OK, but keep in mind that you may not even need a different axle, as I noted above. Also, although the axle should be no problem if you do need one the cones may be more difficult, as even a dealer can't just order a "cone for a 5 speed Schwinn cruiser." Finally, if you tackle this yourself you will need some tools, although I would just have the bike shop pop off the freewheel, so you would only need a cone wrench and proper instructions, which are best done at: Park Tool Repair Help

Don't tell me what "should" be - either it is, it isn't, or do something about it.

If you think I'm being blunt take it as a compliment - if I thought you were too weak to handle the truth or a strong opinion I would not bother.

Please respect others by taking the time to post clearly so we can answer quickly. All lowercase and multiple typos makes for a hard read. Thanks!
