding them in place, and bring the brake pads in closer to the rim. be careful that they aren't touching the rim however by turning each wheel after the adjustments. after you're finished, you can peddle the bike in that upside down position using your hand, and then test the brakes by pulling the brake levers.
i hope this has been of some assistance. have a good evening.

Most peddles have to simply be replaced when the bolt is damaged. There is no way to replace the part. They have new peddles for all kinds of bikes at your local bike shop.

Repair peddle on Huffy Incline 26

Try screwing it on by hand in both directions as one peddle screws in clockwise and the other anti-clockwise. If this still does not work look at the thread on the peddle and see if it looks threaded (damaged). If it does then you need a new peddle or set of peddles and a visit to your local bike shop can confirm this for you.

Left peddel is stripped will not stay on

If it is the peddle that is threaded and not the crank then all you need to do is replace the peddle. Take the peddle off and look at the thread both on the peddle and inside the crank. Any bike shop can look at this for you and can order you in a set of new peddles or, if the crank is to blame you can order these easy enough online.
