I am assembling a 24 inch girls Traverse bike. Not quite sure how the front wheel goes on the fork! Seems obvious but I got confused when I saw the quick release assembly packaged with the pedals. Not...


The Front Quick release is used on the front wheel, if the axle is hollow. If it has nuts on the outside of the axle then it does not belong to the front wheel.

The front quick release is actually quite easy.

1) Place the front wheel into the forks.
2) unscrew the nob end of the skewer (opposite the handle end)
3) insert the skewer through the axle (from right to left if looking at the front of the bike)
4) Screw back on the nob a few turns.

The actual working of the quick release skewer is a cam (there is an imprinting on the handle that says open and close. make sure the handle has "open" facing out for the next step.

5) Holding the handle in your right hand, turn the nob with your left hand until the unit is almost tight.
6) Test the tightness by flipping the handle from "open" to "close". this is a cam. if you have the correct tightness then it will have some resistance to close the lever but not be difficult. If it is really hard, then back off the nob a little and try again. If it is too easy then tighten the nob a little and try again. After a couple of tries you will get it.
7) final test. Take a finger and try to flip open the lever, if you can't then its good, if you can then go back to step 6.

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.

The front wheel assembly is wobbly. Cant seem to find a new wheel anywhere. Thought that fixing it would be cheaper than getting a new trike but maybe not?? Thanks Jodie


you'll want to start by taking the front wheel off of the bike. there are two nuts on the axle on each side of the hub. (besides the ones you loosened to remove the wheel) the two inside nuts keep the bearings tightly in position inside the hub, and the two outer nuts are jamnuts that are tightened to the two inside nuts to keep them from turning once you've got the tension set. so loosen the jamnuts from the tension nuts, set the tension tight to where the wheel doesnt wobble but not so tight that the wheel doesnt spin freely. then tighten the jam nuts while holding the tension nuts in place with a wrench so that the tension nuts dont move when you're tightening the jam nuts. take your time and you'll be fine. I hope this helps and Good luck!

Chain has become loose and will ride off gears while in use


If its a singlespeed:

Examine the tightness of the bolts that attach the axle to the frame by loosening then with a wrench. If it was loose that could have been the problem.

Now check the alignment and equal spacing of the wheel inside the frame. Pull the wheel back in the dropouts so the chain has an inch or two of looseness. Lightly tighten the bolts and check again and crank the wheel with the pedals and spin. Check the chain and equal alignment of the wheel. Tighten the bolts that attach the wheel to the frame.

If its a quick release, make sure that when tightening you apply a good amount of force to close the lever at least 90 to 100 degrees. And do all of the above.

Blade popping off front wheel


Is the axle tight? Has the tool been dropped to warp the frame? But a quick fix if everything else is OK is to loosen up the axle and put a THIN metal shim on the backside of the axle and then tightening it back down.

Replace rotor


when you take the front wheels off you will see a silver center cap in the middle of the hub take a flat heat screw driver a gently pry the cap off (don't worry if you mame it alittle) there will be a cotter pin a nut and a washer then you outter bering take them all off then the rotor will come off the inner bering is still in the rotor being held by the grease seal pry the old grease seal off and remove the bering. check berings for wear like ruff spots. make sure you buy a new grease seal for the rotor. reverse removal procedure re pack berings with fresh grease inner first place bering in the rotor put seal in place will need to tap it in carefully when putting the nut back on tighten untill snug not tight check for specs if you want i usually make it snug then 1 more turn do not over tighten and you will be good

Rear wheel problem on Raleigh X1 mountain bike


Three things come to mind when I read your question. First is the rear wheel bearings. Spin the wheel back and forth while holding onto it. See if you can feel any vibration or a rough feel in the wheel. I would think that if it were the wheel bearings you would hear or feel a grinding noise when you are riding.

If your rear wheel has a nut on both sides and you tightened them and that didn't work this means you must have the quick release system. You can tighten this by unclipping the wheel. Then hold the side that has the quick release lever. Hold onto the lever itself. Then turn the other end a little bit clockwise. Then put your wheel back on the bike and reclip the lever. It should now feel tighter. You may have to readjust the quick release lever a few times until you find the desired tightness.

Lastly the problem could be that your frame is worn out or broken somewhere. This would only show up when you are out riding because of your body weight and the strain put on the frame while you are pedalling. Also the part of the frame where your rear wheel sets may be chewed up. This would cause the wheel to never really tighten on the frame and could also cause the rear wheel to move.

I had a bike where the quick release wheel stystem went bad and it would not tighten on the frame. I believe the rod that went through the middle of the wheel hub was stretched and would just not tighten onto the frame.

I hope this has been helpful

Try the bearings. Try a different wheel and rim. If its not the wheel then the crank bearings( ones the pedals are on) could be bad or the chain could be not set right.

Problems with releasing front wheel lock


I have just fixed my stroller which had a similar problem. The wheel was still swivelling but it was sticking slightly. I noticed that the pin that locks the wheel in place was half out and therefore the wheel was getting caught on it. I undid the nut that holds the end of the wheel lock cable in place and tightened this as tight as I could which pulls the pin back into place (making sure that the switch is in swivel position). I then put the washer and nut back on (making sure cable was as tight as possible).
