Question about Radio Flyer Toys

Open Question

I have a radio flyer trycle (the one with an removable adult push bar) in which the front wheels do not turn when my little boy peddles. I've tried taking off the white plates on the front wheel and tightened the 4 screws behind one plate. On the other side there is a metel ring that I am unable to remove. I seems the peddles are not connecting with the wheel somehow. Please help as my boy want to ride his bike.

SOURCE: Little Tikes Cozy Coupe red plastic wheel caps

The caps are a type of "acorn nut". Check a local hardware store (not the big guys) for this type of fastener and bring the shaft with you to get the correct size. These should not cost more than about $.50 each.

SOURCE: Removal of front wheel bearings for replacement.

Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock. www.babbittsonline.com/pages/parts/viewbybrandand/parts.aspx

Go to the "FRONT WHEEL" tab then enlarge the image if needed. This will show the construction of the assembly. It sounds like you have a good handle on the repair. Remove each bearing from the opposite side. Yes , just drive the bearings out with a rod smaller than the axle.

I don't get paid for my answers but I do take pride in them, and I am only trying to help. So if you will, > > > > A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

SOURCE: Pedals don't turn the front wheel.

You have to take off the tire, pull back the red cap along the pedal post and then pop the white plate off (small flathead screwdriver) to expose the inner hub off the wheel. There is a small metal plate with four screws...maybe the older kids snapped off the screws. You'll need a small flathead screwdriver, pliers or adjustable wrench and regular sized phillips screwdriver.

SOURCE: pedals don't 'engage' the wheels.

Take off the wheel and slide the red metal cap along the pedal post. Pop off the white plate with a small flathead screwdriver. This will expose the inner hub of the wheel. There should be a small metal plate held to the hub of the wheel with four screws...check the screws...did they snap off? You can also call the Radio Flyer customer service line (8-5) and get some help if you need a new wheel.

Can the front wheels be locked


I just Fixed this problem today with the bike Radio Flyer Trike 4 in 1. I just opened the red adjustable hub, and found one spring detached, and both springs that control the 2-pawl system of ratchet system very loose. I tensioned both springs but it worked for one day only. Called customer service, provided all the necessary information and they promised a new front wheel.
In 3 business days a received, a brand new front wheel with pedals and fork. The pedals are fixed on wheel, and is the best solution from radio Flyer for a Kid who is grown with the bike from 18 months to 36 month, and now at age 3 rides the lovely Radio Flyer like a dare devil. Thank you Radio Flyer.
Having a strong mechanical background, I opened system, both sides of the wheel. To dissemble and repair, I had to remove one pedal on the side of the big white hub. What I found inside was a Ratchet wheel, with rounded teeth, and 2 Pawls totally worn out.
I fixed drilling 4 holes all the way through metallic plate, ratchet wheel, and the hub of the wheel. Inside the hub cavity, I used 4 washers and nuts to secure tight all 4, 3/32 stainless steel screws.
My grandson is very happy and more confident, because now he can move the bike forward, and backwards, and the most important, now he can use the pedals of the front wheel to stop the bike. Which it was a safety flaw by original design of this bike, but solved now by Radio Flyer. The new wheel Red Hub has 2 Positions. 1 PULL TO COAST. 2 PUSH TO PEDAL.

We purchased a Radio Flyer Stroll and Go but during assembly the front wheel was put on but was put on 90 degrees the wrong way. We are not able to get the wheel off so we can correct the wheel.


Where you inserted the handle bars into the bearing assembly on the frame there is a fork clamp you had to tighten to secure the handle bars and front fork. Loosen this and you should be able to disassemble the front end. While reassembling be sure the you line up the notches on the fork with the grooves in the bearing assembly and that the handle bars are properly aligned before tightening the fork clamp.

The clamp for the handle bars of the Radio Flyer Tricycle do not keep the handle bars aligned correctly. As the child turns the handle bars to steer, the handle bars become misaligned. Any way to solve...


the clamp is far to loos if you can do the bolt up a bit more that will help if you can becouse there is no more thred left on it,,,undo the bolt and put a washer on the bolt under the nut head and do it up tight again if this still dont work the only other thing you could try is undo the bolt that holds the bars on and pull out the bars,,rap some sticky tape around the shaft and push the bars back into the bike then do the nut and bolt up to pinsh the bars up tight,,,
