Also, my son was very excited about the new bike, and especially having gears, so he didn't complain about the fit when leaving his BMX styled Trek Jet 16. Your daughter might just need time to adapt...

Double check your brakes. On my bike in both the front and back, with the stock parts, the cable can be unhooked, allowing that side to flop over freely and allowing ample room to get the wheels off....

Nice! My little guy is almost 7 and now on his first geared bike, but I remember those first weeks when he went from a balance bike to a pedaling. Every trip up and down the sidewalk was a new and...

I didn't think he would have gotten any in there riding through the puddles or during the bike wash we did after, and yeah, we avoided high pressure water. It was more of a shower. I'll keep all...

Thanks for the offer Russ. I'm attempting to return or exchange the freewheel, but I might take you up on that offer if you have one with a 34 tooth low gear.

I didn't have any luck with getting the lockring off. I also don't want to spend more than I paid for the freewheel on a lockring removal tool to mess with the defective freewheel. If I didn't have...

Thanks Andy. I'll definitely give the oil a shot too. dehed also mentioned returning it, but it came from overseas, and that's probably not an option. It was only about $16 though I think. So if...

It wasn't noisy before, but now sounds there are rocks inside it when my son pedals around, almost crunchy, and the aforementioned play in the components doesn't seem right. It wasn't doing this...
