SOURCE: GEARS 4 AND 5 JUST SPIN

You have a problem with the gear cassette, the weldings or the connecting rod broke. If it's a brand new pair and you just bought it, I would go back to the shop and have them replace it with a new pair.
Good Luck and ride safely.

SOURCE: operator manual for huffy crosswind bike grip shift

Look for the manufacturers name and model number on the gripshift and check at www.parktool.com. Look under derailleurs for repair tips which will give you an idea how they work. A twelve speed has six gears on the rear sprocket and two on the crank giving you a combination of twelve speeds. sheldonbrown.com is another good site with good articles and pictures.

Google "bicycle shifting technique", for example:
http://coachlevi.com/cycling/complete-beginner-guide-to-bicycle-gears-shifting/
You should NEVER run cross-chained (big-big or small-small). The drive train performs best when the chainline is as close to straight as possible.
Excess sideways stress on the chain will wear it out prematurely and decrease its normal efficiency.
To demonstrate this for yourself, put the bike in the same combination of gears you're having a problem with. Get behind the bike and look straight along the top of the chain. As you can see the line of the chain is a mild zig-zag where it is parallel to the bike at each gear but needs to angle across the drivetrain in between. On some bikes the chain might even come in contact with the next larger chainring when used this way.
The big-big combo uses up all available chain length and the rear derailleur will be pulled toward the front of the bike, sometimes so far that it is in danger of being snapped off.
THERE IS NO UPSIDE TO CROSS-CHAINING.
As you can see, the rear derailleur is probably not long enough to **** up all the slack this gear combination creates. There are other combinations that would yield the equivalent gear ratio without either stressing the drivetrain or dropping the chain.
The basics of shifting are these:
1) The big ring and right side of the cassette in back are for speed.
2) The small ring and the left side of the cassette are for high torque, lower speed
Ancient bike wisdom for beginners: If your legs ache, shift down. If your lungs ache, shift up.

Got my brand new huffy a few weeks ago. everytime I shift gears, the chain comes off. we try to adjust the Derailleur, but the front one don't go all the way to the large sprocket. what do


If you purchased from a reputable bike dealer take it back. I have never heard of a dealer who does not offer a free checkup when the bike is a few weeks old because cables do stretch.

Selecting 3rd gear


Do you mean you can\'t find 3rd gear or it won\'t shift into 3rd gear? If you can\'t find 3rd gear, shift all the way down to neutral, then shift up 2 clicks. On my Suzuki Boulevard S-50 (VS-800) the shift order is 1st gear down, then up for neutral, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th. Your crotch rocket probably also has a 6th. If the problem is that it won\'t shift into 3rd, then you had best take it to the shop as it is not readily repairable without specialized tools and knowledge.

Bike has trouble shifting gears, chain won't move


Chains are intended to move in multiple dimensions while driving the bike or shifting among the gears. YOUR calibrated eyeball can see it while we can't. The Web has lots of advice and resources to well-crafted queries like "front derailleur won't shift" or "rear derailluer won't shift".

"how to (whatever)...." works for many things, too.

Great resource ...

Using a Huffy Verona Comfort Series bike - how do you shift?


The same way they all shift (considering the different physical designs of the shifters). Each lever has a control for INcreasing required effort or DEcreasing it. They work opposite each other.

Get on a search engine and look for "how do you shift gears on a bike" for many videos.

Huffy has manuals, too.

I'm new to multi gear bikes..whats the reason for the 6 gear positions on the right and 3 gear positions on the left hand side


Bicycles have two sets of gears (front and back). The 6 position control slides the chain between the 6 sprockets (cogs) on the back. The 3 gears are for the front set of cogs. Between the two sets of sprockets, you get 18 (theoretical) different rates of chain movement per turn of the pedals. In fact some of the settings overlap. (However some of these should not be used. Do not use the settings that pull the chain to the furthest inside of one derailleur and the furthest outside of the other. This diagonal between the biggest and biggest sprockets (or smallest to smallest) puts extra strain on the chain.) The back derailleur is in the lowest gear when on the biggest sprocker. The front low gear is on the smallest cog. The highest gear possible is on the smallest rear cog and the largest front cog.

By planning the shifts in gears, you can maintain the same speed and cadence (rate of pedalling) on different terrains. (For going up a hill, use a lower gear than on flat terrain. However don't go to low or the bike may not balance well.) To shift through a large range of gears, you must be pedalling and then move the rear derailleur control followed by the front derailleur then the back again. (For faster shifts to a low speed, you can shift the front derailleur first but that can stress the system.)

For a guide to using the gears: http://www.southcoastbikes.co.uk/articles.asp?article=Gears .

I hope this helps.
