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.

My bike got crushed by the garage door: back linear tektro bent to side and wheel spokes broke, wheel looks bent. Is this a costly repair? Ladies wildwood. Thank-you.


What's the whole bike cost? Normally every part of the bike except the frame is replaceable economically - which is subjective.

Tektro brakes or equivalent - cheap; wheel - probably cheaper than a rebuild; labor - unknown.

If the frame or the brake bosses are bent - fuhgetaboudit. Take it to a Bike Shop for evaluation. They can just hang new wheels on it and see how straight everything else is.

While you're at it, get a handle on how quick releases for the wheels work or more than your seat will be going down when you ride.

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.

When I take my daughters front wheel off her Diamondback bike I need to reajust the front break. How can this be avoided?


By always placing the wheel firmly into the fork's dropouts and then then tightening the quick release. Adjust the brake centering and it should always stay the same UNLESS the brake centering itself is moving every time you disconnect the brake to remove the wheel. Then it gets complicated.

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.

How do i attach front tire to frame?


if its quick release you pull out on the lever unscrew a little if you have too and then pop wheel out real quick ,,,to get back on you may have to unscrew it a bit more as the forks have expanded outward now, if its held in by nuts, you want an even amount of threads showing on each side, then you know it is tightened up correctly. but in both of these procedures make sure that you center the wheel between the brake pads evenly.

You may have a locked up wheel bearing or you may have an object stuck in the chain. Can you spin rear wheel by hand? If not, most like bearings, if so, then you may have bent gear tooth or something stuck in chain. Check derailer to make sure it is not bent
