My brakes are dragging on my 7 speed Schwinn cruiser?


Possibly to tight, there is a adjustment either at the toop of the brake or at the brake lever, check to see if it can be loosen. Brakes don't just start dragging. Something has to change for this to occur. Brakes do wear, which limits the stopping of the bike. If there is no adjustment, I suggest taking to your local bike shop for assistance

Bike chain skipping


Bike chains are slightly different determined by amount of cogs on rear sprocket. If you havent changed the chain, adjust the tension of chain.If tension is ok-sprocket would be damaged(teeth worn,slightly rounded)but if same prob on different gear, chain tension/incorrect size chain is problem.
Hope this has been helpful..

Can I add a front hand brake to my Schwinn Electra Huli Huli Bike? It only has coaster brakes now. Thanks.


If there is a hole in the crown of the front fork (look directly above the tire where the two fork blades come together) then you can attach a brake.

You will want to go into your local bike shop and have them install the brake properly. They will also be the ones to tell you which type of brake will work with your fork/ rim combination. This is easy when the bike is in front of a qualified mechanic, but impossible without seeing it.

Schwinn Meridian rear brake squeak. Goes away with slight pressure on hand lever. Solution? Thanks.


The brake pads should be "toe'd" in, that is, the front part of the brake pad should touch the rim first when the brakes are applied. This should only be an adjustment of 2-3mm when you look at the pad compared to the wheel rim.
Another possibility is the age of the brake pads. As they get older, they get harder and lose their pliability. Their harder surface can cause squeaking, and poorer braking performance. You can try sanding them down with coarse sandpaper as a stop-gap, but for the relatively low cost of new ones, replacement is a much better option.

I have a new trike that may have ome shipping damage (bought at flea market) The rear axel appears to be bent. severe wheel wooble. is there some adjustment in those set screw type bolts in the center of...


The set screws in the center of the axle are there to keep the axle centered in the frame. Only the right wheel is powered which also means only the right wheel brakes when operating the rear brake. This is because the rear wheels must be able to spin independently when turning because the outside wheel will move faster. Unfortunately no one builds differentials at this price.

If you have wheel wobble you need to determine if the axle is bent or the wheel is not true. Prop up the rear of the bike on a stand and remove the problematic wheel. Manually pedal the bike and check the axle as it spins. If the axle is wobbling then it is bent and will need to be replaced. If it spins true then the wheel is the culprit.

The axle is relatively inexpensive and can be ordered through a Schwinn dealer. Any bike shop should be able to true a wheel for around $15-$20.
