    I was recommended that I greased up my wheel bearings on my huffy cranbrook. So I did. I hope Multi-purpose lithium greace works well. I cant seem to get it all back together to fit snug. The cone nut needs to connect w/ the whatchamacallit in order for the coaster break to work properly. I tried so many times but couldnt get it right. My last resort is to take it to a shop. But I would hate to pay some bike shop for some easy work. But if I cant get help I guess I have no other choice.

    do a google search for "coaster brake repair." there's plenty of sites that have in-depth descriptions of how to do it right.

    they can be a real pain, but once you figure it out, it's not that hard.

    It just came to my mind. The coaster break to me is a PAIN. I was just thinking about using front and rear breaks and having a freewheel.
