General Discussion / Cleaning A Bicycle
« on: November 10, 2012, 09:25:45 am »
Hi All,

I just purchased a Schwinn bicycle from the Voyageur 2 series and it could use a good cleaning.  I presume that it is as simple as dousing it with water, drying it and lubricating the chain with 10 to 20 drops of 3 in 1 oil.

Am I correct?

Thanks in advance.

General Discussion / Tire Pressure
« on: October 22, 2012, 11:36:45 am »
Hi All,

I just purchased a Schwinn bicycle from the Voyageur 2 series and the tire pressure noted on the tires should be 44 to 73 psi.  All my riding is done on paved streets.  Considering that, could you please recommend a more exact pressure for my tires?

Thanks in advance,

Bob

Gear Talk / Gear Shifting

Hi All,

I just purchased a Schwinn bicycle from the Voyageur 2 serious and I absolutely love it.  I am 67 years old and this is the first time in my life I've owned a decent bicycle.

That said, I don't understand the gearing.  The left handlebar has a switch with three positions and the right has one with seven positions.  All my riding has been with the left switch in the second position and I control the gearing by changing the right position switch through the seven possibilities.

This is all I do because I don't understand the gearing.   Please tell me what the settings should be in order to go from the lowest to the highest through all 21 possibilities.

Thanks in advance,

Bob
