Hi Frustrated,

Thank you for your question and I'm sorry you are having difficulties. I would suggest following the adjustment instruction included in the owner's manual. You may download a copy of the manual at http://media.schwinnbikes.com/media/s/c/schwinn_meridian_manual.pdf. If you are still having issues with the brakes, please call Schwinn Customer Service at 1-800-626-2811 option 1. Customer service is available Monday thru Friday 8AM to 5PM CST.

Your question is not specific. What doesn't work? If you put it together and the peddles don't move the chain, you didn't assemble the frame properly It takes two people to set the frame. Re-read the directions, you have to pull on the frame, front and rear once you have the chain in place to secure the proper tension.
Good Luck

It took a few minutes for us to understand how the hand brakes work. It did take 2 adults to make the necessary cable adjustments. It also required some tweeking with 2 adults.

I ended up having the local bike shop just remove the back fenders altogether. We simply couldn't get them to stop rubbing no matter how much we messed with them. Much happier with the bike now.

you might try putting them on backwards. I'm not joking with you. That's the only way we got our front fender to fit. Worked an hour trying to comply with instructions, but it just didn't go on that way. Put on backwards and works fine. Best of luck!

I had same problem. Took bike back to store & was told wheels needed to be aligned which they did. When I picked it up, was told they fixed it as best they could. Rode 2 times and fender was rubbing tires again. Called a bike shop and they said they couldn't fix it; that I needed to get money back or have Walmart fix. Walmart gave me my money back.

Ship it to the store for free and once it arrives, ask for assembly. It is free but it takes a day or two. We have ordered three of the trikes, now.

answer 2
They will assemble it free of charge at the store, but it is large to transport. We have a Chevy Traverse and it would not have fit into our vehicle if it was assembled. You would probably need a truck. We would have needed to leave it for 24 hours to have it assembled after we handled the paperwork.

Buy through Wal Mart and have it shipped to your local Wal Mart. You might first talk to the bike assembler at your local Wal Mart ahead of time just to confirm that they will assemble it. My local Wal Mart assembled by wife's Women's Solitaire and my Men's Solitaire without charge... and they did a good job.

Not that I am aware of. You may be able to find a classic modle on the internet but expect to pay over a $1000.00 for it.

Now their are other types of levers that can be placed on the bike to make the breaking easer. You would need to look under special levers for bike hand breaks.

I'm sorry, but no. The hand brakes are the only ones available. But they do have a very nice feature-push buttons that stop the trike from rolling, making it easy to get on and off. To me, that made them worth having.

It rides equally well on smooth streets or smooth sidewalks. If you hit really bad cracks it can be bumpy on either.

Some locations require you to ride in the street, got to know the laws where you are.

I ride on both depending on traffic. Heavier traffic will find me on the side walk. One thing to keep in mind when chosing a riding surface is the width with the two rear wheels and if the sidewalk isn't flat, the ride won't be a comfortable one.
