First of all don't at all use the bicycle till wobbling gets fixed. I've seen one case in which the front handle to wheel support was loose and gave way while riding the rider fall forward and the result was smashed testicles. In rare cases only it's broken or cracked most of the time just the frame gets loose it is screwed with 3 screws two in the wheel and one on top center of the handle so these 3 needs to be tightened. In some cases when the wheel is not aligned then also one gets a feeling of wobbling of handle so check the alignment of the wheel also.

Hello. Do not ride this bicycle until that part is fixed. Usually, when that part is wobbling, the frame is broken and needs to be welded. Any welding shop in the yellow pages can do this simple weld. Joe

Bike developed a wobble, has side to side movement in front wheel


First check the tire-pressure, then the fork oil; see if the wheel has a loose bearing play.

One of my bower roller skates has a wobbly when can I fix this or will I need to buy a set of wheels?


. It seems as though your line bearings inside the wheel need to be changed. To do this you should: Use an Allen wrench to remove the axle from the front wheel. Pull out the front wheel. Remove the old bearings from either side of the wheel. They should pop right off if you use a bolt or something similar. Place new bearings on either side of the wheel. If necessary, use a flat surface for extra leverage. Place the wheel in the wheel frame. Use the Allen wrench to replace the axle. If your spacer is aluminium, tighten the axle bolts as far as they will go. If your spacer is plastic, tighten the bolts as far as they will go, then loosen them slightly. Spin the wheel to see how easily it rolls. If it doesn't spin freely, loosen the axle. If it wobbles, tighten the axle. Repeat the steps for the remaining wheels.

How do you raise the handlebars for the animator first bike by Giant bikes?


David-

To raise or lower the handlebars, first loosen the hex screw on the top of the stem. One or two turns is all that will be necessary. Next, you will need to stand in front of the bike with the front wheel between your legs to brace it, and give the handlebars a forceful twist to the left or right. This action will break the friction of the handlebar stem and the headtube (the headtube is part of the frame where the front forks and the handlebar stem meet...). With the handlebars loosened you can adjust the handlbars up or down. Keep in mind that the stem has only a specific amount of adjustment available...there is a limit to how far it can be extended up, as indicated by a line marked on the stem shaft. Once adjusted to the desired height, check that the handlebars and front fork and wheel are aligned. Tighten the screw in the top of the stem and you're done!

Hope this helps.

How do you raise the handlebars


There's a ring nut between the stem of the handlebars (The stem is the vertical part of the handlebars) and the frame of the bike where the handlebars connect into the frame. The handlebar stem goes down through the ring nut into the frame.

Loosen the ring nut and you'll be able to raise the handlebars. There's a mark on the handlebar stem which indicates the highest point that the handlebars can be raised to. If you raise it above this there won't be enough of it in the frame and this can cause the stem to break when pressure comes on it. Also when tightening the ring nut up again make sure you have the handlebars and front wheel lined up.

Take a little trip to www.schwinn.com They have instruction manuals, videos and most importantly a customer service line with someone that can walk you through their specific product.

It should not be that difficult for someone who is not a novice to put the trikes together, something is definitely wrong. Double check on the schwinn site that you have the correct assembly manual and parts list. You still have time, don't panic yet.

I have a 2000 Suzuki 1500 LC, I've got a wobble in the front end when I'm going about 30 -40 mph. I've been told that it's fork oil but not sure it has oil in it as it's got springs. Any idea what it...


A wobble that appears when slowing down is many times just low tire pressure. Check the front tire pressure should be 32-35 pds. Another thing that can cause a wobble is worn or loosely adjusted fork frame neck bearings(steering stem bearings). Disassemble around the handlebars down to the frame neck till you get the upper triple clamp off or can reach the adjuster nut , just underneath on top of the frame neck enough to tighten the steering stem bearings. You will need a shock adjusting tool (curved end with a single tooth) Comes standard in all Honda tool kits). Next, put a jack under the motor to lift the front wheel . Carefully wiggle the front wheel to see if you have a bad wheel bearing. If you do not have fork oil in your forks, you could possibly damage the chrome tubes. No oil would mean the forks would not go up and down smoothly. Do not add oil to your forks. Do not over fill your forks with oil. If you are not sure how much oil is in them, drain them and refill them with the correct amount. If you over fill the forks and drive the bike you will destroy the fork tubes.

Strange wobble noise


your bearings. thats what it sounds like to me. if it almost sounds like you have a big rock just jumbling around in your tire thats most likely your bearings. its pricey but its worth it to get it fixed. if thats not it check into your transfer case and your shocks

The washer goes between the wing nut and the fork. The fork will lock against the locknuts and cones that hold the wheel together. Just make sure that it is tight and the wheel does not wobble when done.
