SAFETY FIRST!
ALWAYS WEAR A SAFETY HELMET - In a work place, we recommend
wearing a helmet or hard hat while riding your tricycle. Make sure your
helmet meets or exceeds ANSI and Snell safety standards. Look for
standard certification label inside the helmet. RIDING WITHOUT A
HELMET MAY RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY IN THE EVENT OF AN
ACCIDENT.
KNOW ALL THE COMPONENTS OF THE TRICYCLE AND THEIR
FUNCTION - In the next section of this manual, we have listed all the
components and their functions. Read this section and familiarize
yourself with these parts.
ADJUST THE HEIGHT FOR BEST FIT - You can raise or lower the
seat post according to your height. You can also tilt the handle bar
back or forth for the most convenient position.
LEARN BIKE RIDING THOROUGHLY BEFORE RIDING - Riding a
tricycle does not require the balancing and coordination skills as in riding
a bicycle. Nevertheless, you need to learn the basic concept of riding and
familiarize yourself with special handling and riding techniques that are
unique to this type of tricycle. Due to weight and size of these models,
the condition of the surface on which you ride your tricycle affects the
performance of your tricycle. You must learn to handle the tricycle in
different surface conditions. Try riding the tricycle in low speed, steering
the handlebar and experiencing the handling while performing different
maneuvers.
FAMILIARIZE YOURSELF WITH LOCAL AND STATE LAWS AND
ORDINANCES - If you plan to ride your tricycle on the streets or public
trails or bike routes, you must learn about the laws regulating bicycle
riding as well as minimum safety equipment required. Most states and
cities require the use of hand signals by all bicycle riders. Learn these
signals and use them every time you are riding on a road or street.
ALWAYS RIDE SINGLE FILE ON A ROAD OR STREET.
If you plan to use tricycle in a work place where other workers and
vehicles are present, we recommend you install safety devices such as
horn, light, bell, mirror, and safety flag. Depending on the situation, you
may need one or more of these safety devices so that you can alert
others of your presence. Please contact your HUSKY dealer if you need
more information on safety accessories.
8
CHECK YOUR TRICYCLE BEFORE YOU RIDE - Check the air pressure,
ride the bike for a few minutes and check the brakes and other safety
equipment. Make sure all components are securely attached. Pay
particular attention to the saddle, handlebar, wheel axle nuts, and pedals.
NEVER USE HEADPHONES OR DEVICES THAT MAY IMPAIR YOUR
HEARING ABILITY WHILE RIDING A BIKE - In many states it is illegal to
use headphones while riding a bicycle.
SAFE RIDING AT NIGHT
We do not recommend riding your tricycle in dark. If you have to ride at
night or in dark areas, please follow these rules:
LIGHTS - You should equip your tricycle with a high quality bicycle head
light for the front, usually mounted on the handle bar, and a blinking red
light mounted on the rear, normally below the saddle. If the rear basket is
installed, mount the rear light or reflector at the rear side of the basket
where it is visible.
REFLECTORS - Your tricycle is equipped with a set of reflectors,
mounted on the front and rear as well as on the wheel spokes. Your
tricycle should reflect light from all directions. Make sure your reflectors
are clean and mounted correctly. Please refer to Major Standard Parts
and Component section of this Manual for more information about the
reflectors. Your bicycle also comes with reflector-mounted pedals.
REFLECTIVE GEAR - We recommend you use additional reflective gear
such as reflective safety vest, reflective helmet, or safety flag. Always
wear light color apparel when riding at night. Remember, the objective is
to see and be seen at distance when riding at night.
SAFETY FLAGS - Safety flags are excellent for riding in high traffic
areas. Mounted on the rear axle and extending about 6 feet above the
ground, they allow others to spot a rider from far distance. Safety flags
are available at your HUSKY dealers.
SAFE RIDING IN WET CONDITIONS
You never know when you may get caught in a rainstorm or an afternoon
summer shower. If you ride your tricycle in your work place, you may run
into wet or slippery spots from time to time. Here are a few tips to help
make riding in wet or slick condition safer:
9
RIDE SLOWLY! - Your brakes’ performance is greatly reduced in wet
conditions. Lower speed helps you control the bike if you have to make a
sudden brake. If you live in an area where there is frequent rain or
showers, you may want to consult with your bicycle dealer about using
tires more suitable for wet conditions.
SPECIAL NOTE ON REAR COASTER BRAKE - Your tricycle is
equipped with a rear coaster brake (foot brake). It is important that you
minimize the chances of your foot slipping off the pedal when braking. Do
not ride in standing position in wet condition. Wearing shoes with nonslip rubber soles or use of non-slip pedals is highly recommended for
areas with high rate of precipitation.
ENHANCE YOUR HANDLEBAR GRIP - The handlebar is the primary
control component of your bicycle and you must be sure you have a firm
grip of the handlebar in all conditions. Using gloves when riding your bike
helps minimize loss of grip in wet conditions.
FENDERS - HUSKY offers fenders as standard equipment for most of its
products. Fenders protect the rider from water and mud splashes.
SAFE RIDING ON STREETS
LEARN ABOUT YOUR STATE AND LOCAL BICYCLING LAWS - You
should obtain a copy of your local and state bicycling laws. Many bike
shops have a copy of the laws. You can also obtain a copy at your
nearest highway patrol office or your area cycling club. Learn these laws
thoroughly; they can save you life.
DO NOT RIDE AGAINST TRAFFIC - Stay as far right as possible and
allow room for cars to pass you as easily as possible. Try avoiding twolane roads with narrow shoulder or highways with high traffic.
RIDE DEFENSSIVELY - Always give right of way to autos, and never get
into a contest with an automobile driver. Be on the look out for cars
coming into the road from driveways, parking lots, or side streets. Make
an eye contact with the driver to make sure he/she can see you.
WATCH FOR PEDESTRIANS - Use your horn or bell to make sure
pedestrians can hear you are coming or passing from behind.
WATCH OUT FOR ROAD HAZARDS - One of the most common road
hazards are pot holes, cracks in the asphalt or concrete pavement,
railroad tracks, and objects such as rocks, wires, tree limbs, or sand and
loose gravel. Any one of these hazards can cause you to lose control.
10
If necessary, dismount and walk your bike over or around the hazard. Do
not ride on railroad tracks.
BE CAREFUL AROUND PARKED CARS - When approaching parked
cars, be on the look out for people getting in or out of parked cars. Allow
a safe distance between your bike and parked cars with passengers to
avoid possible collision with open doors.
OBEY ALL TRAFFIC SIGNS - Stop at stop signs, red lights, and yield
signs. Always use hand signals when turning or stopping.
DO NOT HITCH A RIDE ON A BIKE - Never hold on to another vehicle in
order to hitch a ride. DO NOT CARRY CHILDREN OR PETS IN THE
CARGO AREA
Cargo Carrying Recommendations
Your Husky tricycle is designed to carry light cargo.
Weight
distribution of cargo is very important. Do not stack cargo too high.
Whether you use a basket, platform, or trunk for carrying cargo, make
sure that 75% of the weight is centered directly above the rear axle of the
tricycle. Do not allow cargo to extend more than 10” beyond the edge of
rear tires. Spread the load evenly in the cargo area and secure all loose
parts or boxes. Basket liners help keep small parts and objects from
falling through the basket. HUSKY offers an optional
basket liner for model T-124C.
Do not attempt to jump a curb or a speed bump. Riding on uneven
surface or jumping curb may damage the frame or fork, especially when
your tricycle is loaded.
WARNING!
Due to size and weight of Husky cargo tricycles, avoid narrow
sidewalks and off-road bicycle trails.
Also avoid roads or ramps with steep grade. When riding
down a ramp or hill, exercise extreme caution and slow down,
using both brakes. Avoid sharp turns at high speeds.
11
Major Parts and Components
The following is a brief description of major parts and components and
their functions.
FRAME AND FORK
The fork is the primary support for front wheel and handling of a bicycle or
tricycle. The fork should pivot on its steer tube freely and without any
resistance. The fork is connected to the frame by a set of bearings and
cones known as headset. If a headset is too tight, steering becomes
difficult. If it is loose, the fork will wobble resulting in damage to the
bearings and poor handling. If you lift the front wheel by the handlebar
and notice a play in the fork’s steer tube connection to the frame, tighten
the head set lock nut at the base of the stem, but do not tighten too much
or it will lock the fork and steering will be difficult.
headset
The frame is made of two sections. The front section is connected to the
fork and supports most of the rider’s weight. The rear frame supports the
most of cargo weight. The two sections are connected by large bolts and
nuts. Make sure these bolts and nuts are tight at all times.
Your HUSKY tricycle is classified as an “adult tricycle”, suitable for riding
on paved or hard packed dirt surfaces. Because of the special design of
the frame and fork, this product offers maximum comfort at lower speed.
The frame and fork is not designed for racing, jumping, riding over rough
terrain, or climbing steep hills. Heavy use of the bike or use in highly
corrosive environments such as coastal areas, chemical plants, refineries,
etc. requires frequent inspection of the frame for signs of corrosion,
fatigue, dents, bends, or cracks. If you see any such signs, have your
bicycle mechanic inspect your tricycle immediately and stop riding the
tricycle until the mechanic can verify that it is safe to ride.
12
HANDLEBAR AND HANDLEBAR STEM
The handlebar is designed so that you can enjoy riding your tricycle
without having to bend or lean forward, thus reducing pressure on back
and neck muscles. The position of the handlebar can be adjusted to raise
or lower the grip for maximum comfort.
Handlebar needs to be firmly attached to handlebar stem. You can tilt the
bar forward or backward to adjust to your riding preference.
The stem is attached to the steer tube by a stem expander bolt. To adjust
the height of the handlebar, loosen the bolt about 3 or 4 turns. Using a
rubber mallet, tap the loosened bolt down to release the expander wedge
from the head tube. You can now raise or lower the stem to the desired
height. When tightening the expander bolt, make sure that the handlebar
is straight and squared with front wheel.
CAUTION: Never raise the stem beyond the maximum level
(insertion mark) stamped on the stem.
HEADSET
As mentioned in the previous page, the headset is a very important part of
the steering mechanism of your bicycle. It distributes weight to the fork
and frame evenly and allows the fork to pivot inside the frame’s head tube
freely and with minimum friction.
A typical headset consists of two sets of ball bearings, two bearing cups
attached to each end of the frame’s head tube, bearing cones - one
stationary and the other an adjusting cone, a key washer, and a lock nut.
Headset parts
13
SADDLE AND SEAT POST
The saddle is attached to the seat post with a seat clamp. The clamp’s
binder bolt must be tight in order to prevent any movement of saddle while
riding. The clamp’s mechanism allows for the saddle position to be
adjusted. Once you adjust the saddle’s nose position for your maximum
riding comfort, you should not need further adjustments.
Seat Clamp
The saddle’s height can be adjusted by loosening the seat post binder
bolt located on the frame’s seat tube. To adjust the saddle height, twist
and pull the seat post up to the desired point and tighten the binder bolt,
making sure that the saddle’s nose is straight. If there is frequent need to
adjust the saddle height, you may consider purchasing a quick release
binder bolt. A quick release binder bolt allows loosening and tightening
the seat tube with a quick lever, without using a wrench.
Quick release seat post binder bolt
CAUTION: Do not raise the seat post above the
maximum height stamped on the seat post. If the maximum height
is not marked or not visible, make sure that at least 3” of the post
remains inside the seat tube. Failure to observe the maximum
height may result in serious injury, death, or damage to the bike.
WHEELS, TIRES & TUBES
Your tricycle has 3-24” wheels. All wheels have the same size and model
tire and tubes. Common problems are rust, dents, broken spokes, loose
axle, and low air pressure. If a wheel wobbles during a ride or has gone
out of round, you need to “true” the wheel or replace it. Truing a wheel is
a complicated procedure and is best performed by experienced bicycle
technicians. If you observe a loose spoke, you can tighten it by using a
spoke wrench. Spoke wrenches are available in different sizes and types.
The size of the wrench depends on the gauge of the spoke. You can buy
spokes from bicycle shops or order from Husky.
14
Check your tires by observing any cuts or cracks on the side wall, air
pressure, and amount of wear on the thread. A worn-out tire is not safe
for riding and is more vulnerable to road hazards.
PEDALS
Your bicycle is equipped with a set of pedals. Pedals should spin freely
around the center spindle, which is attached to the crank arms. If pedals
fail to spin or the spindle is not tightly attached to the crank arm, do not
ride the bike until the pedal is secured to the crank arm.
Bicycle pedals, like shoes, have right and left sides.
A right side pedal should not be mounted on the left side of the bike
and vice-versa. Mounting on the wrong side will cause the pedal to
loosen or fall, resulting in serious injury. Pedal axles are marked
“R” for right and “L” for left side. The thread direction for left side
pedal is reverse (turn counter clockwise to tighten and clockwise to
loosen).
FRONT BRAKE
T-124C has a linear-pull front brake (commonly known as a v-brake).
This type of brake is very powerful and responsive. When using the front
brake, exercise caution as you may loose control of the handlebar with a
sudden stop. The front brake can also be used for parking the tricycle
when not in use. To use the parking brake, simply pull the brake lever
and while holding the lever, press on the locking pin. Pulling the lever
again will release the pin.
Locking pin
DRIVE SYSTEM COMPONENTS
CRANK SET AND BOTTOM BRACKET
The crank set and bottom bracket are the main driving component of a
bicycle. Your tricycle is equipped with a hot forged one-piece crank.
Bottom bracket parts (bearings, cones and cups) support the cranking
action.
15
The crank and bottom bracket parts must be secure. As with the headset
and fork, the crank should spin on its axle through the bottom bracket
freely and without any friction or resistance.
To test the cranking action, have someone lift the rear end of the tricycle.
You should be able to crank the bike and spin the right-side rear wheel
with one hand. If you are not able to crank using one hand or you feel too
much resistance, or if the crank wobbles inside the bottom bracket, you
may have a component failure in your drive system or need to adjust the
bolts and nuts. Have the bicycle inspected by a mechanic.
CAUTION: Keep your hands and fingers away from the
spinning wheel, the moving chain, or the sprockets at all times to prevent
injury.
CHAIN AND REAR SPROCKETS
This tricycle has a split drive system. To transfer the power from the front
crank to rear axle, and provide a strong braking mechanism at the same
time, we have installed a coaster brake hub between the crank and rear
axle. When you pedal forward, power is transferred from crank to the
coaster brake hub by one chain (long chain) and then transferred from the
coaster brake hub to the rear axle by the second chain (short chain). Two
sprockets are installed on the coaster brake hub to make the power
transmission possible.
Coaster brake hub
When riding your tricycle, these chains are under constant pressure and
tension. If the chain is too loose, it may jump off the sprocket and break
16
the link between the crank set and rear wheel. If the chain is too tight, it
may warp the crank set, damage the coaster brake, or the bottom bracket
bearings. Too much tension on the small chain can cause excess
wear on the rear axle and axle sprocket.
The chain guard protects your legs and clothes from contact with moving
chain and sprocket. If you hear rattling during when riding the tricycle, the
chain may be rubbing against the chain guard. You can eliminate the
noise by adjusting the chain guard.
COASTER BRAKE HUB
For the coaster brake to operate properly, it must be centered and
securely attached to the frame. The coaster brake arm is bolted to the
arm bracket on the frame. A loose or detached coaster brake arm will
cause serious damage to the braking mechanism and the internal parts of
the coaster brake. Inspect the brake arm bolt regularly.
Coaster brake arm
REAR AXLE AND BEARINGS
T-124C model has a 17mm solid steel rear axle. The axle is supported by
eight sealed cartridge bearings on the axle housing and rear wheels. The
rear drive sprocket is mounted on the axle using an axle key and a set
screw. When the set screw is loose, the sprocket can slide to left or right
to allow correct positioning, in a straight line with the corresponding
sprocket on the coaster brake hub.
T-326 has a 25mm solid steel axle supported by two industrial pillow block
bearings. The drive-side of the axle is CNC machined for square key for
perfect fit to the hub.
17
T-326 Axle and Pillow Block Bearing
3-SPEED OPTION - Models with 3-speed coaster brake hub use
Shimano® Nexus® internal gear shifting system that is pre-set and
adjusted at the factory. Components unique to a 3-speed model are (1)
3-speed handlebar grip shifter, (2) shifter cable, (3) bell crank, and (4)
push rod. When assembling the tricycle, make sure you insert the push
rod before attaching shifter cable bell crank to the hub axle. Attach bell
crank to the hub axle and make sure the dial glass is visible when looking
vertically down over the hub. Tighten the retainer bolt after the bell crank
is properly seated. There is no need to adjust the bell crank as it is preset at the factory.
IMPORTANT!
Push rod is packed with small parts and pictured below. It is
important to insert the push rod into axle before attaching the bell
crank. Shifting will not occur without the push rod.

STEP 1 - ASSEMBLE THE FRAME
1. Place the front and rear frames on a bench and position each
part so that the connecting brackets face each other.
2. Slide the frame brackets so that they overlap. Insert 4 large
square keyed frame bolts (D) through the inside of the brackets (2
on each side) and install washers (H) and nylon insert nuts (B).
See the picture below. DO NOT TIGHTEN THE BOLTS.
3. Remove the small chain from the bag and place the chain over
the coaster brake hub and rear axle.
23
Using the connecting link, link plate, and snap-on clip supplied
with the small chain, connect the ends of the chain together.
MAKE SURE THAT THE SANP-ON CLIP IS SECURED ON THE
CHAIN PINS.
Connecting Link
4. Once the chain is securely connected, place it over the coaster
brake sprocket and rear axle sprocket. Apply tension to the chain
by pulling the front and rear frames apart. While applying tension,
tighten the frame bolts.
Make sure the rear axle sprocket is lined up with the inside
sprocket on the coaster brake hub. If the rear sprocket is not
correctly lined up, loosen the set screw and slide the sprocket on
the rear axle until it is lined up.
Set screw
The chains should not sag or be too tight. Too much tension can
cause excess wear of the rear axle, axle sprocket, and coaster
brake hub. About 3/8” of slack when pressing the center of short
chain and ½” of slack when pressing the center of long chain is
ideal.
24
5. After you have tightened the frame bolts, test the drive system
by cranking the tricycle. Remember that you can only crank in one
direction (forward). Backward cranking engages the coaster
brake. If you notice excessive pull or chain jumping, check the
chain tension and make sure that coaster brake hub is centered
on the frame. Also check the rear axle sprocket to make sure it
lines up with the coaster brake sprocket.
STEP 2 - Mounting the Wheels
T-124C rear axle has one "Drive Side" (Right) and one "Freewheel
Side" (Left). Both rear wheels on T-124C use the same hubs and
are identical. You can use them on either side. Drive side of the
axle has a flange with 3 pins that fit into the rear wheel’s hub. To
mount the drive side wheel of T-124C, remove the axle nut "A"
and washer, push the wheel over the axle so that the 3 drive pins
are inserted with the matching holes on the hub. See the picture.
Replace the washer and tighten the axle nut.
T-124C
Drive Side Pin
T-326’s drive side is different from T-124C. The drive side is
square machined to fit the drive-side wheel hub with square
machined bore. Once the wheel is properly attached to the axle,
secure the wheel with the 8mm hex bolt and aluminum hub
cap/washer. Note that the hub cap for drive side is different from
the freewheel side.

and secure the two fender braces to the front fork using the
machine screws on the fork's dropouts. Mount the wheel on the
front fork. Once you have mounted the wheel, tighten the axle
nuts.
STEP 3 - Handlebar, Brake, Pedals, Saddle
HANDLEBAR - Attach the handlebar stem by inserting it into head
tube. Adjust the stem height but DO NOT EXTEND BEYOND
"MINIMUM" MARK. Secure the stem bolt but do not tighten yet.
26
Place the handle bar on the stem, adjust the handlebar to desired
position and tighten the stem clamp screw. Now you can tighten
the stem bolt making sure that the front wheel is lined up with the
frame tube.
BRAKE - Install the brake lever on the right side of handlebar at a
position easy to reach while holding the handlebar grip area.
Leave room for the grip but do not attach the grips yet.
Run the open end of brake cable through the brake lever placing
the cable nipple in the pivoting anchor as shown in the picture.
Slide the cable housing over the cable so that the end of the
housing is inside the brake lever's adjusting barrel.

Run the other end of the cable and housing through the reflector
bracket and attach the open end of the cable to the brake set as
shown below. The cable has to be inserted through the noodle
and the brake boot. Anchor the cable to the anchor bolt and
tighten the bolt using a 5mm Allen key while holding the brake
arms in a closed position. Trim the end of the cable to desired
length and place cable end cap (J) on the cable end and press it
with a pair of pliers. Adjust the brake shoes for the recommended
gap.

SADDLE - Remove the saddle from plastic bag and place the
narrow end of the seat-post in the saddle clamp. Secure the
clamp bolts but do not tighten yet. Place the saddle with the seatpost attached in the seat tube of the frame and secure the seatpost clamp.
Adjust the height of the seat post but DO NOT EXTEND THE
SEAT POST BEYOND THE "MINIMUM" MARK. Once you have
adjusted the saddle and seat post to desired position and height,
tighten all the bolts.
MIN. Mark
PEDALS - Make sure that the right hand pedal is attached to right
and left hand pedal is attached to the left crank. Pedal spindles
are marked "R" and "L" for right and left hand. Left hand pedal is
tightened counter clockwise.
28
GRIPS - Insert the grips into handlebar. It will be easier if you wet
the inside of the grip with soapy water before inserting the grips.
Do not use oil or grease.
STEP 4 - Finishing Work
REAR FENDERS - Install the rear fenders by attaching the fender
brace to the bracket on the rear axle housing using fender
mounting bolts (G) and 16mm washers. Before tightening the
bolts, adjust the fender position so that the fenders are spaced
evenly over the wheels. You may need to bend the braces a little
to achieve the best spacing. Once the fenders are in the right
position, tighten the bolts, making sure that the bolts are tightened
evenly on both sides.
Fender Brace Clamp Bracket
Install the chain guard and reflectors.
NOTE: WHEN AIRING TIRES, MAKE SURE THAT THE TIRE
BEAD IS SEATED INSIDE THE RIM BEFORE REACHING
MAXIMUM PRESSURE.
Put about 15 PSI in the tire first, and check the tire to make sure it
is seated uniformly on the rim. Now you can finish inflating to the
maximum pressure. If you use an air compressor, make sure you
stop and check the tire frequently before you reach maximum
pressure. Air compressors air the tire too quickly and may cause
the tire to blow up or pop-off the rim if the tire is not seated
properly.
After you have finished the assembly, remove all wrappings and
pads on the frame and fenders. Check all the bolts to make sure
they are tightened. Ride the tricycle around and make sure it rides
smoothly.
29
INSTALLING REAR BASKET
To install the basket, check to make sure you have two long and
two short basket brackets along with the bolts and nuts (see the
packing list).
Attach the long brackets to the rear frame using 40mm bolt (E).
Place the basket on the long brackets making sure that the basket
is centered on the rear frame. Secure the basket to the long
brackets with the short brackets using 30mm bolt (D) as shown
below.

the Owners' Manual for suggestions and guidelines.

BASIC MAINTENANCE
You have made a wise decision on purchasing a HUSKY tricycle. To
make sure that it stays in good condition for many years of service and
riding pleasure, we suggest the following:
CLEANING AND LUBRICATION
Keeping your tricycle clean not only enhances the appearance of your
bike, but also helps maintain the performance of vital components. The
following is the recommended procedure for cleaning your bike:
1.
Do not wipe off dry dirt or mud as it can scratch the painted surface.
First wet your bike thoroughly with clean water, and then wipe off dirt
with a sponge or cloth.
2.
Remove loose dirt on the gears, chain, hubs and wheels.
3.
Wipe off wet parts with a clean dry cloth.
4.
Excess grease or gum deposits on chain and sprockets can be
cleaned using chain cleaning fluids and degreasers available at your
Husky dealer or hardware stores.
All moving components of the bike require lubrication. Certain
components such as headset, bottom bracket, and hub bearings
should be taken apart by an experienced bicycle technician and
lubricated with special bearing grease. Oil or other lubricants for
such parts should not be used.
You can lubricate the chain using special chain lubricants available at
your authorized HUSKY dealer. Refer to the lubricant manufacturer’s
instructions for proper application.
ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
If you a do-it-yourselfer, possess technical skills, and have the proper
tools for repair or maintenance of your bike, you can perform most basic
routine maintenance such as lubrication, tire/tube maintenance, adjusting
chain tension, and tightening loose nuts and bolts. Special attention
should be given to crank locknut and coaster brake axle nuts. We do
recommend that you take your bicycle to an authorized HUSKY dealer for
31
all major adjustments, wheel alignment and truing, component
replacement, tire repair or replacement.
If you ride your tricycle for more than 120 hours a month, we recommend
that you follow a regular inspection and maintenance schedule. Consult
with your authorized HUSKY dealer for a maintenance schedule that fit
your riding style and time.
FIXING A FLAT TIRE
There will be a time when you need to fix a flat tire. You can either take
the bike to a bicycle shop or fix the flat yourself. You can fix a flat
following these simple steps:
TOOLS NEEDED: 2 tire levers, one frame mounted bicycle pump, axle
nut wrench, a rag or cloth, and a tube patch kit.
1.
Remove the wheel with a flat tire. If you are removing the front
wheel, you will need to disconnect the front brake cable and brake
arm from the fork.
2.
Open the valve and squeeze the remaining air out of the tube. To
open the valve, using a small screwdriver or tip of a tire lever, press
on the valve pin.
3.
Loosen the tire bead from the rime by squeezing the flat tire and
pushing it inward. Repeat this all around the tire, making sure that
the bead is loose.
4.
Pry one side of the tire bead up over the edge and insert the tire lever
under the bead by about 1/4”. DO NOT USE ANY LEVERS WITH
SHARP POINTS SUCH AS A SCREW DRIVER OR A KNIFE.
5.
Pull the tube from under the tire, leaving the tire on the rim.
If you are on the road with a flat tire, we recommend you carry a
spare tube with you. It is much more convenient. You can patch the
flat tube later when you get back home and keep it for later use.
6.
Follow patch kit’s instructions for patching the leak. Inflate the tube
before putting the tube back to check for any other leaks. If no other
leaks are found, deflate the tube. Dismount the tire from the rim.
Feel around the inside of the tire to find the cause. Check the rim for
any damage or sharp objects. Wipe the rim and inside the tire clean.
7.
Work one side of the tire over the edge of the rim. The other side
should hang out. Inflate the tube slightly to form a round shape.
32
Start working the tube under the tire by first inserting the valve into
the valve hole.
8.
When the tube is mounted over the rim and under one side of the tire,
try pushing the other side of tire bead over the edge of the rim. Once
you reach the last 2 inches use the palm of your hand to slide the rest
of the tire over the rim. Try not using the tire lever at this time as the
lever can pinch the tube and cause a puncture. Most tires can be
mounted on the rim without the use of a tool.
9.
Check the bead of the tire and make sure you do not see any part of
the tube left out or pinched under. The bead must be seated within
the wall of the rim.
10. Inflate the tire by pumping 4 or 5 strokes. Check the tire seating and
make sure the bead is not hanging out of the edge of the rim.
11. You can now inflate the tire to the proper pressure indicated on the
sidewall. If you do not have a pressure gauge, inflate until you
cannot press the tire in more than 1/8”.
12. Screw the valve cap on the valve and install the wheel back on the
bike. When installing the front wheel, make sure that the wheel is
centered on the fork as you tighten the axle nuts.
REPLACING FRONT BRAKE SHOES
A worn-out brake shoe must be replaced as soon as the depth of rubber
thread is 1/8" or less. To replace the shoes, remove the nuts and washer
using a 5mm Allen wrench. When replacing the shoes, leave about 1mm
gap between the shoes and the wheel's side-wall. Also make sure that
the shoes are centered on the side-wall. BRAKE SHOES MUST NOT
RUB AGAINST THE TIRE OR HANG BELLOW THE WHEEL'S SIDEWALL.
