Probably not. I suggest looking at the Nagaoka web site for information. Also you may check with the dealer who sells this brand in your area

SOURCE: push bike tire

Inner tubes commonly lose air when stored for as little as a couple of months and quicker when cold. They also tend to dry out and leak as fast as you can pump. Replacement tubes are available at bike shops and even less than $6.00 bucks at Wal-Mart.

To replace(The long version,cause the short version not good):
Remove wheel from bike, trike, trailer, etc. and deflate tube completely. You will need 2 box end wrenches (the ones with the closed ends, because these are not sharp). Insert box end of wrenches next to each other between rim and and one wall of tire, now pry the wrenches back so as to pry one wall of tire to the outside of rim, now alternatingwrenches, slide wrenches away from each other to slowly walk one wall of tire outside of the rim, reach in and grasp old tube and pull it out. Now straight new tube out remove plastic fill cap(put cap in your pocket), reach in and insert filler into hole in rim, now working your way around with your fingers to push tube up into tire(carefull not to let it get twisted), now put cap back on tube so you don't loose the filler, now work your way around with your fingers to push tire back into rim, you may need to use the box end of the wrenchto help pry the last bit of tire back in(Just don't pinch the tube between wrench and rim while doing this, lest you now have a new hole to fix), now grasp filler so you don't loose it, add air to amount shown on tire, and RIDE ON!

SOURCE: Men Mountain Bike (26"): How to adjust tention on the rear brakes...

Your bike likely has linear pull brakes so you will need to a. loosen the pinch bolt that holds the brake cable to the noodle (down at the wheel). You then pinch the brake in towards the rim with your hand until it's almost touching and then retighten the cable. You can then do some fine adjustment on how close the brake pads are the rim with the adjusting nuts up at the levers.

SOURCE: How can I raise handlebars on a 26 in. Mountain

You need an Allen wrench (a.k.a. hex key) to fit the bolt head right in the middle of the handle bars. Loosen this bolt just 2 or 3 turns then tap the head with a soft hammer or block of wood and a hammer. Then pull the handle bar stem up (and all of the way out so you can see how the wedge-shaped nut at the bottom of the stem works). Look for a mark on the stem telling you how high you can safely raise the bars (you have to leave enough of the stem inside the tube so that it will be strong.) Put it back in and tighten it up. If you found this helpful, please vote. Good luck

Fix flat tire


You probably have a Presta valve. Go to a bike shop and get an adapter (for about a buck and a half) it screws on that valve and then you have a regular valve to inflate

Inner tube size for diamondback mountain bike


Read the tire size on the sidewall of the tire and buy a tube that is the same size. Most of them are 26x1.75-2.00, but it could be 24 or even 29 depending on the size of the bike.

What are the hardware differences between hybrid and mountain bicycles? How feasible is it to go from mountain (fat tire) to hybrid (thin low drag tire) functions? Can I just change the wheels or is it...


Some of this will depend mostly on what type of bike youre talkin' about here. Some cruiser/comfort type bikes will have the exact same rim size as nearly all mtn bikes and will swap with no problem but a 26 and 700 size wheel is NOT the same and there is NO compatibility between tires or frame of the bike including the fork. On a standard 26x2.1 size mtn tire the smallest you could go to is a 26x 1.50 that will fit on that wheel. if you have a French 26x1 3/8 size (S6) tire then the answer is the same....NOT compatible with anything 26" whatsoever. You cannot change the wheels either depending on the frame/fork you have. All you need to do is change the tires and keep the wheels! Any hardtail mtn bike will work fine as a commuter bike if you change the tires to a thinner and smoother tire for less rolling resistance.

How do I get the back tire to adhere back onto the bike rim?


Once you fill the tube with the proper amount of air pressure the tire will will press against the rim. the proper pressure should be on the side of the tire. Good Luck!

The pedal hits the tire whilst turning. We just got the bikes and put them together but when you ride and try to turn, the pedal hits the front tire and causes the bike to stop abruptly.


The pedal should not be able to reach the front tire. Sometimes one gets their toes to overlap the front wheel on a racing bike but that's because they have intentionally short wheel base and a steep for angle. Which way is the fork on your bike pointing? It should be angled or curved forward.

Look at the bike icon on this posting for an example.

My bike got a wobbly tire basically right when i bought it


The cheapest way is to buy a new tube to see if that was the problem. Sometimes tubes can inflate bigger at one area than others. If not check to see if the rim is true, meaning that it is not bent, if so replace. It could also be the tire.
