The answer below may be correct, but too little info provided. Do the crank and the rear gears turn around without propelling the bike, and how many cogs/gears are there on the rear of the bike? It is unlikely that you would have to replace the hub, and the rear cluster of gears on a multispeed bike is called either a freewheel or cassette.

Perhaps there is a gear with stripped thread where it attaches to the sprocket or the sprocket itself with stripped thread? In any of these cases, the whole sprocket should be replaced and in the second case the sprocket and hub. This accounts only for 6 or 7 gear sprockets.

Dynacraft Girls 16" Barbie Bike pedals don't move


The problem could be the coaster brake hub, it could be that the cranks are not properly adjusted, or any number of other weird things. My advise--take it to a bike shop. If they're kind, they should be able to get things moving in the proper circular motion quickly for a reasonable charge. If they're not kind, they'll laugh at the bike first, but they will still help.

My Cranbrook bike makes a clanking noise when I pedal it.


You need to evaluate wuith your eyes and ears what moving parts are contacting other parts of the bike in an undesireable way. So, what moves when you pedal it? The crank and chain.

Bought a sunny pro indoor cycling bike sf-b901. left pedal wont thread into crank, csn sending crank but i cannot get crank off of bike. how can i do this


Try turning it in in the opposite direction. Bike pedals are reverse threaded which some people will miss when they are putting different pedals. Otherwise try starting the pedal at a slight angle, this may be enough to get the thread started.

Hi, my daughter pricess bike won't ride. am not what is wrong. newly prchsed and assemble. please can you help?


will the pedals move forward? they should cause the chain to move and the crank in the back to cause the wheel to spin, if this isnt happening, look at the chain and make sure its correctly on both sprockets, if the pedals still wont spin, they may be too tight on the crank.

Son's can pedal 12" bike


Yes, something isn't turning freely. It's either the front wheel, the back wheel, or the pedals and chain. Lift the bike off the ground and turn the front wheel by hand. If it doesn't turn very freely, it could be the hand-brake is dragging or the hub bearing is too tight. Try the back wheel in both directions. It should move freely in the forward direction. When rolling it backwards it is normal for the pedals to move too if this bike has a coaster brake (that is the kind of brake that is applied by pushing the pedals backwards.) It the back wheel moves forward freely, but backwards is a problem, then try the pedals by hand with the rear wheel off the ground. If this doesn't turn freely, the pedal crank bearing (a.k.a. bottom bracket) is too tight. Once you have identified the problem take it back to where you got it. It should be easy to fix, or they should replace it.

My bike does not seem to shift gears should I be cruising as I shift or should I be pedaling


Your bike must not be the Cruiser pictured - that's a one-speed bike. So here's a general description--- For gear changes on multi-speed bikes, where the chain has to move between different size sprockets, the chain must be moving in order to shift. So, yes, you have to be pedaling, but it works best if you pedal very lightly - so that the chain is moving, but is under very light pressure. On the other hand, if you have a 3-speed bike where the gear changes take place inside the hub of the rear wheel, the wheel should be moving, but the chain should not - so you should be coasting to change gears.

My daughters 2 wheeler bike. The pedals spin but ...


There is no trick or latch.
check the chain is sitting on the rear sprocket. If this is correct, and you are turning the pedal crank forwards, it must be damaged

take the bike back for warranty repair

Pedals move freely


If the pedal is moving too free,but the bike are still moiving forward, it simply mean you are using to low a gear .

Try changing to a high enough gear to satisfy your required tension. Be advised that,
You will also increase your speed,and decrease your hill climbing in the process though.

Rear wheel problem


Take the wheel off the bike. take the outer two nuts & washers off. You will then have another set of nuts. You should only beable to get eathier a 1/2 or 9/16 wrench on the inner nuts. Then tighten those nuts. Not too tight, just snug. Replace the wheel on the bike, replace the washers & nuts and tighten those tight.
You should beable to pedal.
You did'nt say if this is a single speed, 3sp, 10sp or 15sp. If you have additional gears, then you may have to reallign the cam for shifting.
