Find the joiner link on the chain, remove the retainer clip followed by the link. Remove the chain. Remove the bolt holding the brake arm to the frame. Loosen the axle bolts on the wheel enough to be able to slide the rear wheel out of its slots on the frame.

The easiest way to put on or take off a tire is to release the break cable. Bikes nowadays have a quick release for the break cables and that will release the pressure on the break pads.

You'll probably need some special tools - or take it to a bike shop and let them deal with it.

I found a very old Scwinn 26" boy's with a 3 speed coaster brake on it. I figure someone swapped it decades ago. Do you know how far back that 3 speed w/ coaster bakes goes?

Three speed Schwinn's go back to the late 50's and 60's. Just type Schwinn Photos in the command line on the internet search page area and a full page of pictures will come up. Here you may see the exact bike you purchased with the descriptions.

When coasting the pedals keep moving so you have to continue to pedal and when peddling backwards the bike goes backwards, how do I stop this?

I assume that this bike normally has a coaster brake. If so, your coaster brake mechanism (inside the hub of the drive wheel) is jammed or broken. You will have to disasssemble the wheel hub. This bike might have a coaster brake on both rear wheels or maybe just one side. Lift both rear wheels off the ground and turn them independently to determine which side the problem is on.

Coaster brake adjustment

These aren't really adjustable, but the parts that are wearing out are replaceable, and it involves disassembling the rear hub. Here is a link to a VERY thorough how-to guide, but this just covers one type of coaster brake. There are a couple of different styles, and if you have one of the older ones you can pretty much figure it out by taking it apart.

Here's the link--
good luck

The brakes are getting stuck and the wheel doesn't tuen

You do not say what kind of bike, speed bike?Coaster brake? hand brakes, pedal brake? If, it is a hand brake, it usually means that your wheel is bent and needs to be trued. You cannot adjust brakes with a bent wheel and you need a truing stand.. If it is a coaster brake you need you hub rebuilt as there is an part broken inside the hub.

How do you use the 21 speeds on the Schwinn ladies coaster bike?

there are 7 cogs on the rear wheel hub; three on the crank hub:
7x3=21 gear change possibilities
large gears move the wheel faster and farther around but, with more effort
small gears move the wheel less distance but, with less effort
i.e. 10 teeth divided by 30 teeth= 3:1 per 360 degree rotation of the bicycle wheel

It is a 3 speed coaster brake and the speed changer threaded mechanism keeps coming out of the hub because the internal mechanism is stripped. Had it repaired once and the same thing has happened again

There is very good information at this site: You can also find the info on the three speed changer here. They are fairly easy to work on if you have tools but you will have to shop around for parts. Hope this helps.
