Question about Huffy Men Mountain Bike (26")

1 Answer

I have a 26" Huffy men's mountain bike with shocks on the front forks. When ever I apply the front brakes the bike shakes badly and the front forks flex forward and backward rapidly. I couldn't see any thing that was loose to be tightened but definitely moving at that point. I haven't ridden the bike that much either. Thanks, Stuart

Sounds like you have brake chatter. You need to "toe in" your pads on the front brake. Most new brake assemblies have a wedge shaped washer between the pad holder and where it mounts. If you loosen the nut that that holds the pad holder to the assembly and turn the washer you can see the relationship betwween the pad and the rim change. Turn the washer so the pad is toed in slightly(the end towards the front of the bike). If your brakes don't have the shaped washer you can put a crescent wrench on the brake arm and CAREFULLY tweak the toe in. Be gentle and good luck!

Mountain bike. How can I fit front mud flap?


There is a big hole, almost like a pipe inside the fork, below where the fork meets the handle bar stem. Standard front mud guards on mountain bikes basically have a plug which mounts into that hollow hole of the fork. The plug expands as the bolt holding the mud guard is tightened, squeezing itself against the wall of the hole and grips.

26113093-52evhm5fwu3odbzoicmgq2ee-4-0.jpg The plug should be available at some hardware stores, or one can use something like cork or rubber or even plastic to create one. Two offset pieces of material can expand and grip to the walls of the hole when bolted together. The same bolt can be used to hold the mud guard at the same time.

My bicycle has a suspension problem......... my front suspension fork is so hard...... it works very often............ please help


I hate to tell you this, but the forks on the bike you have do not have any adjustment available. Forks with Adjustments and the ability to disassemble to be able to "tune" the ride start in around $250- for the fork. As you ride, the mechanism inside your fork should break-in and give you more shock absorbtion and become easier to engage.

Other than replacement, there is no direct solution for your fork.

Men Mountain Bike (26"): How to adjust tention on the rear brakes...


Your bike likely has linear pull brakes so you will need to a. loosen the pinch bolt that holds the brake cable to the noodle (down at the wheel). You then pinch the brake in towards the rim with your hand until it's almost touching and then retighten the cable. You can then do some fine adjustment on how close the brake pads are the rim with the adjusting nuts up at the levers.

The pedal hits the tire whilst turning. We just got the bikes and put them together but when you ride and try to turn, the pedal hits the front tire and causes the bike to stop abruptly.


The pedal should not be able to reach the front tire. Sometimes one gets their toes to overlap the front wheel on a racing bike but that's because they have intentionally short wheel base and a steep for angle. Which way is the fork on your bike pointing? It should be angled or curved forward.

Look at the bike icon on this posting for an example.
