Question about Schwinn Mesa Gs Mountain Bike
The crank arm is stripped on the left side and the pedal falls off. Is there a suggested approach to repair/replace the crank arm?
Yes, the crank-arm could be replaced.
1.You would need to remove the flat nut holding the crank to the frame. And then take out the bearing.
2. A special open-ended wrench is required to remove this nut. Please visit your local bicycle shop for a new crank-arm, and the required tools, also.
3. Put in new crank-arm and its bearing.
4. Grease the bearing.
5. Tighten nut.
6. Give it a test ride.

Testimonial: "Thanks very much for your assistance. I have ordered the crank arm and will follow your input."
Above instructions are inaccurate, incomplete and not applicable to most situations. You would be better to Google "replace left crank arm" and follow the instructions that match the type of arm you have. Best yet if you have a bike co-op nearby go to them for assistance and use of their tools.
