    Call the 1-800- number found on the frame of your Scwhinn trike. They are very helpful, and the parts are reasonably priced. I replaced both rear wheels on mine for less than $40 each.

The rear axle of my 26″ Schwinn Meridian Adult Trike Serial No: 014288 suddenly sheared off at the right rear hub, causing me to crash to the concrete roadway, falling on my right hip and shattering my right femur (thigh bone), requiring a complete hip replacement with the appurtenant medical costs and rehabilitation – I consider the weakness in the rear axle (evidently also experience by others) a really serious flaw in this otherwise very useful machine. Putting aside my injury for the time being, I require a replacement rear axle and look forward to the full co-operation from those who are able to assist me with this.

    mine did the same, cost me the right scaphoid amongst others, l had a 15mm high tensile steel one made at an engineering firm, cost me $600 Aussie dollars, they changed the drive part to a thicker steel collar held in place with grubbscrews, instead of a plug weld and pin, given they had to use that part off the original 14mm mild steel shaft. (mine is extended into a tricycle mobility device for a passenger so it needed to be done.)

    I just searched I didn’t find any tire specifically for gomier trike. What I recommend is, try some other brand product which matches your trike specification ex: Maxxis Snyper Tire – 24in

I have a Schwinn 24″ adult tricycle. Would love to put an assist motor on. Can you help?

    Sorry. I cannot help with this.

    Stephanie - July 27, 2019

    Diane my recommendation for an assist motor, would be to buy an Electric conversion kit, through either Amazon or Walmart that fits your 24inch wheels. A 48 volt 500 watt front mount electric hub will be sufficient, but I would recommend going with either a 1000 watt or a 1500 watt electric hub. Additionally I would also recommend buying the lithium ion battery pack with charger included, as that will add less weight onto the trike then 4 lead acid batteries will. As the weight of the lead acid batteries tends to bend the rear axle, and will eventually cause it to break due to the stock axle not being strong enough to hold the added weight of lead acid batteries. You could go with the befang mid drive hub, but the frame will not accommodate it without having to put the motor under the bike frame which is not safe. And why I recommend a electric front drive hub. I also recommend using a conversion kit with a programmable control module.

        Rita you are most welcome for the suggestion. As I converted my Schwinn Meridian over to an etrike, and that is what I did. And I did choose a 1000watt electric motor, which works beautifully on the trike. The only thing I would add to the suggestion, is to buy a set of torque arms to add to the electric motor if they are not included in the conversion kit. As some kits do not come with torque arms, and instead use a washer with a tab which is meant to rest in the dropout to prevent the hub from spinning in the front fork dropout. Which can be kind of confusing for first timers. But the addition of a set of torque arms, will prevent the hub from spreading the dropouts allowing the hub to spin in the dropouts which will break the forks and damaging the electric hub. And will requiring the replacement of the forks, if they break, as welding them back together is difficult. But 4 lead acid batteries, to get to 48 volts for a 48 volt hub adds 50 pounds to the back of the trike, and that’s a lot of dead weight that makes peddling harder if a problem arises resulting in hub failure. And i would rather have an 8 to 12 pound 48 volt lithium ion better then 50 pounds from 4 lead acid batteries.

I am looking for the intermediate shaft for my adult Schwinn meridian tricycle

Reply
Stephanie - July 27, 2019

I have a Schwinn Meridian Trike with 26 inch wheels, and the rear axle broke on the trike about a week ago. I tracked an rear axle down, that had a part number on it. That part number was 20180925. I do not know if this is the part number used by Pacific Cycle, or the one used by the original manufacturer of the axles used to make Schwinn Meridian trikes. However, the customer service rep at the 1-800 number on the bike gave me a completely different part number, for the Schwinn Meridian trike rear axle. I do also know that the axle is a 17mm axle that uses 6003 RS bearings, and that the bearings are sold on Amazon. And the 17mm axle is larger then the 15mm-5/8th axle used by other manufactures. However, I am interested in finding some alloy rear hubs, for my Schwinn Meridian, and was wondering if you have an alloy rear hub option available? Or a hub that can be used, that uses 12 gauge spokes for the Schwinn Meridian trike?

Where can I get an an assemble manual??

    Stephanie - August 26, 2019

    Robert I think you can get the assembly manual directly from the Schwinn website. However, I am also aware that there are a few YouTube video’s on how to assemble a Schwinn Meridian Trike, and I think one of them might be from Schwinn. It is not hard to assemble, but most of the torque specks will be in newton meters or inch pounds and should be similar to how most bikes are torqued with things like the headsets, and crank assembly.
