Mongoose BMX Bicycle Troubleshooting
I have a standard, stripped BMX bicycle made by Mongoose. I'm not positive on the year this bike was produced, but it can be narrowed down to in between 2008 and 2010.
Deflated tire ¶
Bicycle does not stay inflated no matter how many times you pump air into it.
Small hole in the inner tube ¶
Sometimes duct tape can patch holes in the inner tube of bicycle tires, preventing air from escaping.
Tear in the inner tube ¶
If the inner tube has a large tear it must be replaced.
Tear in the tire ¶
The bicycle tire has a large hole or tear in it and will need to be replaced.
Squeaky handle bars ¶
Difficulty turning handle bars or squeaking sound when turning handle bars.
Bad ball bearings in headset ¶
The ball bearings can be replaced or headset can be oiled.
Chain falls off ¶
Bicycle chains normally come off because they are too loose and need to be tightened.
Pedal breaks ¶
Pedals can break after continual force is applied and must be replaced.
Bicycle seat tears ¶
Wear and tear on a bicycle seat is not likely to be repaired, but probably needs to be replaced.
