Question about Schwinn Cycling

1 Answer

Just bought a Schwinn Ranger 26" bike for my son. Made sure the brakes were alligned and the gears shifted properly. Tried to adjust the seat, but couldn't move it up or down. Is there a trick to it? Don't remember having this problem when I was a kid.

I have purchased a schwinn veracruz need an owners manual can't find a veracruz on the list of bicycles


They don't break out garden variety bikes. As a bike is just a static frame with a bunch of aftermarket stuff thrown on it, generic manuals work well. Try one that fits, say, where it was bought.

Use a Search Engine for specific questions like adjusting brakes or shifting and you will find many videos.

I always start here...

My gears are slipping. how can i adjust them? the problem seems to be more in the 5th, 6th and 7th gear. this is a schwinn ranger mountain bike 2.6. it actully just started giving me a problem.


Sounds like your cable has stretched a bit and now the tension is off. There is a barrel adjuster where the cable comes into the rear derailleur. Turning this barrel too the right will increase the slack and turning it too the left will take up some slack.

Shift your gears to the middle of the cassette, then try turning the barrel 1/4 turn to the left, shift and see if it shifts into gear, if not shift back and adjust the tension again. Keep repeating till the gears line up.

if this does not work then it's time to take into a bike shop.

My son has a 26"


The disc brakes may seem like a new a completely different technology, but really they adjust basically the same as rim brakes. Both of your problems sound like the cables have too much slack in them. There is a mounting bolt for the cables at the brake, loosen that, pull the cable taught, tighten the bolt and squeeze the levers again. If that is better and the brakes don't drag, there you go.

If it still doesn't fix the brakes, then it is time to consider taking the bike into a bike shop and letting the mechanic have a look.

Hello there! My mom just bought me a $300 Schwinn Melee from a Fred meyers in Newport Oregon. Beautiful Bike However there wasn't any instructions about the Shimano gear shifters. I'm doing something...


first identify the problen is it front or rear derailuer.secondly bike shop mechanic hate cheap mass produced bikes because they do not sell them
so lets solve your problem,okay sometimes this can be an adjustment issue.now if its bunching on front then first read your owners manual to see which gears are compatible,sometimes it will suggest not using certain gears,secondly if yhe chain has fallen off and got jammed it may be bent and need replaced visually confirm if the chain is straight.okay if it is not the chain then the length and length adjustment can be changed using the adjustment on the rear derailuer look and you will see 3 screws located on it the two with L /H are for adjusting the gear stops l is for low gears,so it does not go too far and wedge between the gear and spokes,H is for the small gear(high)if it goes past and falls off adjust this one.lastly the one located at the very rear adjusts chain tension the loosening of this one will relax the chain and apply more chain on the gears   tightening of this one will tighten the chain,adjusted properly your chain should not bow down over adjustment will cause chain skips.now if there is too much slack in the cable that is adjusted by the adjusters on the ends of the cable where it meets the shifters,learning to adjust your bike will save you a lot of money in the long run.
hope this helps

It keeps shifting gears


If you bought it at a real bicycle shop, take it back and have them tweak the derailleur cable tensions. That's usually an expected free service they would provide after a reasonable break-in period.

Or take it to a real Bike shop and pay a few bucks for them to do it.

Or take a stab at it yourself using the expert advice at Park Tools...

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,
matt
