The brake that you are adjusting go to that wheel. On that wheel you will see a brake pad on each side of the wheel. To adjust tighter you squeese these two brake pads together, you will see a wire, there will be a nut that they wire goes through, loosen the nut and squeese brake pads together, then tighten nut back up. your hand brake will now be adjusted.

How many ball bearings are there supposed to be on each side of the front axle of the Schwinn Point Beach model S4852WM bike?

There will always be a small gap in the bearing ring, and not all hubs take the same amount. However, if the balls are 3/16" there are almost always 10 on each side. If they are 1/4 inch (less common) then 9 is the correct amount. DO NOT replace only some of them - replace only in a full set of 20 or 18.

The hand brake on the schwinn won't bounce back after squeezed. which causes the tires not to roll smoothly. can you help

More than likely the problem is on the brake or the brake cable. Corrostion builds up on the cable and restricts cable movement. The other item could be the springs on the brake itself need adjustment. To lube the cable remove the cable from the housing, use a light grade oil on the cable and lube the inside of the cable housing also TriFlpw is an excellent lubrication.

How do i adjust the brakes on a schwinn stingray low rider bicycle? the front brakes dont grip the wheel enough to stop and the rear is rubbing on one side. thanks


Let us start with the rear. The brake arms will have a small screw located on them near the pivot. You can screw these in to adjust the relation of the pad to the rim. You can also (if that didn't take care of it) remove the brake arm and move the spring's pin to the next hole to make sure it properly clears itself.
The front can be tightened on the brake levers with the adjustment barrel, or, if that is already fully turned out, turn it all the way back in and release the cable at the brake itself and retighten it when you have adequately adjusted the brake there.
Check out's repair help page (located at the top right hand of their homepage) for excellent detailed and illustrated help in bike maintenance.

Hope this helps a little,

The right pad on the back hand brake is rubbing.

One side of a center-pull brake can be adjusted by tightening or loosening the cable itself (the side with a screw holding the cable in place)
The other side will have a small screw to adjust the tension on the spring.
Sounds like you need to adjust your spring tension screw.

Give it a full (360-degree) rotation and work the brakes a few times. If the problem is worse, then you need to adjust it the other way. If it's getting better, then you're getting closer.
Make several small adjustments, and work the brakes a few times after each one, and you should be all set.
