    I am not sure if you mean (1) it is rubbing against the wheel rim all of the time, or you mean (2) it rubs against the rubber tire. Is this just on one side, or on both sides? Can you explain a bit more?

A simple fix is to give the brakes a really good squeeze and this will stretch the cable just a little and should stop them from rubbing. If how ever the rubbing is happening on just one part of the wheel then your wheel may be warped and need repairing by a cycle shop.

What year was my schwinn make the serial number is ty60400276? get back to me asap i would like to know so i can get my tires fixed


You don't need to know the year of any bike to fix it. VERY old Schwinns (early 60's and before) used their own tire sizing (will say S5 or S6 along with tire size) but all you have to do is read the size printed on the tire and get the same size. If you are still concerned about what year your Schwinn is just Google "Schwinn serial number," but be aware that there is less info on more recent bikes that were made overseas. They are most easily dated by model name, color scheme and equipment. Again, they model year has nothing to do with how to repair it.

I have a Schwinn women's 21 speed Frontier. Frame in purple serial #0378. I wanted to know the year and specs. On it? Thank you!


First thing, is headbadge black and red? Does it say it was made in China, either on the headbadge or somewhere else on the frame. If so, the bike has no value as an antique bicycle. If its in running condition, tires hold air, brakes work and gears shift its about a $60 to $ 75 bike

How do i adjust the fenders on the schwinn meridian trike so they don't rub on the tires?


The real problem is with the lack of serious fender mounting hardware from Schwinn. There needs to be a solid one piece brace connecting both fenders and attaching to frame at the seat support.

These fenders will wobble and bend with little or no effort or pressure. A SERIOUS DESIGN FLAW!!! SHAME ON SCHWINN ENGENEERSa09fa725-94b1-4de7-ac1b-7d7fc027737a.jpg

The brakes are rubbing against the tire. How do you adjust them?


Your wheel is probably bent and has to be trued. You cannot adjust your brakes without the wheel being straight. You will have to take it to get serviced unless you have a truing stand and a good quality spoke wrench.
