SOURCE: I have a huffy cave creek 21 gripshift bike w.

Trying to fix the module on the grip-shift is always a waste of time. The best thing to do is replace the shifter.

The shifter pulls the cable tight toward the shifter and uses a rachet mechanism to insure the chain is always in alignment under one gear and does not fall between two gears (like the original multi-sproket bikes from the 1970''s and 80s).

The derailer near the sproket has a spring to pull the cable back for the smaller diameter gears when the shifter is turned the other way.

The light-weight pastic gears and rachet mechanism in the twist grip tend to strip and fail. The small plastic gears are not available as replacement parts except for the highest end shifters (trigger shifters). The twist shifters are considered low-end to mid-range and replacement parts were never available that I remember.

To replace the twist grip, make notes how the cable routes to the corresponding derailer. Detach the cable near the derailer and pull it through to the shifter. Remove the shifter from the handgrip. Pullt he cable through. Pull the cable though the new shifter and mount it onto the handgrip. Route the cable through the rest of the frame as needed (see notes you made earlier). Adjust the cable to just tight enough to keep the derailer above the sproket indicated on the shifter. You may need a pair of locking pliers to hold the cable tight before locking downt the nut on the derailer. There is a fine adjustment screw on the derailer to make final adjustments if needed (they usually are).

Shifters are available at most bicylce stores. You can also find many fairly new bikes on craiglist that you can strip for parts (as little as $25 for the bike). Sometimes they are given away for free on craigslist and you may find an exact replacment - we did!).

Shifters from the bike shops cost $20 to $50 for a Huffy (depending on the bike store).

Good luck, I hope I understood what you wanted from your question.

How do i fix the rear sprocket on my huffy rock it bicycle

on all single speed bikes, it has been my experience, that chain tension is the reason for the chain to come off, try tightening it again, since this seems to keep happening the chain may be stretched out now and replacing the chain and getting it tight should solve the issue.

How to fix my huffy rock it bicycle

Sounds like you may not tightening it down tight. should have about 1/2 play in it. If that dont do it you might look at the sprockets ( bent or missing teeth ) or may need a new chain. Hope that helps you. Good luck. Vern

Stem and handlebar stripped

The bolt should be replaced from a spare at a bike shop and tightened to the specified torque for safety. The turning tube should be checked for damage and that it can turn freely. The last thing you want is steering locking up or a separating handle bar while cycling at 40 km/h!

My Huffy Rock Creeks left crank is really loose. Looks like its missing a spacer or something. Where do i get one?

this is the side with out the chain ring, it should use a Allen wrench or socket wrench. if this is a mountain bike or road bike a crank arm it usually takes a crank breaker tool to remove arms so if it is loose it sounds like it should be replaced. anyway if it does come off, clean it with any cleaning solution and put grease on the bottom bracket<if you don't have grease you can use Crisco or petroleum jelly> put crank arm back on and then tighten bolt back. this is for a three peace crank, if it is a one peace then its a matter of tightening bolts.
