I dont think so. I bought this bike for my Mom who's 5'1" and she had no issues reaching the pedals. However, I will admit that I found this bike a bit harder to maneuver than a 2 wheeler due to the 2 wheels in the back (turns are wider than I thought) but I think its worth a try. Good luck!

The right side of the tike is the drive side of the tike the left side is the freewheeling side. Its set up the way to make easer to make a turn so when you petal you are pulled to the right to some degree

I had to have the rear axle adjusted at the bike shop. They adjusted the 2 bolts that are between the tire and the axle. It rides fine after that with no noises. This corrected the pulling to the right.

I've put 40-60 lbs back there (7-9 year old kids) and some groceries with no problem. My guess would be between 100-150 lbs depending if it's leaning against the basket grill walls.

The official weight limit is 300 pounds, but that means the crush weight (where the frame breaks) is closer to 500 pounds. High quality bikes have a crush weight of up to 800 pounds. So if you (like me) weigh a bit over 300 and want to carry 50 pounds of add-ons and groceries on this trike, don't be afraid to do it.

Sure, just be certain the axle size is correct. My guess is that this bike uses a 1/2" axle. Schwinn doesn't list the size, nor does the otherwise excellent manual (PDF download on Schwinn site).

Forget about clips and straps. I used these for 30 years until I discovered non-slip pedals (with pins or teeth). The latter are much easier to deal with, and you won't suffer the indignity and pain of falling while strapped in too tightly.

Walmart sells a quality pedal set for $19 called "Alloy Black BMX Pedal, 1/2" Axle."

If the axle size is NOT 1/2", they also sell the 9/16" size for the same price.

When removing the old pedals, note that the LEFT side pedal (if sitting on the bike) comes off in OPPOSITE NORMAL direction, i.e., you must turn it CLOCKWISE TO REMOVE.

Put lithium grease on the new pedal threads and carefully install them - if they don't go in smoothly, STOP! They may be the wrong size! And don't forget that the LEFT pedal goes on COUNTER CLOCKWISE!

Yes, easily. I looked all over the internet for a weight rating and Schwinn does not do that. However, there were many articles of people 300+ riding it with additional tools or supplies in the basket. It is a very smooth ride, but built like a work bike.

First you should save or even print out the full manual for this trike - it is excellent - here it is: http://www.schwinnbikes.com/media/uploads/blog/files/Schwinn-Meridian-Manual_Mar2011.pdf

The manual says to use a 6mm allen wrench to adjust the handlebar stem. The allen bolt is atop the stem - loosen it to loosen the stem. The stem uses a wedge to hold it in place, so you may have to tap the allen bolt down (with a hammer, using a piece of wood on the bolt to prevent damage) to get the wedge loose.

Raise the stem until you see the "minimum insertion" mark - this mark must NOT be visible once the stem is tightened. Be sure the handlebar is centered exactly when you tighten the stem.

If this doesn't get the bar high enough, there are many extended stems available for around $20. Just be SURE that the stem DIAMETER exactly matches the diameter of the original stem.
