The wheel isn't centred correctly is my bet. Looking at the bike from behind, is the wheel pointing straight ahead, or is it off to one side? Common mistake to either not put it back in straight, or not tight enough, and the chain tension when you pedal will pull the wheel off centre.

Any Mongoose dealer or bicycle shop should be able to handle that or just web search for a 20" BMX wheel. It doesn't appear to be unique.

Visually determine where the unavoidable resistance is originating. Does the rear wheel spin ok? Tire rubbing? Bearings frozen?

YOU need to assess if something is rubbing somewhere or the bearings are shot. Remounting the wheel correctly will solve the rubbing issue and probably eliminate a dangerous condition.


If the latterer, decide if repair or replacement is the better avenue. A bicycle shop could repair/relube the bearings faster and cheaper than locating a matching wheel.

some bikes are like that. The rear wheel only spins with the pedals. Try pedaling backwards and see if the wheel goes back. If it does then that is normal.

Back tire changing on mongoose gravity games bike. How do you change the back tire in this bike? It is very hard and confusing. I don't know how to do it. I need help.


If you have pegs on the back you will need a deep socket to fit the nut and a socket extender and a socket wrench. with the wheel off it is just the same as changing any other bike tire. Just make sure you check the inside of the tire carefully for anything poking through that may puncture your new tube. Also check to see if you need a new tire and make sure you inflate the repaired tire to the correct pressure or you may get a pinch flat.
