The tread rubber is coming off my back wheels how long does it take for new wheels to do this. I got it 4 years ago but haven't used it much . It makes me think it was not new. I just had to replace the batteries.

HI. Tyre life is very variable depends on road surface, lenght of time in the sun, weight of driver, and amount of use. As for batteries, I have seen batteries last for only a few weeks, and I have seen others last for 7 years. Batteries do not like sitting around not being used. They need to be used, but not overused, to maintain their condition.
Good luck. Neil.

Roaring sound front left wheel, maybe a wheel bearing?

It could be the the wheel bearing...again, as you said. I also would like to know if you had the front end aligned when you changed the wheel bearing. If the tires have excessive wear on the outside or inside tread, you are out of alignment and BOTH wheel bearings need to be changed! It could also be the brakes wearing thin...check it out!

How to stud your bicycle tires for winter riding

Slipping on snowy and icy roads in winter? Don't give up riding, just add some studs to an old pair of tires.
1. Either get a hold of some old bicycle tires that still have tread on them or buy a new pair.
2. Poke a pin through the thick tread part of the tire to measure its thickness.
3. Find some metal screws that are just a little bit longer than the thickness of the thickest rubber tread of the tires and have a tapering head so when screwed in fit flush with the rubber.
4. Drill holes through the treads in the tires smaller than the size of screws you have.
5. Screw the screws through the inside out in the tires until the are all the way through and sit flush with the inside of the tire.
6. Screw in all the screws making alternating patterns between the treads (ever other tread, every 2 treads, etc.) The more screws you use the longer it will take but in the end you will have better traction.
7. When you have completed screwing in all the screws wrap a piece of duct tape over the top of all the screws to protect your tube from them.
8. Place the tires back on the rips and pump up the tubes and enjoy!
***Be careful, the screws are sharp and will scratch or cut you! You definitely don't want to ride to close to someone or hit a pedestrian with your tires.

I have a Task Force 10" band saw, model # 90181.

for the tires, I asked in another forum and this is what I found:
fortyfinge user_offline.gif Join Date: Sep 2004 Location: USA Posts: 2 reputation_pos.gif way easier, way cheaper masking tape. Just plain white masking tape. About 8-10 wraps around the circumference of your wheel. I tried this about 15 years ago as a stop gap method while waiting for the new rubber ones I'd ordered to arrive. The new rubber was a pain to install and only lasted a couple of years under daily use.
I've been back to the tape for ten years. quote.gif

I have been having issues with my real wheel on my bicycle. I have Mavic Ksyrium Equipe wheels, and the rear wheel seems to be flexing too much under loads (i.e. sprinting, climbing, descending, and...

It's hard to believe a shop can't deal with what sounds like loosening spokes. OTOH, we Clydesdales are tougher on wheels than the lil guys. I used to break a lot of spokes under high torque demands, especially on several sets of Spinergy Spox wheels, then I bought a Park spoke tension gauge and meticulously trued and tensioned all the wheels on all my bikes. Haven't had a spoke issue since then.

Or you could get an old set of Spinergy Rev-X like I did a long time ago before I figured out the tension thing. If you can break or bend them you are not human.

Haven't heard of a problem there but if you have a problem, once you install the new line, get a length of rubber hose (like fuel line) and split it lengthwise. Put it on the line and clamp it. Put a third clamp exactly where contact causes the damage so the clamp further protects the hose. Do that and you won't have a problem there again.

Does anyone have information where you can get replacement rubber tires / wheel grips for Brio electric train engines? (wooden tracks) We have a few electric engines that can no longer climb the hills...

I dont know where you can get replacement tyres. But here is a fix for the problem:
Using tweezers then fingers, pull off the existing tyres.
Take ordinary sewing thread, and wrap it around the V in the wheels (where the tyre was), about 20 turns or so, keeping the ends inside the V.
Put the tyres back on.
The thread forces the tyres further out, making some tread from the rubber available above the level of the plastic wheel rims.
