Question about Schwinn Cycling

1 Answer

I have a Schwinn Ditch mountain bike with front disc brakes and a quick release front tire. I pooped the tire off using the quick release on the hub and the tire simply slipped off and out of the disc brake assembly. Putting it back together is posing to be a problem. I can not get the disc to seat into the brake assembly (between pads) without it locking up??? I have the tire back on the bike but it will not spin it seems locked up? If there is a correct process to this procedure could someone help me out with it. Thank you Kindest regards Jim

You have to bleed the break fluid on your break and press the pads on both sides then insert the disc. When you bleed the break fluid do not press the lever.

Bike rim change 26x1.95 to 27x1.25 on Mountain bicycle


If you're saying you want to keep your old hubs and install roadie-sized rims so you can use road-friendly and efficient tires you're looking at an expensive and wasteful project. The hubs would be the only parts that are potentially re-usable. I seriously doubt the rims you have right now are 1.95" wide. I have several mountain bikes and many wheelsets and not a single one that I can't put anything from 26x2.25 to 26x1.10" tires on. At 100-plus psi the little tires are hard as rocks and roll nice.

If you DON'T have disc the whole project is a non-starter becuase you can't arbitrarily change wheel sizes on a rim-brake-equipped bike. Disc brakes would require you to have disc-specific hubs so search the web for "700c disc wheelset" that match your disc size (if you have disc).

If you want to DIY you'll need some special tools and skills.

Then you'll have to select rims and find an online spoke length calculator so you can order the precise lengths you'll need, assuming you have data for your rims and your hubs.

Look online or eBay, too.

A Bike Shop might be willing to lace on new rims and spokes to your hubs but it will be expensive and you would be destroying presumably fucntional MTB wheels. By the time it's all ordered and installed it would probably have been cheaper and more reliable to have just purchased new wheels.

Just got this bike it was unassembled. The instruction manual had a different front axle than mine. Mine has the quick release and I can't get the tire tight. I think I am putting the quick release...


on my tips and tricks page are links to owners manuals for Schwinn and Huffy. they are all the same, Those respective websites with the links have clear instructions on quick releases.

Your quick release has three parts
1. shaft with lever
2. nut
3. springs x 2

Take the lever apart, remove the nut and both springs. install one spring large side onto the shaft all the way up against the lever side, slide the shaft through the hub axle center, install the other spring on the shaft opposite the lever small side facing the hub, then screw on the nut. look to the video for the rest.

Can you put mountain bike rims or wheels on a road bike?


Yes, but not without consequences. The front wheel will probably fit, but the brakes won't reach the rim and it's likely that the tire will get squeezed by the fork.
A modern rear MTB hub is 135 mm wide, while a modern road hub is 130 mm, so there's your first problem. Then you'll also have the same issues with brakes not reaching and tire clearance as you had for the front.

Bikes with disc brakes can sometimes take different wheel sizes w/o any further issues, but keep in mind that pedal clearence will change.

I have an otero mongoose bike how do i take the front tire off


The front wheel is removed by releasing the quick release located at the bottom of the fork. The tire can be removed by deflating the tire and then levering off the tire itself using a set of special removal tools.

I am having trouble putting the front tire on my Schwinn Merge 26'' Women's Mountain Bicycle


The easiest way to put on or take off a tire is to release the break cable. Bikes nowadays have a quick release for the break cables and that will release the pressure on the break pads.
