    My left side pedal snapped off when I was riding today

    I know it’s just a cheap cranbrook from Walmart is there an easy way to fix this or would it just be better to go to a bike shop and get a whole new crank set for it that might be a better quality? Thanks for any help.

    Sounds like piston is hitting spark plug...

    Hi everyone. In the last couple days, I've noticed what I can best describe as a "clinking" noise when it idles or when I try to ride.

    Chain binding problem

    My bike is fully built but when you try to crank the pedals the chain feels like it's binding with a notable amount of resistance. I believe the chain is lined up best as possible but I also noticed that when i rotate the pedals the chain partially tries to jump off the rear sprocket. It has a...
