You have a problem with the gear cassette, the weldings or the connecting rod broke. If it's a brand new pair and you just bought it, I would go back to the shop and have them replace it with a new pair.
Good Luck and ride safely.

SOURCE: operator manual for huffy crosswind bike grip shift

Look for the manufacturers name and model number on the gripshift and check at www.parktool.com. Look under derailleurs for repair tips which will give you an idea how they work. A twelve speed has six gears on the rear sprocket and two on the crank giving you a combination of twelve speeds. sheldonbrown.com is another good site with good articles and pictures.

SOURCE: Chain Broke on a Huffy

if the bike has gears it does not have a master link, that is for single speed bikes only.

You will need an 8spd chain for your bike (1/2" x 3/32), these will fit any 6,7 or 8 spd bike. This requires a special tool to install ($8-$25), I would recommend taking into a bike shop and have them do it if you have no experience with this type of chain.

Side note: if you do own the tool, you can repair a broken chain for a temporary fix in the future, so may be worth buying. Check around, many bike shops offer basic repair classes and cover this.

Have a "Stridor" ten speed


Sorry, it takes a special wrench. You can try a hammer and punch and try to knock it loose. It is a reverse thread. It is called a cassette wrench, here is a picture. This may not be the exact one to fit your bike, but it will look similar to this. They only cost about $5 - 6 dollars. Not hard to find here on the net. Start with a good bicycle parts site. Sounds like You will need to replace the cassette (gear assy)mcneb_6.gif

How is the "ten speed"


I am answering, but hoping this is not a trick question. ALL Bikes from that time period had two shifters, one the speed gears and one to represent the Hi-Low Function of the gears. In other works, when shifter one was move, it moved the chain on the front sprocket to the Low Gear ratio, Which would translate on the rear 5 piece sprocket as gears 1-5. These were change by slightly moving the second shifter, which in turn would move the chain a slight bit and onto the next sprocket in the line. You could go in any combination of gears from 5th to 1st from 1st to 6th, all by moving the correct level, which would move the appropriate chain guide and mode the chain to the correct sprocket. Let me know if that helps at all. I tried to remove the technical in order to keep it simple. I can make it harder and more technical if you would like.

If you are trying to get to a certain answer, please do not hesitate to ask any question, other than where to get parts, cause that part of Huffy's business is no more and Huffy, really isn't the same Huffy as was in 1989. No really, different organization all together, they basically sold the name and ops.

I don't have a manual. The bike is older, it is a Huffy Blades, Hampton Cruiser. I don't know how to use the gears. Can I find instructions on-line? Thank you


Hello,

I try to find some, but it is pretty simple. It is probbly a 10-speed...you don't say. On a typical 10-speed, it has a lever for the front sprocket and a lever for the rear. The front ususally has 2 choices and the rear 5 choices.Some just have 10 sprockets on the rear.

The thing to remember is that the bigger the sprocket...the harder it is to peddle. When going uphill you need to use the smaller sprockets.

I did find this general guide for Huffy multi-geared bikes:

Thanks for using Fixya.

I am trying to fix a Huffy Blackwater bicycle (15 speed). The rear derailleur is missing. Can I use a 6 speed derailleur from a Next bike? Can I disable the indexing of the Huffy (Falcon) shifter? Thanks


You can use the 6 speed rear derailleur with no problems. The 5-spd shifter does not need to be disabled, as it will work just fine.

The shifter controls the rear derailleur, telling it how far to move. The rear derailluer just follows what is dictated, so there is no real difference mechanically between the 5spd and 6spd derailleurs, only in the shifter.

If you wanted to make the bike 6spd, you would have to change the shifter and gears along with the derailleur.

Chain Broke on a Huffy Tundra 18 speed 26" bike. I need to know the size chain to replace or the master link/chain connector to fix the chain.

Making the bike from a 18-speed to a 1 speed bike


single speed bikes have a single ratchet or fixed sprocket with no offset of the spokes, so you would probable need another rear wheel.
Another derailleur is probably simpler, try ebay
