Thank you for using Fixya. the issue you are experiencing is pretty much your free wheel. If it is new, it may have been installed the other way around or the clip in the assembly that serves as a spring for the chainwheel to lock out has been worn out.

Best if you will be able to remove the rear wheel and then check the whole rear hub assembly starting with the freewheel and the axle.

Rear sprocket slips when chain is on the smallest sprockets. when I shift to the two largest sprockets on the back wheel, it peddels or ingages fine


Sprockets are all connected and turn together as a unit. The chain could be skipping over the teeth on individual sprockets.

I suspect severe chain and sprocket wear.

How to adjust front derallier on fuji 18 speed


You will need to raise the back wheel to perform these adjustments... so that you can activate the pedals and oberve closely the functioning, as you adjust....

On the tube mounting: The derailleur needs to just clear the teeth of the front chain wheels, as it moves from one to the other. It needs to be square with the chain wheels.

The other adjustments are limiting in nature. You need the derailleur to not move the chain off of the outside of either front chain wheel. as you get closer, move the rear derailleur to extremes and then shift the front derailleur, slow and fast..... Limit is correct when you can move the derailleur so as to not ride on the chain, but not throw the chain off the wheels.

Sometimes, guys turn the front derailleur, slightly so that the last portion of the derailleur body gives the chain a little boost to the bigger gear...This is just a very small amount. Sometimes it just works better that way.

My chain snapped and I fixed that. But exactly how is the chain threaded through the Shimano rear derailleur? What is the correct path over and under the 2 jockey wheels? I cannot find a diagram that shows...


It will entail taking the chain apart again (known as "breaking" the chain).
The chain feeds UNDER the lower cog on the derailleur, BETWEEN the 2 cogs, and OVER the top one... then BEHIND the gear cluster and back OVER it. Run the other end AROUND the front chainwheels, through the front derailleur and re-connect. You may find it helpful to lay the bike on its side (sprockets up) and have someone hold rear derailleur to keep tension off the chain.e86da85.jpg
Good luck to you.

While changing rear tire, my deraileur came off. The chain seems to be snarled up. I don't know how to ge the deraileur back on correctly. Thanks for your help.


With the wheel off remove the two pins which locate the guide wheels on the deraileur. Take off the guide wheels and the guide plate. Now straighten the chain and unwind the snarled area. Locate the chain around the smallest cog wheel on the back wheel and mount the wheel to the bike. The chain will hang slack. Now mount the upper guide wheel and guide plate to the deraileur making sure that the chain feeds off the rear cog and passes around the guide wheel towards the front of the bike. Push the deraileur forwards relative to the chain and slip the lower guide wheel in between the guide plates and pushing the chain back in the guides & fasten with the pin. As you reassemble the plates and wheels on the deraileur be sure to observe carefully which way the chain is running. It is quite logical and this should prevent mistakes being made

I insralled training wheels, but now the chain does not move, why?


I'd look for unwanted contact between the hardware attaching the training wheels rear wheel nuts and the chain, wheel, gear or tire.

I suspect a screw is a tad too long.

Chain keeps fallin off!


Does the rear wheel go on such that you can adjust it to take any play out of the chain? If so, turn the bike upside down or put it on a bike stand. Loosen the back wheel and pull it so that the chain is tighter and then tighten the wheel. There are other possible causes but I suspect this since you recently removed the wheel. Also I'm not sure how often the chain falls off. If this doesn't work, ask again and let us know how often its coming off. Good luck!

Your chain is too loose, you need to get it tightned by shortning its lenght and get it greased.

When you pedal you dont go anywhere and everything is moving chain and gears


Your rear wheel freewheel assembly is probably shot and the easiest solution would be to buy a new rear wheel. Bring the old one in with you to be sure you get the right one. Most of these can't easily be rebuilt.
