Hey Guys/Gals, first post on the forum and glad to be here!
Quick question - I went riding this past weekend on my Schwinn High Timber and noticed that some of my gears stopped working... as in I would pedal, the chain would spin around the teeth of the gear but it wouldn't actually move the bike. I noticed that some of the discs on the back cassette had become lose from the middle of the back wheel and no longer moved with the wheel itself. So - I talked to Schwinn and they are sending me a replacement cassette for free (woohoo!).
Would it be easier to take the bike up to a shop and have them put the new cassette on or is it worthwhile buying the tools and doing it myself? (from what I understand, a lockring removal tool and chainwhip tool) Would the shop charge me a lot just to put it on?
Since I am a noob, I don't have the tools but I do believe I could figure out how to get it done if I do go out and decide to buy the tools. Please offer me your expert opinions and thank you in advance!
