SOURCE: How to disassemble crank bearing on Schwinn Mesa Mountain Bike

You wil need a couple of special tools, or be fairly creative with the tools you have.

  1. remove the dustcovers in the crank arms at the crank axle
  2. loosen the crank retaining nut/bolt.
  3. thread in a chank puller and pull the crank arms.
  4. remove the lock ring on the adjustable side of the crank axle (Requires lock ring wrench)
  5. remove adjustable bearing cup.
  6. remove axle and bearings
  7. replace or repair as needed.
Once you have it opened up ou can determine if you need new bearings or crank axle.
to assemble, reverse above procedure, insuring bearing play is minimalized.

Hope this helps.
Ed

SOURCE: Adjusting seat on a Women's Schwinn Jet Star 26" bike

It sounds like the bike you bought was too big for you. Your only option here is to replace the seatpost with one that does not have this feature. You can pick up a seatpost at a bicycle shop and they should install it for you, too, if they are a good shop.

Hope this helps a little,

SOURCE: Can I add a front hand brake to my Schwinn Electra

If there is a hole in the crown of the front fork (look directly above the tire where the two fork blades come together) then you can attach a brake.

You will want to go into your local bike shop and have them install the brake properly. They will also be the ones to tell you which type of brake will work with your fork/ rim combination. This is easy when the bike is in front of a qualified mechanic, but impossible without seeing it.

I found a very old Scwinn 26" boy's with a 3 speed coaster brake on it. I figure someone swapped it decades ago. Do you know how far back that 3 speed w/ coaster bakes goes?


Three speed Schwinn's go back to the late 50's and 60's. Just type Schwinn Photos in the command line on the internet search page area and a full page of pictures will come up. Here you may see the exact bike you purchased with the descriptions.

When coasting the pedals keep moving so you have to continue to pedal and when peddling backwards the bike goes backwards, how do I stop this?


I assume that this bike normally has a coaster brake. If so, your coaster brake mechanism (inside the hub of the drive wheel) is jammed or broken. You will have to disasssemble the wheel hub. This bike might have a coaster brake on both rear wheels or maybe just one side. Lift both rear wheels off the ground and turn them independently to determine which side the problem is on.

Coaster brake adjustment


These aren't really adjustable, but the parts that are wearing out are replaceable, and it involves disassembling the rear hub. Here is a link to a VERY thorough how-to guide, but this just covers one type of coaster brake. There are a couple of different styles, and if you have one of the older ones you can pretty much figure it out by taking it apart.

Here's the link--

Bike chain skipping


Bike chains are slightly different determined by amount of cogs on rear sprocket. If you havent changed the chain, adjust the tension of chain.If tension is ok-sprocket would be damaged(teeth worn,slightly rounded)but if same prob on different gear, chain tension/incorrect size chain is problem.
Hope this has been helpful..

How do you set up brakes after changing tube? What is the position of the lock washers - inside or outside of frame?


The lockwashers go outside the frame, right next to the nuts. But I would need more info to answer the brakes question. Schwinn called lots of bikes "Jaguar". If this a single-speed bike with a coaster break, then you can Google images for COASTER BRAKE..

It is a 3 speed coaster brake and the speed changer threaded mechanism keeps coming out of the hub because the internal mechanism is stripped. Had it repaired once and the same thing has happened again


There is very good information at this site:http://sheldonbrown.com/coaster-brakes.html You can also find the info on the three speed changer here. They are fairly easy to work on if you have tools but you will have to shop around for parts. Hope this helps.
