Flat tire, S500

Our son ''jumped'' his Schwinn S500 scooter onto a sharp object and pierced the tire and the inner tube. We've got the replacement tube. How does he change out the bad inner tube?

The wheel will have to be removed firstly.
Then with something blunt, (like a spoon handle, not too flexible, and smooth,)
carefully pry up the bead of the tyre over the rim of the wheel, now it's easier to take a second lever or spoon handle, and repeat the process, a couple of inches away from the first.
Then you should easily be able to run the smooth lever, around the tyre and rim, to expose the tube.
Then push the valve through the wheel, if neccesary, and remove the tube.
You should also inspect the inside of the tyre, thoroughly, to make sure that there isn't anything in there that shouldn't be.
After you are sure all is well, just reverse the procedure.
Just make sure that the tube does not get 'pinched' between the tyre and wheel.
Hope that helps.

I have a Schwin Solution FS AL mountain bike. I would like to put road tires on it. It now has 50-507 (24X1.95) on the side wall of the knobby tires. What road tire would fit?

I have done a similar thing with my mountain bike. The first number is the size of your wheel. The second number is how thick your tire is. You can get any road tire that has a "24" in the first number of the 24X***. Depending on the number after the 'X' you will probably need to get an inner tube that falls within that size. Most of the inner tubes will have a range for that second number. If the number is too large the inner tube will not fit inside the road tire.

Anyone know why the tube keeps blowing in my sons kx 85> We can't keep a tube in it. It's on the rear. We have put 8 tubes in this year.

Do you have a rim strip to protect the tube from the spokes? Is the rim damaged from tire irons or a sharp burr where the tube might contact it? A broken or missing spoke? Did you take a rag and wipe the inside of the tire to look for sharp objects? After the rag did you feel around with your hand ? You do have to be very careful not to fold over the tube or pinch the tube with the tire iron, the tire bead, or the rim lock.Maybe you are running to low of an air pressure for the type of riding (jumping) you are doing. Maybe the brand of tube you are using is too light of a duty for off road riding.You may want to check into the heavy duty tubes available for off road use.

I have a flat tire; we have replaced the inner tube once already--How do I get a new tire?


Before just replacing the tyre (if it's still OK), a flat may be caused by a sharp object sticking through the tyre, puncturing the tube. Carefully check the inside surface of the tube with your fingers for sharp objects.
The Freestyle 4 uses generic 12" tyres but the thread may be quite specific. The stroller may have come with 'slick-type' tyres that are no longer available. The newer Freestyles come with these tyres:

I hope this helps.

With kind regards,

Flat rear tire

A bike shop may be able to help you. Maybe you could just repair the tube with a tube repair kit, available anywhere bicycle accessories are sold.

Flat tire on Schwinn S350 electric scooter

Schwinn is a American company, so have no fear of your propose situation happening. But removing the chain is simple just un screw the motor and pull it out. After that the chain will be lose.
And for changing the tire follow my tire changing guide.
