Take a little trip to www.schwinn.com They have instruction manuals, videos and most importantly a customer service line with someone that can walk you through their specific product.

It should not be that difficult for someone who is not a novice to put the trikes together, something is definitely wrong. Double check on the schwinn site that you have the correct assembly manual and parts list. You still have time, don't panic yet.

Smartrike front wheel won't turn with pedals once on the ground


Old question but I just needed the answer and figured it out. On one side of the wheel there is a disc with two arrows, line this arrows up with the arrows on the wheel and push the disc into the wheel until it clicks into place. Pull it out to convert back to a stroller.

My huffy stalker fs front wheel and handle bars keep getting off misalgnment


Tighten the bolt that is in the center of the handlebar piece. As well as the nuts/bolts on the lower part of the shaft that comes up and connects to the handle bars. Hard to explain. But just align things right, and tighten everything up on the entire wheel/handlebar assembly.

Hi, Not a novice in the assembly dept., but the Schwinn easy steer trike is a KILLER! Should I use the excuse that this is the 4th assembly I've done today? #!. Do the smooth-top screws hold the seat...

How do i raise the handlebar on a 1999 MGX bicycle?


You can only raise a quill stem os far safely. Loosen the vertical center bolt that's in line with the steerer tube a few turns and then tap down on it with a block of wood or rubber mallet to unseat it. The stem should be loose enough to turn independently of the front wheel. You can also raise it somewhat, but look carefully for the "maximum height" or equivalent markings etched into the stem body. Don't expose any more stem than up to that line. Line up your handlebars with the front wheel and securely tighten that bolt. It should be tight enough to vigorously resist independent rotation when you hold the front wheel bewteen your knees and attempt to turn the handlebars.

If it's a new-style threadless type stem, the maximum height was determined when they assembled the bike because they had to cut the steerer tube to be below the top edge of the stem. Go to a Bike Shop and have them replace the stem with one that has a higher rise or shorter reach.

When the handlebars are turned, the wheel does not turn with them. Kettrike Air Navigator tricycle


  • It sounds like the quill insert is loose. The handle bar connects to the stem, the stem connects to the quill, the quill connects to the steerer tube.
  • while sitting on the bike, tighten the quill adjustment bolt a half turn at a time until the handlebars turn instantly with the front wheel.

How can I fix slipping handle bars on kettler?


There should be a nut around the colum that comes up from the wheel and connects to the handlebars that is probably loose. If you can't get it yourself I have found that if you take it to a local bike shop they will fix these things usually for free or at a minimal charge usually less than five bucks. Take to a mom and pops type store you will get better service and like I said they will usually fix these things on the spot for free. hope this helps

Kettler Air Navigator Tricycle


My husband and I just put this trike together and had a similar problem - the front wheel always turned the pedals and we couldn't figure out how to stop this. The manual for the trike is awful and very hard to understand. After spending a LOT of time analyzing the pictures and doing all sorts of weird things to the pedals, I found a posting on a website that said they'd had the same problem, but had removed and re-attached the front wheel and the problem was suddenly fixed. Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, we noticed that in one of the manual's pictures that the air valve for the front tire was facing the other direction - we'd actually put the tire on backwards. I took the tire off, put it back on facing the other way, and suddenly it all works as it's supposed to.

The thing is, you actually don't have to "do" anything to change from free to fixed and keep the pedals stable. If my daughter pushes the pedals around, they move around, and if she keeps her feet steady on them, the wheel continues to go around while the pedals stay put. It truly is automatic, which the diagram in the manual does a terrible job of conveying.

Hope this helps someone. We like this trike, but the directions are beastly!
