1 inch threaded. I would suggest you take the bike into a bike shop and have them give you all the specifics related to replacing the fork. You are going to be very limited as too replacements if you use the original headset, Also you need to know the steerer length of both the original (measure your bike) and the fork you will use. This may need to be cut and threads chased, that requires special tools.

Bottom line take the bike into your local shop, have them take a look and make sure the project is going to fit your budget for this bike.

Schwinn 12 Roadster trike-handlebar does not fit into fork steer. Handlebar & fork have approx. same circumference, so can't slide it in. Is the handlebar defective & needs to be replaced? Thanks!

I assume you mean the handlebar stem does not fit into the fork steerer. Approximately the same diameter is not good enough. The stem has to be the correct size for the fork. The two most likely sizes are 22.2mm and .833 inches (21.15mm). Most stems have the size stamped near the bottom. There's a good chance your trike has a .833 steerer. Stems for that size are still available.

I’m happy to help further over the phone at

I just bought a Schwinn Discovery and the front fork is loose in the frame. When I hit the brakes, the fork rocks back and forth. I am not sure how to tighten it up?

If you bouht it from a Bike Shop, make them do it. And complain.

If you bought it at a box store don't bother, they're incompetent.

Scroll down to Headset Assembly

Remember, the side bolts on the stem loosen it so adjustment can be made with the top cap bolt. You tighten the side bolts to lock in that adjustment. The top cap bolt is only for MAKING the adjustment, not KEEPING it.

The left pedal to my Schwinn Windwood women's cruiser will NOT go in. I have verified that it is the left pedal and had no issues getting the right pedal in. What can I do?

Answered in your previous post, The left pedal is opposite threading. You screw the pedal in the same direction as the right side - toward the front of the bike.

Facing right side crank - Right pedal screws in normal, toward the front of the bike.

Facing left side crank - Left pedal screws in counterclockwise, toward the front of the bike.

Can I add a front hand brake to my Schwinn Electra Huli Huli Bike? It only has coaster brakes now. Thanks.

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 need help putting together the front forks/handlebar assembly

Hi in the headset there is a ballbearing set for the top and bottom. Insert fork through position. From the top you can slide the handlebar over the extension. Make sure that you align correctly. Then fasten with the allen key.

I recently tried to install a set of springer forks on my Schwinn cruiser bicycle. After putting it all together EXACTLY like the old forks had been installed, it still seems to have some crazy "play" in...

The headset bearings need to be vertically loaded precisely: tight enough to eliminate the play you notice yet loose enough to allow free steering. It's as much an art as it is a science. Your safety and the bearings are at risk as it sits now. Get it to a real bike shop or someone who knows bikes and has the right tools and knowledge to adjust it.

I need a drawing to reassemble my Schwinn Tiger, can you help?

I don't know the year or size of your bike, but schwinn's website has manuals from '03 to '07 online.
If the bike is older, I can only suggest searching the internet for photos of your bike. Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words.
Good luck!

Schwinn women's 26" Windwood front fender doesn't fit correctly.

You have it on backwards.  I had the exact same problem.  Turn the fender around so that the arms that connect to the axel are pointing forward.  They are going to be almost parallel to the ground.  Easy Peasy lemon Squeezy.
