The pads inside the hub could be worn or the hub could be adjust incorrectly. How do you know that the bearings are all good. Did you overhaul the hub? If so, make sure your reassembled the hub correctly.

Hope this helps!

Is the chain suppose to spin backwards on all mongoose bikes ?


Only if it has a freewheel, it will make a slight clicking sound when pedaled backwards. The coaster brake models do not. If you pedal backwards and the cranks locks up tight after moving a few inches then it is a coaster brake bike. These also have a brake arm on the rear hub, attached to the frame.

I have a hyper pro model bmx bike and My back rim tightens up when I start to pedal


Do you mean that the back wheel becomes hard to roll when you start to pedal? And is this tightening up coming from the center of the wheel (bearings, hub, axle), and not from the rim or tire rubbing on something like the brakes or the bike frame? I am guessing a lot here from your breif description of the problem, but if I have that right you will have to remove the rear wheel and partially disassemble the hub. The locknuts that should constrain the space taken up by the bearings and the mechanism that allows you to pedal or coast (assuming this is not a fixed-gear bike) are either loose or adjusted too tight. It is also possible that the coaster mechanism has another problem. Good luck!

When coasting the pedals keep moving so you have to continue to pedal and when peddling backwards the bike goes backwards, how do I stop this?


I assume that this bike normally has a coaster brake. If so, your coaster brake mechanism (inside the hub of the drive wheel) is jammed or broken. You will have to disasssemble the wheel hub. This bike might have a coaster brake on both rear wheels or maybe just one side. Lift both rear wheels off the ground and turn them independently to determine which side the problem is on.

You Have A Bad Wheel Bearing. Inside the wheel bearing is a speed sensor, The Only Good Way To Change the speed sensor, Is To change the wheel bearing, Because , more than likely , the bearing is failing also. Good Luck

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.
