If it's in the bearings, yes, lube or bearing replacement may be needed.

A squirt-in lube MAY penetrate the bearings but it would be a band-aid, not a fix.

There are several bearing styles out there. Some are sealed and some are loose ball bearings. Either one requires disassembly for fresh grease to be applied.

I'd get a bike shop to look at it.

I recently bought a Schwinn Meridan tricycle but it seems to be pulling to the right? what could the problem be? thank you! (looking forward to riding it on our trails here in FL)


Lots to check, rear wheel alignment would be first on my list.
measure from the center of the axle to the swing-arm pivot point on both sides of the bike, they should be the same, if not it will need to be adjusted. this is the most common problem along with under-inflated tires. If you do re-adjust the rear wheel, make sure that the belt tension is correct after.

Other things to check neck bearings,wheel bearings, brake drag, wheel balance, cable routing (make sure there is no pressure pulling on the cables with the bars centered)

1984 Yamaha Venture Squealing somewhere towards the front end of the bike.


Unhook the speedo cable at the wheel and zip tie it up somewhere safe so the cable doesn't fall out of the sheath, and test ride. If the squeal doesn't go away it's the speedometer gear or something else at the wheel. If it does go away the bearings in the speedo itself are drying out. You'd then have to pull the cluster, fit a pipe cap with a grease zerk threaded to it onto the back of the speedo, and grease with appropriate bearing grease which I believe is moly grease.

I HAVE A SCHWINN 3 WHEEL ADULT BIKE. IT IS VERY HARD TO PEDAL UP A VERY SMALL GRADE. A FRIEND TOLD ME IT NEEDS A SPROCKET. CAN YOU HELP ME? I'D APPRECIATE IT.


Trikes are normally not made to ride much more then just around the block do going up even the smallest grade will be difficult. You could change the gearing but I suggest looking into adding a 3 speed hub if you are planning to ride more then a couple miles or live in a hilly area. You should contact your local bike shop.

Hope this helps!

Pedals can be purchased in pairs and some road bikes do not come with pedals. They have 2 different axle sizes 9/16" and 1/2". There are road pedals and road clipless pedals.The ones with clips and quick bindings require special biking shoes that the cleats clip into.Quick releases come in various lengths for front and rear wheels depending on what wheel you have. This all means a trip to your local bicycle dealer. They will match the pedals to the axel size you need and the type of riding you will be doing. For a little extra cost they will install them.They will also match you up with the proper length of quick release skewer you will need and show you how to install and tighten it properly.Remember to take your bike and the front wheel. Hope this helps. Good riding.
