What is a decent replacement rear derailleur for a Mongoose 26" Ledge 2.1 Mountain Bike?


Get the kind that has a lever shift instead of the grip shifter. The plastic part that holds the spring breaks easily. The lever shifter has been going strong on my bike for 6 years without a problem

Screaching noice on passanger side and drained battery


It sounds like the alternator has went out. They have bearings in them that eventually wear out. When this happens, they can make a screaching noise, or the bearing itself can lock up, causing the belt to slip and make a similar noise. Both of these scenarios will get louder as you accelerate. When the alternator is not charging your battery correctly, your vehicles electrical system will drain the battery.

Does this model brakes front and rear at the same time when we press just front break ?


no ...you have a rear brake pedal to control the rear brake and the front is controlled by a brake lever which supplies 3/4 of all stopping power. Dont ever slam down on the rear brake pedal just apply it gradually.

When it is on the rinse cycle it makes a horrible sound


could be a clutch or drive tube problem, on the bottom of your basket drive tube is a thrust washer,it eventually wears off the boyyom of the tube and your clip that holds on your brake release arm falls off breaking your clutch arm and thus no spin will happen ,, sounds like yours is grinding off the bottom of the basket drive tube,, mine was always screaching on the rinse spin and finally gave out when it wore the bottom off my tube, went and bought a used tube installed it with a new clutch and works fine now no more screaching!

When i hit rear break i get a pulsating in the front break


How strange.Do you mean a pulsating in the front brake lever.If so you've got a warped front brake disc.As you apply pressure,the spinning disc is causing the pads>pistons>brake fluid to pulsate causing you to eventurly feel it through the brake lever.Put that beast on a centre stand with the front wheel off the ground ,HK.Look straight down the bike from head to tail,concerntating on the discs.Can ya see it now.????.Check your rear disc while your there and disc bolts for tightness. Best of luck HK.PS.Please leave feedback if i've helped. Tabby..OZ.

When in spin made loud klunking and screaching noise. now will not work in spin cycle without making loud klunking noise


Pull off the bottom panel, (three 1/4" screws along bottom). Check for chunks of concrete hanging down, or in the bottom pan. I have seen the lower front counter-weights on the HE2 break off several times. If not, reach in and give the basket a hard spin by hand, if you hear clunking or grinding, or the basket feels loose, you have a bad basket brace (usually caused by slop in the rear bearing). You would need to replace the rear shell (comes with a pre-installed bearing) and the basket. Depending on age, these parts may be in warranty, check your manual.

Brake lights


The taillight should be on at all times. The brakelight should come on when the front or rear brakes are applied. Start by disconnecting the front brake light switch then the rear to see which switch is broken. Also check the bulbs. I have seen them short out internally. The filament inside the bulb break and contacts the other circuit.
