STP82381

Yesterday we happily finished overhauling/repairing the 2-speed hub on this swoopy Schwinn Speedster.  It took opening the hub three times, but on the last time I (Cody) replaced the index spring with one taken from an identical parts hub.  That did the trick, since a teeny tiny tab on the spring had broken off.  Unfortunately, we didn’t snap any photos during the process, but I swear, this bike looks happier now.  Maybe I’m happier now that it works.  Maybe both?

(A kickback hub shifts when the rider partially backpedals.  Fully backpedalling engages the coaster brake.  Smooth!)
