Drew Kries


You’re one step closer to hittin’ the pavement on your Schwinn Traveler hybrid bike. Follow the directions below to attach the front rack and fender.

Install the front rack and fender after attaching the wheel.

Getting Started

1. Loosen the nut on the back of the fork crown and remove the nut, two curved washers, two small washers and front brake assembly from the fork.

2. Remove the small bolts from the center fork holes and the small bolts from the two bottom fork holes.

TIP! Do not discard any hardware.

Attach the Front Rack

1. Insert the long brake bolt through the rack mounting tab.

2. First insert a small washer, then a curved washer onto the long brake bolt (curved side facing towards the fork crown).

3. While holding the front rack in place, insert the long brake bolt completely through the fork crown. Align the holes on the ends of the front rack braces with the center holes on each side of the front fork.

4. Using a 5 mm Allen key, fasten two fork bolts through the rack braces and into the center fork holes.

TIP! Do not tighten the hardware at this time.

Attach the Front Fender

1. Position the fender between the fork crown and front wheel with the fender bracket on the back side of the fork crown.

2. Re-insert the second curved washer onto the long brake bolt (curved side facing towards the fork crown).

3. Insert the hole on the fender bracket and second small washer onto the long brake bolt.

4. Fasten with the nut onto the end of the long brake bolt. Align the loops on the ends of the fender braces over the lower holes on each side of the fork.

5. Using a 5 mm Allen key, fasten the fork bolts through the fender braces and into the lower fork holes.

TIP! Do not tighten the hardware at this time.

Tighten and Adjust the Hardware

1. Ensure the front rack is centered and level with the top tube.

2. Ensure the brake pads are centered and align properly with the wheel rim. Note: See the Adjustment section of your owner's manual for complete information on brake adjustments.

3. Tighten the nut on the end of the long brake bolt, center fork bolts, and lower fork bolts.

IMPORTANT: See your bicycle’s owner’s manual for all warnings and assembly instructions.
