SOURCE: Bicycle Rear Wheel Problem

Tighten the two pinion gear bolts that are holding the rear wheel, if the wheel is wobbling, then that is the problem.

If this does not fix the problem, you will probably better buy a new wheel, or replace the whole pinion gear and axis assembly, better to replace the wheel.

It's prabably easier to buy a whole new hub. And for ablout another $20 you get a whole new tire. You should do that. Have a bike shop do it because it can be tricky.

Are there any special tools needed to replace a hub bearing on the rear passenger side with E brake on a 2007 Impala?

Just a socket set. You remove the wheel, take the drum off (or the brake caliper and rotor if it's disc brake) and remove the 4 bolts on the back side of the hub. They are usually 13mm or 15mm 12 point bolts. You may need to tap it with a hammer to get the bearing assembly off of the axle. That's it!

L have a Kustom Kruiser Glide Deluxe bike, which you pedal backward to make back brake work which does ok, but sometime when you pedal forward the hub slips so you get no drive.

Hi davethenutt..
Check your nuts that hold the "guts" into the center of the bike rear wheel.
Sometimes when they are too tight it causes the problem you are talking about.
Remove the rear wheel assembly
Once you have the rear wheel assembly removed from the bike, hold the axle and rotate the wheel, it should spin easy, if it spins rough or not at all, then loosen the nuts.
The nuts are after you remove the axle nuts.

My daughter has a Schwinn Sidewinder 26" mountain bike. The chain keeps jumping from the rear sprockets to a smaller sprocket under power. I have noticed that the rear sprocket set "wobbles"...

It's loose on the hub. Special tools are required to tighten them. Bike Shops have them and will possibly perform the repair for less than the cost of the tools.

Then check the shifting...

Word to the wise: don't buy bicycles from anywhere but a professional bicycle shop. Box stores don't usually have the skills for proper assembly, setup or follow-up.

Can you give me step by step instructions for installing the training wheels by bell

Somone else had a good answer:

"Best Answer - Chosen by Voters
You really shouldn't be doing this unless you are able to work this out yourself, but in the interest of safety, here's how to do it:

Each stabilizer "side" has a wheel, an axle bolt, 2 nuts, and the frame. This means that in total you should have 2 wheels, 2 axle bolts, 4 nuts, and 2 frames. There may be some star washers as well.

1) Place the axle bolt through the wheel.
2) Thread one of the nuts on the axle bolt until it stops.
3) Put the axle through the frame. If there is a round washer, place it over the axle bolt next.
4) If there is a lockwasher, place it over the axle bolt.
5) Thread the other nut onto the axle bolt, then while holding the first nut, tighten the second one.
6) Install the assembly onto the bicycle.

Although you may be the handy type, I strongly suggest you take everything to a bike shop for correct assembly. Isn't your child worth it? Source(s): 30 years in the industry"

I need to see the parts break down of the rear axle assembly for a 1998 mongoose crossway 450 bike.

The model is not as important as what axle does it have and gears. Usually they are Shimano, but which model is that? look and see what it says, or else take it to a bike shop and ask them because you are more than likely going to need parts anyway. Sometimes, it is cheaper to buy a whole new wheel than to buy the tools and parts.

No Rear Quick Release

Some less expensive bikes do not come with quick release skewers. You just unscrew the bolts like you would any other using a wrench or socket. The will probably be really tight so you may need to bear down or use a cheater pipe. Unfortunately, these bolt on wheels tend to be solid axles and cannot take a quick release skewer. You would need to replace the wheel.

I need to install quick release skewer to reare wheel for trackstand mag 3. do you have illustration?

This isn't something a novice wants to attempt. You would need a number of special tools (cone wrenches, cassette-removal tool) and the mechanical knowledge to make it work.

Either get a new rear wheel with a QR-axle or have a Bike Shop replace the solid axle with a QR-compatible one, which would be almost as expensive.

Chain and Wheels

thank you for using Fixya. the issue you are experiencing is pretty much your free wheel. If it is new, it may have been installed the other way around or the clip in the assembly that serves as a spring for the chainwheel to lock out has been worn out.

Best if you will be able to remove the rear wheel and then check the whole rear hub assembly starting with the freewheel and the axle.

Childs 12 inch mongoose is new, but back wheel does not spin prop

The bikes are pre-assembled by a machine that overtightens the rear axle.  I had the same problem with my daugher's 12 inch huffy princess bike and my other duaghter's 16 inch Schwinn bike.  If you loosen the nuts on the back axle it fixes the problem.  I have read that the idea thing for these bike is to have them re-assembled and re-lubricated by a bike shop, but I thought this might cost as much as I paid for the bike.
