Question about Huffy Regatta 26" Womens Bike, Sea Foam

1 Answer

Just picked up my bike from Walmart. They installed the seat wrong. The stirrup part is pointing straight up. Can't even sit on it.

Can I easily fix it myself? Don't want to get hurt if it is not fixed right.

Loosen the adjustment nut, and place into correct position.
Otherwise, take it right back and have them make the proper adjustment, free of charge - don't forget to take proof of payment / receipt.

Bike battery drains fast, bike seat & area below seat gets too hot to sit on

It sounds as though the seat pan might be coming into contact with the battery and thus causing the seat to heat up and drain the battery all at once. My question would be if the battery was recently replaced and an incorrect sized battery was used. If battery isn't under the seat pan itself, check for wires that might have insulation damage that could cause a short and draining the battery. Also some people have installed heated grips on their bikes, maybe the switch for that isn't off when not in use and causing a drain.

Bicycle seat fell apart

If you don't have a local bike shop to reassemble your seat or sell you a new one, you can probably find one to fit at Walmart or Target. A good bike shop will often give you one of better quality than you can buy at a department store, because many cyclists replace the seat with one that fits their bottom when they buy a new bike.

How do you put the seat together? The instruction book has instructions for three types of bikes but all three say to "insert the tapered end". This bike's seat rod doesn't have a tapered end! ...

A typical seat post will have a tapered end that slips into the seat clamp which grips the post and clamps the seat rails, all at the same time. If the seat post is not tapered at one end, then it must be a 22.2mm post. Loosen the seat clamp's nuts enough to install the saddle rails. The clamping area for the post should be under the "nose" of the seat. It should loosen enough to slip over the post without falling apart. Otherwise, you may have mis-matched parts.clmrt5000.jpg

I just noticed a slow leak on my 2003 deuce. What is the best way to deal with it?

Well, the first thing to do is to figure out where the leak is coming from. This is sometimes not as easily done as it sound. The wind while riding has a tendency to blow the oil back, up, and over and makes it look like the leak is coming from somewhere that it's not.

So, clean your bike completely even if it means using a pressure washer. Do not hold the pressure washer nozzle to closely to any part of the bike. If you hold it too closely to the steering head or the center of the hubs, you could force water into the bearings. I've taken transmissions apart and found water in them after they'd been pressure washed. So. just enough to make sure you get all the oil off your bike. Then, park the bike on a large piece of cardboard. Let it sit and watch where the oil drips onto the cardboard. The oil will drip straight down. This doesn't mean it went straight down to get to the drip point however. Once you fnd out where the oil is coming from, knowing how to fix it isn't a problem.

Good luck

Where can I find a replacement seat for my daughter's 16" princess bike

Hello. Any Walmart or bike shop will have replacement seats. All bike seats are interchangeable. If you take the bike to a bike shop they will probably install the new seat for you. Otherwise you will need a crescent wrench ot set of socket wrenches to do the job. Regards, Joe

I'm new to bike riding, it's only been a couple of months. I really don't know how to explain my problem, other than when I'm riding (downhill, uphill, anywhere), it feels like the bike is giving out when...

By "giving out" do you mean it feels like not all the power generated by your legs is getting to the rear wheel? This can be caused by a chain that need oiling, pedals that stick or don't turn easily, badly adjusted gear set (that doesn't have the chain riding in the middle of each gear, but off to one side or the other). Do you notice any chattering or scraping noises when you ride?
Also, make sure your seat is adjusted correctly. To get full power, you leg should be almost straight when you are sitting on the bike and the pedal is at the bottom of the stroke. If not, raise the seat until you can just touch the pavement when the bike is tilted (as at a stoplight). Also, make sure the tires are inflated correctly. Overly soft tires take more work to get to your destination.

Not getting fire from coil

Do you have a manual? If you do can you send me a copy of the correct schematic for your bike. It will me help you if you can scan a copy in to send me. If you don't already have a basic voltmeter that measures resistance. You should pick one up at either WalMart or even better Harbor Freight has the best deal $4-$9 there. What year is your bike? You can start off by isolating the kill switches from the coil by unplugging the coil lead headed towards on/off switch and other safety switches. The idea here is to make sure you don't have a bad switch by disconnecting all kill switches to test for spark. If still no spark does the bike have cdi box or points fire ignition. CDI is capacitor discharge ignition often refered to as the black box. Points are mechanical switches that open and close riding on the crankshaft.
Please send year of bike so I can better assist you.
Thank you,

Where do I put my foot

and am hoping to get some advice on foot position. What part of the foot should be resting on the peg? My bike has a relatively upright riding position and I can't really decide. Is the heel supposed to be directly on the peg or is the peg supposed to be in the arch of the foot (in front of the heel of the boot)? The bike is really comfortable overall but my right ankle has been sore because I can't seem to figure out what's comfortable. I know it's probably a matter of what is most comfortable for the rider, but does anyone have any suggestions?,I would not recommend putting your heel on the peg; it can easily slip off and you will have little ability to stand up on the pegs if needed. You will probably get differing views here, but I ride my standard bike much like I ride a horse; footpeg in the arch of my foot at some times just like a stirrup, and footpeg under the ball of my foot at other times; again just like in a stirrup. ,,,
