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.

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.

They will assemble it for you at your local Walmart store when it arrives. You have to sign a piece of paper releasing them from damages, etc. when they put it together. I would say it would take them a few days to put it together. I put mine together and it was kinda challenging. :-)

I asked this when I ordered the bike and was told that it depends on the store where it is received. When mine came in I called the store and asked if they assembled them and how much? The person I spoke to wasn't sure how much or how long it took, but when we went to get it 5 hours later, it was completely assembled and there was NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE!

Ask your local store folks. Our store does that for free and they had both of them assembled within two days. I asked before I ordered and was assured that the assembly is free.

You must come to the store, sign for the goods then ask that they be transferred to the builders as they are outside contractors who work in the store. They can't just take your bikes and give them to the builders without your permission. It takes an extra trip but it's well worth it!

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.

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.

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.

When assembling the trike, you can adjust the handlebars anyway you see fit. You can do so at any time even after assembly is done. So you can adjust your trike handlebars upwards right now if you own one and it makes it more comfortable for you. Good luck, and I hope this helps!

The Handelbars come close to your knees when turning, there are extentions on the handelgrips to prevent serious injury to your knees. As being a design flaw, i dont think there is tooo much to do to prevent it so the special handgrips show concern and an attempt to make it better

It pedals very easy. I guess it depends on the hill and your strength. The trikes ride a bit rough as you now have 3 wheels to transmit bumps. Estimate it like this: a bicycle ride + 33% more bumps.
