How to Shorten a Bike Chain?


You need to buy a link extractor, really really cheap.
Check the chain for a fast release link, they look different from the other links and pop it open or remove the sliding clip.
Figure out how much chain you want to remove then lay it in the link machine, lining up the link pin with the tip of the screw plunger and turn the screw plunger pin (it may be difficult at first but pile on the pressure and it will push the pin out)
Reattach the fast link to both ends of the chain and it's done.

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.


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.

My grandsons bike chain broke. Went to the store to buy a new chain. On the back of the package it said I needed a chain rivet extractor and of course, the store didn't carry that tool. How can I fix...


You should go to a bike shop, they can sell you a master link, and keep your own chain. Is your grandson's bike a 1 speed or a multi speed bike, if it is multi then you need a chain tool. Bike shops can do the job cheaper than you can buy the tool and it will be done right. Take the chain back to the store that didn't carry the tool.

I need to take apart a bike chain then reattach it how do i do that?


there should be one link with a slight different color, depending on the type of link, there may be a clip, or you need to punch a pin out, to reassemble squeeze the pin back in with multi grips

I need to know how to adjust the chain tension


The only way to adjust the "tension" of the chain is to remove links. You will need a chain breaker tool. Shift the bike into the biggest chain ring and the biggest cog of the cassette, then break the chain, leaving the pin partially in the link but far enough out that the chain separates. Now, pull the chain together so that the rear derailleur's arm is as horizontal as possible and aiming toward the crank. Break the appropriate link to connect the chain so the derailleur stays in that position and reattach the chain using the pin you left partially engaged.

i hope this helps

Problem with chain and gears


Wash, degrease and scrub the chain and derailleurs with a good degreaser (like Simple Green). Dry the chain and relubricate it with an appropriate bike chain lubricant (not oil or WD-40). Shift the derailleurs to the smallest chain ring and cog on the cassette (low front gear, high rear gear) and then loosen the cable at the derailleurs, pull the cables taut and reattach them. If the derailleurs still need adjustment, here is a procedure for it:
Flip the bike over (so you can pedal the bike manually while you shift) and shift the front to the middle chain ring. Shift the rear to the highest gear (small cog). Release the cable from the pinch bolt on the derailleur. Adjust the screw marked "H" on the derailleur until the jockey wheel on the derailleur is aligned perfectly over the small cassette cog. Set the cable adjuster on the derailleur to the middle of its range (find this by screwing it all the way in and then count how many revolutions it makes until it screws out completely. Screw it back in one half of the total revolutions). Reattach the cable and shift to the lowest gear (the biggest cog). Over-shift and hold on the shifter, then adjust the "L" screw on the derailleur until the jockey wheel sits just past the last cog. You have to hold the shifter to do this. Now shift into the middle gear (or one of the two middle gears if the bike has an even number of gears) and adjust the derailleur using the barrel adjuster you previously set to the middle of its range. Adjust it so that the derailleur is sitting perfectly over the appropriate gear. Shift up and down the cassette while pedaling and in every gear, reverse pedal (freewheel) to make sure the chain does not hop. Adjust as necessary until all gears are smooth.
Now the front:
Set the rear derailleur to the lowest gear (big cog) and the front to the lowest gear (small chain ring). Disconnect the derailleur cable. Screw in the adjuster for the cable tension all the way (this adjuster is on the shifter of a mountain bike or the down tube of a road bike). Pedal to make sure the chain is not rubbing on the derailleur cage. If it is, adjust the "L" setting on the derailleur until the chain moves by without touching the cage. Now pull taut and reattch the cable and shift the front to the big ring while pedaling. If it does not shift up well or completely, hold the shifter past its normal shift and adjust the "H" screw so that the derailleur allows the shift. Shift into the highest cassette gear and keep pedaling. The chain should not be touching the front derailleur's cage when you pedal. Adjust with the barrel adjuster until the chain moves freely without touching the derailleur cage.
That should be it, unless there is another mechanical problem causing the missed shifts, like a bent derailleur hanger or damaged teeth on the cassette cogs or a bad derailleur. If it is still problematic, come back for further information.

i hope this helps

Gears not working right


must be more specific as to just what kind of bike and what is going on with your gears!

Rear wheel huffy bicycle white disc that connects to the spokes is out of line. Need to re-attatch it.


If you are talking about the plastic disk that attaches to your spokes, this is one of those parts that looks nice on the bike, but is not 100% necessary for safe operation of the bike. This disk is used to protect the chain from falling in-between the spokes and the gears.

If you need to reattach this, this should snap into the spokes without issue. If the clips that hold it are broken (as they often become) you can either learn to live with it, or take it to a bike shop to get the gear cassette removed and the part replaced. This is one of those cases where the tool you will need is more expensive than the part you will be replacing, so in my humble opinion, it is not worth the expense.

Hope this helps!
