Schwinn Cycling - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

A few thing, if you have spent hundreds of dollars on a bike, take it back to where you bought it from and have them replace, fix, or refund. if you can't, there are a few things. First check the pin and make sure our repair target is the cheapest part to replace if things go south. Can you get a different pin? Try using a candle, melt some wax on the pin then use a cloth the spread around the pin. Lube is easier to fix if you mess up. Next, could the issue be a bent frame? Go with a smaller pin if you can. If you have gotten this far, and you are dead set on filing, basic guidance, once the metal is filed, you can not undo it. So you have to be patient. Also it is steel, then you need to concerned with rust, filing may expose bare metal. You maybe able to use an align tool, to coax the hole into alignment Do not use a reamer since that will enlarge the hole without control.

Start with the basics. Is it the correct key? (If it needs one). Is the scooter actually turned on? (YES, I've done that!). Are you using the correct starting method? Is it fully charged? Does this bike have a battery pack you can remove to charge? If yes turn the scooter off, remove the battery pack, check there is no dirt in the battery tray and firmly refit the battery. You description suggests you might have 'bounced' the batteries. Basically the sudden stop has caused the batteries to move slightly tripping the safety cut out. There are 2 types of safety cut out. Push button and fuse. For the push button type look carefully at the battery case on the scooter, is there a small red button somewhere on it? Yes? Turn the scooter OFF and leave it alone for 10 minutes. Then with the scooter turned OFF press and hold the red button firmly and release it. Turn on the scooter, it should work correctly. For the fuse type there will a small plastic block somewhere in the wire close to the batteries. This will have either a flat blade fuse or a traditional cylinder fuse. They are usually really cheap so you could change it anyway. REMEMBER Always replace fuses with one that is EXACTLY the same 'A' rating (Amps). They are usually colour coded to make it easier.

A a general rule as long as the new battery is the same Voltage AND the same Amp rating another battery will work. The issue you will have is getting the new battery to fit the frame as your existing battery was shaped just for that bike.

That's a tough one Gina. I see a few alternatives, some jokey, some serious. Buy a real bike that fits you and cycle the parks and streets. wear a helmet, have good lights. Buy a real bike that fits and an indoor attachment that turns it into a an exercise bike. Like this
  1. Positioning Your Stationary Bike Stand. Find a spot in your home where you have enough space for your bike as well as enough space to mount the bike. ...
  2. Installing the Bike. Situate the back end of the bicycle on the stand first. ...
  3. Check Your Work.

Or you could buy a new seat that is physically lower to the seat post. Or take the bike to a fabrication shop and have them cut 5" out of the seat frame stem and re-weld it.

I don't know but as the connection is a low voltage type the orifice won't be very big and other Schwinn models seem to connect under the display console near the battery compartment.

I too bought an older Air-dyne that is far out of warranty, and I'd been having trouble with the ergonometer showing numbers all over the place, rather than a steady reading. Please note that doing any of the following adjustments yourself will void your Schwinn warranty if it still applies. The fan was way off center, so I adjusted it straight while I had the covers off to clean, oil and adjust the chains. I also thought having the numbers at least showing on the ergonometer was a good indication and started looking at the magnet and sensor on the right side of the wheel. I had noticed that the sensor mounting bracket was loose, so we'll start there with the repair steps:
  1. Make sure the sensor bracket isn't wobbling around. If it is loose, tighten up the INNER nut next to the bracket to hold it steady.
  2. Very slowly rotate the wheel by hand so that the magnet passes by the sensor to ensure that they won't hit during use. DO NOT use the pedals or the arms to test as the wheel will rotate fast enough to break the parts if they do contact each other. Watch your fingers!
  3. If there is contact, gently and gradually bend the sensor bracket away from the wheel far enough to clear the magnet. Test the clearance after each adjustment. Don't leave the sensor too close in case you have wobble (you shouldn't), but don't move further than 1/4" to 5/32" away either.
  4. After the sensor clears the magnet, get on the unit and test the ergometer readings. I used the "Level" readings for all of my tests rather than RPMs. RPMs will vary more even when they are correct, which might make figuring out if the gap is right more difficult. I suppose they could be used if you are a perfectionist but I don't recommend it.
  5. If the readings are now stable and steady, you are in luck. If not, go on to the next step.
  6. I stumbled across a Schwinn reference to the gap (VERY hard to find) on the newer evolution model being 2 mm to 4 mm (5/64" to 5/32"). I assumed that wouldn't change much over the years and my results bore that out.
  7. Follow the next steps very carefully - you need to gently bend the sensor in or out to about a 3 mm gap. Moving the fan wheel by hand only (and still watching your fingers!) rotate the magnet close to the sensor. Use a 3 mm (7/64" is just slightly smaller) drill for a gauge.
  8. Carefully slip the solid end of the drill between the magnet and the sensor while SLOWLY turning the wheel. If it is tight, don't force it as you may break something. Instead, gently and gradually bend the bracket out until the drill just slips between the magnet and the sensor. Mine is set so that the drill was actually just supported between the two.
  9. Test the readings again as in Step 4.
  10. The sensor should now be set about right and the ergonometer work well. Mine is now very stable. If not, you could try very slight adjustments in or out on your particular machine. The 7/64" drill is slightly smaller than the 3 mm, so you might try bending "out" first. You can also try using other drill bits between 2 mm (5/64") and 4 mm (5/32") as gauges.
  11. One more note: While adjusting mine, it appeared that the computer chip must have some means of steadying itself based on what it is receiving from the sensor. Even before I got mine dialed in, the readings appeared to converge over several minutes toward a steadier (albeit not steady enough) number. Don't be surprised if you see this too but also don't accept it as being as good as you can get. Good luck!

Look for the serial number on the lower head tube (right above the wheel on the front of the bike) for Schwinns produced between 1970 and 1979. Those produced after these dates will usually have a serial number stamped on the bottom bracket shell (the rear axle hanger holding the wheel in place).
