The chain feels and sounds like it's jumping gears or slipping on the rear sprockets. It does it in all gears. It is a diamondback wildwood large 20"


The rear derailleur needs adjusting, once to establish limits (so it can't go past high gear or low gear). Everything else is up to you fine-adjusting the shifter to make the bike run quietly. If you're careless about your gear changes, you'll get MOSTLY into one gear but not quite perfectly, so the bike is always trying to start shifting into another gear - that's the sound you hear, the sensation you feel. Fine-tune your shifter positions each time you shift - you'll find a "sweet spot" where the bike runs almost perfectly silently.

No, they can't readily do that at the factory, not with chain drives. There are just too many things that can affect gear changes, and things are in a slightly different position every time you remove & replace the rear wheel, or even loosen & retighten it. Unless you're ready to spend vast dollars on a foolproof shifter system, shifting cleanly is going to be your job and your job alone. It's one measure of your bike riding skill... and the better you get at that skill, the better you feel about it.

...and your bike will like you for it.

Grind sound while turning


Hi

Is it a clunk clunk clunk noise? Then you have a CV joint that needs to be replaced. This is called the CONSTANT VELOCITY JOINT, and helps you turn the wheel when it is in motion.

It has ball bearings inside and when the housing wears out, they make that clunking noise.

See your mechanic for a change and see if you can replace both wheels at the same time.

Got a 1999 Diamondback Wildwood bike and was trying to take off the crankshaft and front sproket. Do I need a special tool for that? What's the trick?


Hi, yes you do need a special tool. It's called a Crank Arm Remover. The tool is basically a modified puller that threads first into the inside of the crank, (after the bottom bracket bolt is removed) where it is bolted to the bottom bracket. Then, a second bolt is then threaded inward against the tapered shaft of the bottom bracket. Slowly the crank will lift away from the tapered shaft of the bottom bracket. Hope this helps.

I have a Diamondback bike for my wife. Wildwood model that has sticking front brakes and is hard to steer to the left. I suppose that i just have to adjust the brakes, but how do I do that?


Make sure all the break caliper support parts are tightened, and the break cable doesn't get caught on any thing when you try to turn, whenever the cable is pulled-on the breaks will be applied.

I have a grinding noise coming from the pedal assm. It's not the pedals themselves but the area in the frame. What's the fix and what tools do I need? It's a Diamondback Wildwood 2002.


where the two pedals meet in the middle there is a bearing and when the bearing fills with dirt it make the grinding noise you can take it out clean and grease but if it is a packed bearing you will have to get a new one

How to disassemble crank bearing on Schwinn Mesa Mountain Bike


You wil need a couple of special tools, or be fairly creative with the tools you have.
  1. remove the dustcovers in the crank arms at the crank axle
  2. loosen the crank retaining nut/bolt.
  3. thread in a chank puller and pull the crank arms.
  4. remove the lock ring on the adjustable side of the crank axle (Requires lock ring wrench)
  5. remove adjustable bearing cup.
  6. remove axle and bearings
  7. replace or repair as needed.
Once you have it opened up ou can determine if you need new bearings or crank axle.
to assemble, reverse above procedure, insuring bearing play is minimalized.

Hope this helps.
