Question about Huffy Cars Lightning McQueen 16 Boys' Bicycle

Son's can pedal 12" bike

The 12" bike is very hard to pedal. Both of my sons were not able to ride it (at age 2 1/2 to 3 yrs) because it took so much strength to pedal. Might there be something wrong with the bike or way it was assembled? They are both able to ride other bikes/tricycles.

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.

Gears keep slipping


Have a trusted bike shop adjust the shifter cables. I'm told that all new bikes need to be re-tuned a month or 2 after purchase due to cable stretch.

"quadratic function" diophantus , a greek


Let x be Diophantus' age when he died.

His son died 4 years before Diophantus (so Diophantus was then x-4 years old). His son lived half as long as Diophantus so when he (son) died he was x/2.
Diophantus' son was born when Diophantus was (x-4)-x/2 years old. That was 5 years after his marriage so when Diophantus married he was (x-4)-x/2-5 years old. We also know that 1/6 of his life was spent in childhood, 1/12 in youth and 1/7 as bachelor so (x-4)-x/2-5=(1/6+1/12+1/7)x.
Now you solve last equation:
  • x-4-x/2-5=11/28x
  • x/2-11/28x=4+5
  • 3/28x=9
  • x=9*28/3=84 years

Diophantus was 84 years old when he died.

Sports Store? Do they also sell fishing tackle, skis and appliances? Take it back and buy a real bike at a real Bicycle Shop.

It will be fully functional and fitted to your son before you take it home and in a month or so they'll probably re-tune the shifting and everything for free.

If you can't find a nearby bicycle shop easily

Bought my son a Mongoose Rebel at walmart, but when pedalling, it feels like the crank is skipping forward. how do I correct this?


Until you resolve this please don't let your son ride the bike.

Do you mean skipping as in the chain is advancing over the cog or chainwheel teeth? It sounds like you don't have sufficient tension on the chain. After loosening the rear axle nuts, pull the wheel evenly back to make the chain snug but not tight, then tighten the nuts and make sure the wheel is straight, centered and not rubbing the frame.

Your pedal falling off is never a good thing, nor is the entire crank arm assembly.

For this one you are best taking it into your local bike shop and have them take a look at why both of these fell off. There are a number of reasons, from stripped thread to missing bolts and nuts to improper assembly. None of these are a good scenario with a childs bike, or any bike for that matter.

Alternative, and my personal suggestion - Take the bike back to where it was purchased and exchange for a new one. These parts should not fall off after years of riding let alone 2 days, and would constitute a warranty and safety issue.

I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND CONTINUING TO RIDE THIS BIKE, SINCE YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT ELSE WAS IMPROPERLY ASSEMBLED.
