    i was given a ladies Shefield Free Spirit bike. Now to bad of shape, but the tires are pretty much non existent. Would anyone know what size? They seem to very narrow. I know this is a horribly newbie question, so i apologize in advance. :oops:

    Most likely 26 x 1 /38"

    Have you got a photo of the bike? Is it a three speed?

    Im assuming a 3 speed would have some sort of shifter and this one does not.

    Coaster brake? It's still most likely 26 x 1 3/8" - take the wheel to a bike shop and they should be able to make sure about it.

    Thanks again. I really enjoyed riding this bike around. I didn't think I would like the thin tires but I do.
