Hi, As your BMX has 3 piece cranks. Here is how to go about it:

1. Unscrew the plastic cap on the side of the crank - driveside.

2. Take your 14 mm socket and ratchet, unscrew the bolt that holds the crank to the axle. Remove the bolt of both cranks(Left and Right). You can squeeze the handle of the ratchet and the crank together like pliers to give you more leverage.

3. Take the puller and screw it's socket inside the threaded hole of the crank. Hold the crank and turn the puller handle clockwise until the crank arm falls off from the axle by itself. Remove both crank arms.

4. Go to the left side and with the pliers firmly held with both of your hands(This is where the pictures differ, I'm taking a picture at the same time.), unscrew the lockring from the bearing cup.

5. Now again firmly with both hands, grab the bearing cup with the pliers and slowly test the resistance. You do not want to slip here since this will definitely strip the thread on that cup. Hold those pliers hard and go slowly, it should get it going within a quarter turn and then you should be able to unscrew it with your fingers. If not, keep on going and be careful. Remove the cup.

6. Remove the axle and bearing crowns from both sides.

7. Remove the right side bearing cup by unscrewing it in a clockwise fashion. The notch are not very wide, so might have to hold the pliers on the cup with one hand and the handles with the other. Be aware that this cup is often very hard to remove. Again, you can always purchase a specialised wrench just for that purpose.

8. Clean and inspect everything. What you are looking for is a clean and even line on the axle and inside the bearing cups. Any pits in that line will damage the bearings and they will eventually self destruct. Replace any parts that need replacing.

9. Regrease everything, the axle, the cups and the bearings. I use regular green axle grease with a touch of white teflon grease. Make sure that everything you've pulled out of that frame is extra clean, including the hole in the frame where it came from. The most minute piece of dirt can ruin your repack job.

10. Start by installing the right side bearing cup. Screw it in counterclockwise real tight. Insert the bearings and the axle. Insert the bearings in the left bearing cup and screw on the frame. Screw it until you feel resistance. Test to see if the axle turns freely and tug it up and down to see if there is any play. No play? Turns freely? If the answer is yes to both questions, install the lockring on the left bearing cup.

11. Reinstall the crank arms tightly. I would check them again in a few weeks to be sure. When you think it's tight enough, tighten some more. That's it, you're done.

Hope this helps and please vote if so :)

There is a metal shim needed in the bike/pedal that has to be tapped in to keep the pedal tight. If you dad has used the bike for several hundred miles and/or his feet might actually bend the pedals over time (weight), it is possible the metal piece that the pedal attaches to could become bent slightly, and I have seen a few bikes, that need to be taken to the bike repair store (call a large bicycle/itness store) that has a good repair shop and they often can repair these, but rarely less than $125 for an Airdyne repair/tuneup.

the little balls are the bearings, ie: ball bearings, so they are the size, take them to a bike shop and get a replacement kit.
Your crank is probably not bent , it takes a big crash or something to bend one. there is an adusjment nut and lock nut to set them back up. could be LH thread on the left hand side

When was the first BMX bike invented?


Hard to put an exact date on it because BMX evolved from kid's mimmicking their motocross heroes on dirt hills using 20" bikes (typically Schwinn Stingrays).

The first bicycle made specifically to mimmick the motocross riders that early BMX riders were mimmicking was the Yamaha Moto-Bike in 1973.

BMX became "official" in 1974 when George E. Esser founded the NBL, which officially sanctioned BMX races.

The first official BMX bike (bike made specifically for the sport of BMX), with the frame design as we know it today, was in late 1974 with the introduction of the Redline Squareback.

Bad crank bearings can move crank arms small amount.


That would depend on the style of bearings (loose ball or caged balls vs sealed bearings) and possible bottom bracket damage.

Either way, a Bike Shop mechanic would probably need to assess it for you. Special tools are usually involved.

Go here, there's a pdf manual for all schwinn's bought at WalMart,Targets etc. between 2004 and 2007. I just got one yesterday and had no manual either. This seems to have about all you'll need.
