Schwinn S-25 rear wheel Sprockets
#1
well i Just bought my Schwinn about 3 weeks ago to bike to work and then last week as i was biking home i tried to shift gears and the bike seemed to have trouble catching. It would catch the release . well i inspected the rear wheel saturday and noticed some of the sprockets were able to spin freely is there a way to repair that or am i gonna need to replace the rear wheel?

from the picture - not the right angle to tell for sure - it looks like the freewheel is coming apart; I have never seen that before......

probably just replacing the freewheel will take care of it.

Here is one that will probably fit: http://www.amazon.com/Freewheel-Speed-Sun-Race-14-28G/dp/B001AYKN0M/

you'll also need a FR-1C (Shimano, splined) type freewheel tool like this:

then I'd go with this one:

I put this one on a hybrid with a 28-38-48 crank set. Works great. I have had better luck with Sunrace freewheels than Shimano. On my commuter I have a 13-25 Sunrace from an eBay vendor.

Well, if the number of sprockets and the shifters don't match expect some bad shifting... where did you get the bike from?

Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!
