    Greetings! I'm new here and have a question.....
    What wide crank will fit a 26" Huffy "Back Water" mountain bike? Looks like "Gas Bikes" has various kits, just not sure which one fits this bike. Do I need the conversion kit or not? Thanks in advance for your help.

    I don't know for sure, but my guess is YES.
    Be careful... I had a problem with same vendor and their 3 day return policy.
    I ordered a wide crank, without conversion. A week later I realized I needed the conversion. They do not sell the conversion seperatly. So I ordered a wide crank WITH conversion and attempted to return the one without. They attempted to deny the return due to their 3 day return policy.
    My advise is to find another vendor!

    Thanks Springfieldscooter! So, did the conversion kit work on your Huffy bike?

    I was working on a Micargi, not Huffy.

    The conversion kit was needed on the Micargi, and worked very well.

    Just align everything up, use locktite, and slowly tighten the screws evenly....Do not force them, as Ive seen other people snap the bolts!
