Question about Schwinn Cycling
I have Schwinn bike in my shed and found #s on it under the pedals they read SE407204 how do I find out year and if worth anything?
I don't remember hearing about any important numbers being under the pedals. Pedals are detachable, so you wouldn't put an important number there. The bike serial number is usually stamped on the round tube that houses the pedal mechanism, the central plate that a kick stand is attached to or at the back and usually on the left hand side. Honestly there's million's of barely used bikes out there ( we in the USA are notorious for buying bikes and then not using them) and I doubt you've got one worth more than 25$. If it's been in the shed, then the tires and tubes are probably flat and dry rotted. It'll cost about $40 to replace the tires and tubes, so keep that in mind. Now if you've got a "Stingray" or something with a banana seat, you could get around 200$ for it. Remember a bike is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. Oh yeah, if you still think you've got something special, go to EBay and see what something similar to it has sold for.

Check the tightness of the crank bearings, also the crank fastening nuts (on axle) If its the gears you may have to turn the screws on the rear derailleur to adjust the tracking. The same as the front. Your question is kind of vague so its hard to pinpoint the clicking noise. Could even be a stone in the tire??lol

i cannot see any problems with wd40 on any bike and have used it myself for many years.
just wipe away any excess, and do not spray it on the pedal tops (where your shoes go) as they may get slippery.
light oil (3in1 or simillar) is also excellent on bikes instead of wd40. same advice as above.
i find wd40 works faster, especially on squeaks, but oil works for longer.
i usually use wd40 first to cure the imediate noise, and then use a few drops of the oil to keep it quiet for longer.
hope this helps

My rear wheels on my Meridian will not move. The peddles mover, the gears move, the wheels do not I can feel something slipping. I called several bike shops and they tell me that its an adjustment that needs to be doen to the rear axle, and that its not covered under the warranty. Help I've only had the Trike a week.
