Most training wheel kits come with directions in the kit. Do one side of the bike at a time. Start with the left side and when tightening the nut back up make sure the rear wheel is still centered in the fork . When you do the right side it is the same but you have to make sure the chain stays in adjustment as well as the wheel being centered. Usually you have to remove the nut on the side that you are working on. The kit should come with a little bar with a hole in it that fits over the bolt that you just removed the nut from. Make sure that the flat side faces out and the protrusions on the bar fit into the slots on the fork. Next mount the bar with the training wheels on the bike over the first bar. Put the washer supplied in the kit over that and then screw the nut back on. Pay attention to the wheel being centered and the chain being tight enough not to slip off the crank when pedalling. Make sure you get the proper size for the bicycle. There is a video here that explains it

Bought a 16 inch rosebud girls bike. No kickstand was in the box. Are you suppose to lay it down when u are through riding?

Apparently. They come with training wheels so how would they fall over? You could go to a Bike Shop and see if they have small kickstands for it when the training wheels come off. None of MY bikes have kickstands (or training wheels). Teach her to lay it down gently on its left side.

Hello, I bought my little girl the huffy 12in disney princess bike (blue) already assembled from walmart. she tried to ride it today, but when she pedals the back wheel spins, but the training wheels and...

ONE AT A TIME, loosen the nuts securing the training wheels to the rear axle and slide each one upward a little bit so it float a little bit off the ground when the bike is vertical, then retighten the nut.

As she develops her handling and balance skills she'll need less help from the training wheel. So you can gradually raise them a bit higher as she masters balance and then she'll develop the 'lean' for turning. Ultimately, you remove them entirely.

I hope she's wearing a properly-fitted helmet.

20 inch Slumber party bicycle will not accept training wheels? Rear threaded axle is not long enough to allow for training wheels (that i cna find)

Yes you can add training wheels to this bike. The origional axle is too short, however, if you are mechanical enough, you can remove the axle and buy a longer one. I did this for my daughters bike, and for abot 5 dollars you can pick up a longer axle which will accept training wheels. But be warned, there are several bearings and you need to place them back in the correct position or the bike will not work.

The training wheels won't reach the ground. I loosened them and lowered as much as possible and theare still above the back tire and will not touch the ground at the same time

The training wheels are not meant to be as low as the back wheel. The idea is that the child learns to balance the bike but if it goes over to one side the training wheel touches the ground and stops the bike from falling

I insralled training wheels, but now the chain does not move, why?

I'd look for unwanted contact between the hardware attaching the training wheels rear wheel nuts and the chain, wheel, gear or tire.

I suspect a screw is a tad too long.

Install training wheels

when installing the training wheels, check to see if it is put together in this order ....flat washer, training wheel, flat washer, lock washer, nut. I hope this helps. If you are missing any of these you can find them at any auto parts store, Wal-mart, or hardware store such as Lowe's or Home Depot. (Be sure to take the traing wheel and nut to make sure you have the right size)

Where to purchase new training wheels for the dynacraft barbie 16 inch bike? st. pete, fl

I see at least 7 bicycle shops in your area. The training wheels don't have to be made by the same company that made the bicycle. Phone around to the various shops and give them the same info you posted here. If you don't feel comfortable installing them yourself the shop you choose will be able to install them easily. Please let me know if this helps.

Make sure you follow the directions carefully. You might try leaving the flat washers out or substituting thinner ones. Worse case you will have to go to a bicycle shop and purchase a longer axle. Make sure you keep careful track of how you disassembled it and take pictures or make drawings. The hardest part with replacing an axle is getting the proper resistance on both sides so the bearings don't bind. Check for some helpful articles.
