There is a POS forum exclusive to Schwinn and Mangoose
Hi, My S-30 finally started creaking enough to annoy me into searching for info on replacement parts. I found a 2006 reference to McMaster-Carr part number 57785K39 UHMW Bearing Flange for 1-1/2" Shaft Diameter and 1-3/4" OD. I bought a couple of those and they arrived yesterday. Sadly these parts are way too loose on the bearing tube to be of any use. Would you happen to have any more up to dat info on the true replacement flanges? My originals are a beige color.RoosterFXP said:I found some new old stock!
I bought several pair of them... all he had but its enough to get several bikes back on the trail.
I will put some up on ebay to try and recoup some cost... first auction #130200618407
Sorry if this sounds insulting, but it isn't meant to be. Did you press the bushings into your frame before checking the fit to the pivot tube? I say this because I bought similar bushings in another application, and they were way too loose when "free." However, pressed into their proper location, they tightened up to the correct amount for the application (a shock pivot on another bike). It doesn't seem like this would happen if you just look at the bushings, but it does.TeamCodger said:Sadly these parts are way too loose on the bearing tube to be of any use. .

I have a Schwinn Homegrown Sweetspot carbon frame (98,99?) and know what you mean about parts sourcing issues. Well, it turns out that John Castellano designed the sweetspot bikes for both Ibis and Schwinn. He has parts for your bikes! Check out the link below and contact him for parts.
I asked him awhile back about forks (I got a 100mm Tora, what a difference!) and got great answers. He even sells rear shocks speced and built specifically from Fox.
Keep the rubber down!
Yes he does, but he still hasn't gotten back to me if their OD is 42mm or 44mm. Maybe I'll give him a call today.TahoeBC said:Hey Broonsby
Thanks for the info, talked to John today and he is shipping me some bushings, I'll let post again once I see how well they work. He also has pivot tubes and derailleur hangers
John's Number is 877-PIVOTLESS
