Question about Schwinn 12" Roadster Tricycle
When I try to spin either rear wheel of our new Schwinn Roadster, they only spin a quarter revolution, whereas the front wheel spins ~7 revolutions with the same force. Do they just need some lubricant or do I need to take the wheels apart (the rear wheels came pre-assembled)? My 3 and 5 year olds can't even ride it down the street because the resistance makes it so difficult to pedal. Any thoughts would be much appreciated!! Thanks!
Its not the fenders, I have removed them. Its a design flaw with the black plastic axel spacers. The rim of the wheel cant spin without them spinning. They cant spin unless the washers and nuts holding them on are loose. I even tried wd-40 to get them spinning with little or no relief. I have to re loosen the bolts after each use. Good looking bike, but this issue makes me want to part it out on ebay.
