Why does the Secondary Chain keep comming of?

Any time a chain comes off it means there's slack in it or something's not tight enough. Not looking at your bike, I would have to guess that you need to loosen the bolts on the back wheels and then pull the wheel assemblies back until the chain is tight. This is probably a two person job, one to unbolt and bolt and one to apply tension. That being said, many years ago I remember bikes my friends used had a problem where if they were riding at a good speed and then stopped peddling to coast, then slightly reversed peddling, then started fast peddling again, that they would throw a chain. I think what was happening was they were creating slack in the chain by coasting, slightly reversing their peddling, then starting again. The chains were also slightly gummed up, allowing slack at this time.

Regardless of what gear it's in, my Zike Saber chain slips as I step on the pedals. How do I solve this?

the saber zike is a elliptical bicycle. All answers above think you have a motorcycle or they have no clue. Is the chain on the sprocket, It seems to be off the gear. Zike recomends switching 1 gear at a time. Do not go from 7th to first gear in one shift or chain will come off the gear .It happened to me .Chain id not easy to put back on as a bike, that you can turn upside down and have it support itself on the seat and handlebars. The saber you must hold the back wheel off the ground and try somehow to turn the peddle backwards. I am not sure how to make an elliptical chain go backwards like a bike does without resistance.

When riding the peddles slip,it appears that the chain is engaged and that the axle is slipping and make s the peddles spin, not engaged

If this is a coaster brake bike (single speed, no hand brakes) then the problem might be inside the rear wheel hub. If that is the case then you can only fix it by completely dis-assembling the rear wheel hub - or it might be simply that the chain is slipping, which would not happen unless the chain is too loose which would be indicated by the bottom of the chain hanging down too low. However, if this is a multi-speed bike, then it could be that the chain and rear-wheel cogs are worn - which can be fixed by replacing the freewheel and the chain - however, it takes a lot of use or rust and dirt before that level of wear happens.

I was rideing when all of a sudden I heard a POP sound and my peddles wouldn't peddle any more! peddles free wheel like the chain is off but it is not!......when I spin the Back wheel forward,...

Possibly. The pawls probably exploded. Not knowing what type of rear wheel/hub you have it's impossible to say but a Bike Shop would spot the cause in a heartbeat. The repair may involve something as simple as a spritz of lube in the right places to a complete new rear wheel (as hub replacement involves a lot of labor rebuilding the wheel and may not make economical sense).

Take it to a shop for a look-see.

I want to fix my friend bike, it skipps when she peddles, the chain wont stay on and the back wheel is wobbly. what can i do?

check that the back wheel is fitted correctly. is it wobbly becasue it is buckled, or because it is not tight onto the bike.

if the wheel is buckled then it should go to a store to be straitened depends on how bad it is .

if not put bike upside down and undo the back wheel nuts a little, push the back wheel back as far as it will go without over tightening the chain and making sure it is central to the frame tighten the bolts back up. watch to make sure it is not slipping.

then put it into a middle gear and turn the peddles if you hear rattling in the chain or it changes gear use a small screw driver to set the changer to the middle of the got and it should be quieter in gear.

also do this for the front changer and make sure it doens not go to far our as this will pull the chain off.

if not sure take it to a bike store and ask advise they will tell you whant can be done and how much it would cost.

I hope this was useful

My chain snapped and I fixed that. But exactly how is the chain threaded through the Shimano rear derailleur? What is the correct path over and under the 2 jockey wheels? I cannot find a diagram that shows...

It will entail taking the chain apart again (known as "breaking" the chain).
The chain feeds UNDER the lower cog on the derailleur, BETWEEN the 2 cogs, and OVER the top one... then BEHIND the gear cluster and back OVER it. Run the other end AROUND the front chainwheels, through the front derailleur and re-connect. You may find it helpful to lay the bike on its side (sprockets up) and have someone hold rear derailleur to keep tension off the chain.e86da85.jpg
Good luck to you.

Putting the cahin back on???duh???

If the chain has just slipped of the best way get it back on is to physically lift it into place at the top of the chain ring (the cog where the pedals are).
Then turn the pedals in the direction you would usually pedal (you may have to lift the back wheel off the ground).
This ought to pull the chain back on and let you get back on the open road.

My son has a Dunlop disc26 dual disk bike and the chain has come off. I can't see how to loosen it sufficiently to put it back - any ideas? The chain seems to be trapped between the bike frame and the...

To put the chain back on your do not need to loosen anything. First turn the bike over so it is resting on its seat and handle bars. Then get your fingers under the chain to one side of where it is stuck. Next lift the chain and pull it out from between the frame and the plastic guard. Now that the chain is free you will want to make sure that the chain is running around one of the rear cogs, then run the chain around the top of the front cog and slowly turn the peddles so that the chain can be fed onto the cog. It will seem very tight but will fit on just right. Then spin the peddles a few more times to get the chain find the gear it was in before the chain came off.
