My 7 speed bicycle gears are not working correctly. 3rd gear is now tougher to pedal than 4th. Something is making a clickling noise and it seems that the gears are slipping. I am thinking that something was shaken loose while transporting on a bike rack for 14 hrs. Any suggestion on fixing it other than taking it to a bike dealer?

I cant remove my bike pedals

Frozenbike pedals are not a problem if you follow a few simple steps. To begin with,the Right Pedal is standard, and the Left Pedal is Reverse Thread. If you areturning the wrong way, they will never come off. The trick is to use thecorrect wrench, skinny enough to slide in place without slop, and try toposition the wrench next to the Crank Arm in such a way that you can squeezethe Pedal Arm and Wrench together as if giving a very firm hand shake. Justsqueeze hard, and 90% of the time it will break free. If it doesn't, then sprayWD-40 or some other penetrating lubricant on both sides of the threads takingcare not to contaminate the grease inside the pedal bearings. You might have togive it a good soak, and bang the metal crank arm several times to make thelubricate work its way into the thread, sometimes leaving it for 24-hours canmake easy removal the next day. Remember, the Right Pedal is Right, and theLeft Pedal is Reverse, meaning, the Right Pedal tightens normally in theclockwise direction, and loosens in the counter-clockwise direction. The Rightpedal is from the Bike Riders perspective, when sitting on the bike, the Rightpedal is on the Right Side. An extension pipe can be slipped over the wrenchextending its length 2 or 3 feet, and will bust free just about anything frozentogether, however such a method risks damage, and you might end up needing toreplace the Crank Arm.

The rear derailleur shifter doesn't work

I put "rear derailleur shifter doesn't work" into a search engine and found lots of advice, some with video. Try it.

I need to see how to put a Schwinn 21 speed left hand shifter back together.

Schwinn doesn't make the shifter. Maybe Shimano? Determine the model and look it up at or the applicable manufacturer's website.

Schwinn Sidwinder gears need adjusting. The one with 3 gears doesn't stay where I try to set it.

Keeping a derailleur in a given gear is the shifter's job. If the shift lever/mechanism doesn't click and stay where you place it, something is wrong internally. It will need to be replaced if, for example, a SRAM MRX grip slid away and let the guts fall out.

Whatever your particular dilemma, look for a friendly local bicycle shop to see what they can do for you. I replaced the entire MRX shifter set for a friend using an upgraded and better designed Shimano setup for under $25 and my own labor. But then, I'm an old hand at working on bikes.

My son has a 26"

The disc brakes may seem like a new a completely different technology, but really they adjust basically the same as rim brakes. Both of your problems sound like the cables have too much slack in them. There is a mounting bolt for the cables at the brake, loosen that, pull the cable taught, tighten the bolt and squeeze the levers again. If that is better and the brakes don't drag, there you go.

If it still doesn't fix the brakes, then it is time to consider taking the bike into a bike shop and letting the mechanic have a look.

Shifting problems/Tiagra STI Flightdeck

It sounds like the limit screws on your derailleur body are out of adjustment. They are usually small phillips head screws on the body of the front and rear derailleur that limit the travel of the derailleur body on the rear so that the chain cannot get shifted into the spokes or off the smallest cog into the frame. On the front they prevent the chain from shifting off the inside or outside cogs. There are good articles under front and rear derailleur adjustments at this site: I hope this helps.
