Go to a Trek dealer and he may be able to help you. Sometimes we have a copy of the instructions laying around or one of our mechanics will remember the instructions. Batteries can be bought at Radio Shack, their batteries will be fresher than ours because we do not sell enough of them.

Hello i have bought new tyres and the rear tyre is a different profile it should be an 130 /80 /17 and the rear tyre arrived as a 130/90 /17. Will the 90 be ok on the bike thanks for your reply

Hi, Caroline the 90 should be ok it is a taller profile which may affect your speedometer accuracy by 10% it will also decrease your cruising RPM slightly which adds longevity to your engine life. Depending on the year-make-model of your bike the speedometer may be recalibrated to compensate the difference..
For this situation, I would call or visit my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry.

If it is a U-brake or V-brake all you need is an allen wrench is a special "L" shaped six-sided wrench, coming in various sizes, that fits into a recessed hexagonal socket hole in the end of an allen wrench.

Hi, I owned a 2011 Trek 7.6FX. So far the bike has been good and in stock condition but I was wondering: 1. If I could use a fatter tires like LT2 or LT3 if I were to hit the track. The 700x28c...

"Track"??? Do you mean "trail", as in REAL off-road rocks-n-roots singletrack?

Ah, the 'compromise' bike dilemma. This is NOT a mountain bike frame nor are the wheels designed for hard hits. But you could try to make it work for light-duty trails.

1. They make all kinds of rubber for 29ers which use the same rim size. Search for 29er tires.

The frame and fork may limit how large a tire will have clearance. Being totally stiff (unsuspended) the off-road ride would be rough by today's MTB standards. Think: loose fillings and blurred vision, plus a lot of standing to survive the ride. That takes energy. But then there are those who have intentionally bought 'niners without suspension for some reason.

A REAL mountain bike would be a better choice, just as a REAL road bike might be for that activity if sustained speed is ever a going to be a goal.

2. Avid's make good brakes AND levers. Which end is the problem, I wonder. Pads also play a major part in stopping power.

I let a friend borrow my bike and he had a new tire put on back it is a 170/80-15 and now the tire rubs the stabilizer bar and if you adjust it off the bar then it rubs the chain is this tire bigger than...

It is clear that your new tire is bigger than previous one. You have now 17 cm wide tire but previously 15 cm wide. This is why the new tire rub your stabilizer bars. You can use additional spacer on bearing shaft actually, but this is not a good idea as it will give impact on bike instability. I suggest to replace the tire with previous one. This is the best for your bike.
Remember that tire with data 170 / 80 - 15 mean: - 170mm ( 17 cm ) tire width - 80 ( %) width to height comparison - 15 ( inch) wheel diameter

Hi can anyone tell me what size my front tire is on my 1981 yamaha xj650

The size should be on the side of the tire. If memory serves me correctly The bike came with a 3.25 x19 (100/90x19). If your speedometer is reading higher (faster) than it should with a 100/90/19 you can bring the high reading down by trying a 3.50 x 19 (110/90 x 19).

Tire replacement

but whats the widest size tire I can safely mount on the stock rims. Have seen it posted somewhere that I could mount a 4.10/19 on these. That would probably smooth out the ride a little bit. But just wondering if it would start clearance issues. When you need a wider tire you really need a better tire. Try the Avon AM26. Rear 100/90-19. Front 90/90-19. These will transform your bike.,
