The above advice is not exactly good cycling practice. The right shifter operates the cluster of gears on the REAR wheel. The main aim is keep your legs turning at a constant speed (around 70-90 turns per min). Do this by changing the right shifter. For most people cycling UNDER 30km/hr, the SMALL chainring (or middle one if three) is the gear to use. The left shifter will shift these.. When your pedal action is more than 90 rpm, shift to a larger cahinring (left shifter). Now there are some GEAR combinations to AVOID, mostly theLARGE front chainring and LARGE sproket on the back. This combination wears the chain rapidly, but more important, is the leading cause of the cahin coming off. !

Well, the basic principle is this: If you want a big change use your left shifter and if you want a small change use the right shifter. The right shifter is more for nuances and the left one will make a big difference in your riding speed and difficulty.

How do I change my right shifter?


It depends on how mechanical of a person you are. In simplest terms we'd unscrew the old one and put in the new one. Calibrate and then ride. Without model number or any other specifics we can only give you a general response.

For my bike, I'd change gears to the smallest gear first. Then I'd locate the screw holding the whole thing in place along the underside... unscrew. Then unhook the shift cable from the shifter. Then unthread that cable through the bike frame until I get to the derailleur. Remove / loosen the screw that holds it in place. Put the new shifter in place. Hook the cable back in. Change shifter to position of the current gear and thread the cable back through the bike to the derailleur. Slip cable back into place and tighten. Calibrate and ride...

The gears will not change at all. It seems like the part that you twist to change gears is seized on both sides. This is causing the bike to ride very slow.


Actually, it's causing you to have no gearing options. If you were Lance Armstrong the bike would move fast ;0) even with a flat tire.

Crimped, corroded shifter cables can prevent accurate shifting. I'm thinking you need a bike mechanic to look at it.

After it's all fixed you might want to view some resources concerning shifting, braking and general riding skills. It's all out there.

Will not run or move. have changed battery, checked all connections


No, just the shifter. Just to check you can exchange the red and blue wires under the pedal(just for a second or so, do not do this permanently) to see if you get power to the wheels, if so then yes it is Definitely only the shifter, but I am still pretty sure it is just the shifter. you can also call Peg Perego Tech support which is excellent and they can help you too 1800-728-2108 and parts can be priced and found at www.mypegperegoparts.com
