Do you think it’s time to get outside and enjoy some exercise, take in some sites, enjoy the great outdoors? Are you also thinking that the days of riding a bike are gone? Maybe you have stability issues that make riding a two-wheel bike just something you don’t want to risk. Have you thought about an adult tricycle? One that gives you the stability of three wheels and is large enough for an adult. The Schwinn Meridian 3 wheel cruiser bike for adults is a great alternative to the traditional two-wheeled bike.

All – in – All
Schwinn is a company that has been around since 1895. The biggest drawback to this bike is the difficulty in assembling it. However, Schwinn does have a video that shows the steps needed to assemble. If you are not a handy type of person, who is good at assembling products, I would suggest, if feasible, paying the extra money to have a bike shop assemble it for you and bypassing the frustration of doing it yourself.
The pros of the Schwinn Meridian tricycle for adults far outweigh its cons. With a step through aluminum frame, adjustable seat, and handlebars, it allows for personalizing a fit for your own body. The handlebars allow for a relaxed upright riding position putting less stress on your back than other bikes. The low step-through makes it relatively easy to get on and off.

I have broken spokes on rear wheels and in need of axel adapter so wheel can be placed in trueing stand to replace spokes. Do you have this item for sale?
I’m sorry I don’t. Have you tried going directly to Schwinn’s website? You might be able to find the parts you need there. I do want to thank you for stopping by.
Poor quality, always damaged during shipping, fenders rubbing all the time, and rear axle constantly makes loud noises. Not the Schwinn that used to be.
Thank you for stopping by and for your comment. I’ve heard there has been an issue with damage during shipment. Did you contact customer service by any chance? Thank you again.
