Question about Schwinn 12" Roadster Tricycle

7 Answers

We bought a Schwinn 12'' Roadster the end of November for our Granddaughter. One of the rear innertubes exploded, and we have been to 6 stores, including 2 Schwinn, and researched online, and cannot find a replacement tube. This is ridiculous! How can you build and sell something when it is impossible to find a part! Please send us the information we need to replace this tire!! Thank you!!!

    We have the same problem. The tire is 10X2 - an impossible size to find. I just e-mailed Schwinn and am hoping to hear from them how to find a new inner tube. If anyone else hears of where to get one, please lt me know.

    My son's front tire just went flat and it won't keep air. I haven't pulled of the tire yet...but the online descriptions say the wheels are hook bead. Doesn't that mean tubeless tires? If so may be the beads came undone?

    This website shows a trick for strapping the tire to reseat the bead, then pumping with air until it seats.

    I'm going to give this a shot to see if it works.

    I too had a innertube blow out on the back tire of a schwinn 12' roadser and have been looking for 5 months and can not find a replacement tube. I agree this is insane. 65 dollar trike with no replacement tube. If they don't have a replacement tube then they sould replace the trike or better still gibe us our money back.

I called Pacific Cycle this morning (9-13-2009) and was able to buy 2 tubes for $10.60 with shipping to Illinois. Not a great solution, but still a solution. If you look on the bottom of the trike, there is a model number a date code and the customer service number. Call that number and tell them you need new rear inner tubes. They were less than $3 an inner tube, but then don't forget to add shipping and handling.

I saw a comment on Amazon where someone had tire problems and contacted Pacific Cycle and they sent a replacement tube. Good luck I'm trying to replace a broken seat.

I would go to ebay and look for that innertube.  It does not have to be schwinn.  if you look on the innertube you have now it should give dimensions..like 12.5" X 2.25" or 12-1/2" X 2-1/4".

I had trouble finding a 10x2" tube for a jogging stroller. The local bike shops didn't have them, InSTEP didn't have them (ridiculous!), but I found help right. My local bike shop Bike Bling here in Escondido recommended to put in a 12" tube. They even offered to replace it for me. $4 and 5 minutes later I was in and out the shop. Great customer service!

Any bicyle shop and many hardware stores could help you. Look at the sidewall of each tire and find the size embossed on it. It will be in the form of "diameter x width" Use THAT information in your quest. Perhaps look online/eBay.
