Question about Huffy Cycling

I have huffy sprint scooter and after putting it together the brakes just don't work correctly. I have rechecked everything and it is as though there is extra slack in the line and won't pull the brake.

At the point that the cable attaches to the brake it runs through a bolt with a nut attached. Loosen the nut (just enough to move the cable), squeeze the brake caliper slightly (about 1/2 inch clearance to the rim on each side), pull the cable through until tight and re-tighten the nut. Make sure both ends of the cable housing are seated (in the lever and the brake adjustment) before this adjustment.

How to put together the 20' huffy green machine

There should have been instructions to complete this task in the box. If you didn't get them, lost them or never had them, I suggest (a) go to service or support or (b) take the bike to your nearest bike shop for correct and complete assembly.

I would suspect that the brake is not releasing causing your problem. When you place the handle in freewheel and you can't push the scooter easily then the brake pad is stuck on the motor housing. If you are able remove the seat and back cover remove the drive wheel on the side of the scooter nearest the freewheel lever usually the right side. you should be able to see the brake attached to the end of the motor with 3 or 4 hex head screws. take the brake off the end of the motor and carefully leave the wiring attached ( don't break or remove the wires going to the brake or the scooter will not run at all) remove the brake and place or tie it up where it won't fall or drag. Put the drive wheel back on and turn the scooter on and see if it will now move. If it moves like it should you will have to replace the brake. You can drive the scooter like this but remember you do not have brakes so the scooter can roll backwards or forward when not on and especially on ramps Hope this helps
