Need better wording/explanation of the question - why do you need the info? The hub is merely the center part of the wheel - to which the spokes are attached, as well as the cog(s) that drive the bike from the chain. The outside diameter of the hub is not very important.

Most beach cruisers have a chain guard. There is always a slight "wobble" of the front chain ring, check to make sure the chain isn't slapping the chain guard. The chain guard can be adjusted. The chain also might have loose tension causing it to bounce around just enough to hit the chain guard. The opposite may be true, if the chain is too tight, you could be getting a popping sound at certain points on the chain as it messes with the gear teeth, in this case loosen the chain slightly to put a little slack in it.

check the chain tension, this could be caused by the chain being too tight. Loosen the rear wheel nuts, slide the wheel slightly forward and retighten the nuts. See if that helps. If it is still hard to pedal then the crank's bottom bracket may need to be adjusted and could require special tools that your local bike shop would have.

Not enough info here. Is it the rim or the hub that is wobbly? If the rim is out of true (and not actually bent) the spokes can be tightened to bring it back into true. If the hub is loose then the bearings need to be adjusted. Either adjustment can be done by your local bike shop for $10-20. A broken spoke can also make the wheel go out of true, this will cost a little more to fix.

The most likely cause of this problem is that the back wheel is not in straight. If you loosen the 2 nuts that hold the wheel in you'll be able to align it with the chain. When you stand behind the bike the wheel and chain should be parallell.

You should also keep the chain oiled as it helps to stop it hopping across the gears.

Cable adjustment is complex. Suggest taking your bike to local bike shop for assistance

Ondersteun de cranck en sla aan de bovenkant op de crack met een hamer. Het "schrik-effect" maakt de pendalen nu vaak los.

Your problem sounds like the brake assembly inside the hub is bad. If you bought the bike recently, take it back to the retailer. For proper repairs for this problem, I suggest taking your bike to the local bike shop.

Probably a puncture or faulty valve!

Flip bicycle up-side-down so it sits on the seat and handlebars. Loosen the 2 nuts that hold the rear wheel on. Sitting behind the bike on the ground, so that you can align the wheel to a straight position, pull the wheel back so that the chain is snug. You don't need to pull hard, just hold the wheel in place and straight. Using the other hand, slowly tighten the axle nuts back down until the wheel is held in place. Once the nuts are tight enough to securely hold the wheel, tighten the nuts. Sometimes this method will make the chain too tight. If this happens, repeat the process as above, only this time when you go to tighten the nuts back down, squeeze the chain slightly to create a bit of slack. Ideally, the chain will be tight enough not to skip or slip, and at the same time, loose enough not to make noise, bind up, or do any damage.

There are "chain tensioners" available that hook around the rear dropouts of the frame and also around the axle, allowing you to tighten the chain to exact specs. simply by tightening or loosening adjuster screws. They will also help to keep things from loosening up over time. These make things much easier and I highly suggest looking into them.

Use any of a variety of oils and lubes available, but try to avoid WD-40 for chain lube. It will stop a squeak for now and make things seem to move smoother, but in the long run, WD-40 will attract dirt and debris to the constantly moving parts of your chain and can shorten the life of a chain considerably. Hope this helps.

The 3rd nut you are asking about does go to the coster break. sould have a small bracket that wraps around the frame, then the break leaver goes in the middle. if it has a differnt bracket then it goes on what ever side that it is closet. in or out side, dont matter, as long as it dont hit the tire or rim.
Good rideing, be safe. Vern

Many believe that removing a link will fix chain slack, this will not work if the chain has stretched over time. Take a 12" ruler and align one end with a pin and see if another pin aligns at 12". Any pin that extends beyond 12 1/8" indicates that the chain is too far gone and requires replacing.

There are a number things that could cause your problem.

First place start is with the rim. Is the rim (wheel) true (straight), if it is bent it could have the tire or brake rubbing. If that is the problem you need to true or straighten or have the rim straightened.

2nd place to go is are the brakes too tight? If so adjust brakes.

3rd place to go could be a seriouse problem. Is the axle frozen. To test you will have to take the wheel off the bike. With the wheel loose from the bike see if the axle will turn if not try to loosen the bearing lock nut just a very little (like 1/8 of a turn) did it free up the axle or does the axle bind a little but still turn smoothly? If so Loosen the lock nut a little more. Just enough that the wheel will allow the axle to spin freely but not so loose as to allow the wheel to wobble sideways at all. If the axle turns and grinds and clunks your bearings likely need to be replaced and or greased. Do not just squirt oil into the bearings it is too light and will not last.

I hope this helped, good luck!
