The chain feels and sounds like it's jumping gears or slipping on the rear sprockets. It does it in all gears. It is a diamondback wildwood large 20"

The rear derailleur needs adjusting, once to establish limits (so it can't go past high gear or low gear). Everything else is up to you fine-adjusting the shifter to make the bike run quietly. If you're careless about your gear changes, you'll get MOSTLY into one gear but not quite perfectly, so the bike is always trying to start shifting into another gear - that's the sound you hear, the sensation you feel. Fine-tune your shifter positions each time you shift - you'll find a "sweet spot" where the bike runs almost perfectly silently.

No, they can't readily do that at the factory, not with chain drives. There are just too many things that can affect gear changes, and things are in a slightly different position every time you remove & replace the rear wheel, or even loosen & retighten it. Unless you're ready to spend vast dollars on a foolproof shifter system, shifting cleanly is going to be your job and your job alone. It's one measure of your bike riding skill... and the better you get at that skill, the better you feel about it.

...and your bike will like you for it.

I have a diamondback serene citi; in the highest gear, it's still too easy to pedal. Any way to increase the tension?

The "highest" gear would be the one where the chain is on the smallest cog of the back wheel and on the largest cog by the pedals. I mention this just in case you don't actually have it in the highest gear. But if you do, then no, other than dragging the brakes, you can't increase the pedal effort. (If this is one of the bikes that automatically shifts the gears for you, then yes it would be possible by changing the weight of the flywheel - but I recommend against it.) Many adult riders who haven't been riding much for some time experience this same desire, because they expect the pedal effort to be higher. I would guess that you are expecting to get some exercise. Biking is a good choice, but it takes time to warm up to it. Using a high pedal effort too soon will injure your knees and ankles. Better to take it easy, increase the time and distance and you find that you cadence (the rpm of your pedals) will naturally increase. Check what cadence you tend to find comfortable now. A healthy cadence is about 70 rpm. But you will probably find 40 rpm more comfortable at first. Good luck, stick with it. :) (By the way, most experienced riders find that those bikes the shift automatically actually give to high of a pedal effort - they tend to target a cadence of about 50 rpm.) I hope you found this helpful and encouraging. Al K

I cannot find a replacement nut that holds the crank pedal assembly to the sprocket for a Diamondback Cobra 24 bike. I have been to numerous hardware stores and can find a nut that fits the tread, but is...

You'll need to go to a bike shop and either purchase a new crankshaft (Less that $10) or, they may just give you a spare or two they have sitting around. It's a fairly specialized nut, something you won't find at the average hardware store.

Got a 1999 Diamondback Wildwood bike and was trying to take off the crankshaft and front sproket. Do I need a special tool for that? What's the trick?

Hi, yes you do need a special tool. It's called a Crank Arm Remover. The tool is basically a modified puller that threads first into the inside of the crank, (after the bottom bracket bolt is removed) where it is bolted to the bottom bracket. Then, a second bolt is then threaded inward against the tapered shaft of the bottom bracket. Slowly the crank will lift away from the tapered shaft of the bottom bracket. Hope this helps.

I have a Diamondback bike for my wife. Wildwood model that has sticking front brakes and is hard to steer to the left. I suppose that i just have to adjust the brakes, but how do I do that?

Make sure all the break caliper support parts are tightened, and the break cable doesn't get caught on any thing when you try to turn, whenever the cable is pulled-on the breaks will be applied.

I have a grinding noise coming from the pedal assm. It's not the pedals themselves but the area in the frame. What's the fix and what tools do I need? It's a Diamondback Wildwood 2002.

where the two pedals meet in the middle there is a bearing and when the bearing fills with dirt it make the grinding noise you can take it out clean and grease but if it is a packed bearing you will have to get a new one
