SOURCE: huffy green machine front tire is flat

There are nuts at each side of the axel, on which the wheel turns. These may have to loosened by a spanner or may have quick release levers. If there are levers pull them outwards from the wheel and you can then turn them to release the wheel. Let all the air out of the wheel. Then insert 2 levers under the edge of the tyre, about 6 inches apart and pull the tyre out over the rim of the wheel. Put in your finger and pull the rest of the tyre over the rim. Then lever the other side of the tyre over the same side of the wheel and remove the tube. Replace the tube ensuring that the valve for pumping is in place first. Replace the tyre as far as possible by hand and use the levers for the final few inches taking care not to trap the tube between the lever and the rim of the wheel as this could cut the tube. Place the wheel back on the bike and tighten the nuts.

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 do i attach hand break on huffy 16 inch princess bike


Huffy's general manual addresses only how to adjust brakes that have already been assembled (under the heading on page 20 it states "Adjustments". I noticed this problem and it took me a while to realize the single sheet of paper that came with the bike (not part of original manual), that acts as an addendum. It's called "Brake Cable to Brake Lever Assembly Instructions." Why this section hasn't been incorporated into the manual is beyond me.

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.

Terrible instructions for installing caliper brakes


The cable has a stop on it that threads thru the lever housing. It also usually has an external threaded nut for adjustment. You need to start the adjustment process by screwing the "nut" all the way against the housing. Then you move to the "caliper" itself. The cable is held in place by a compression nut. Pinch the caliper with your hand until it is almost touching the rim and then tighten the pinch bolt. You can then fine tune the adjustment by using the nut next to the lever housing. As you screw that nut out the brake pads will move in towards the rim and vice versa...hope this helps!

How do you adjust bicycle hand brakes


Hi,

There are two techniques:
The first involves the adjusting barrels and lock nuts on the brake levers, but i prefer to loosen the cable in the brake arm and pull it tighter and reclamp it there.

Hope this helps, feel free to email for further help,
