    I have a similar problem. I have a 24in. Mongoose Blackcomb mountain bike, the gears tend to either jump each other when shifting or the dial reads one number when in fact the chain will be on a different gear. It has been adjusted but I wish there was some sort of website with step-by-step instructions on how to properly adjust the gears. Help! :)

1. oil it
2. on the back of the bike there is a place where the chain rolls and you can push it forward... take the chain off then back on.
3. make sure you pedal fast to get it off. Hope this Helps

When i shift to 2nd gear and let off it shifts back on its own

Put the rear derailleur into second gear and stop the bike before it shifts back down. Look carefully at the derailleur and you will see two small screws next to each other. These are stop screws. The stop screw for high gear may be out of adjustment, or the front derailleur is out of alignment putting sideways torsion on the chain forcing the chain to drop back into first gear.

How does the gears work on the mongoose xr500 moutain bike

There are search engines that will find the answer so much faster than flushing this through Fixya.

There is nothing unique to Mongoose regarding shifting.

Use your favorite search engine and look for "how to shift gears on a bike". You will find many videos.

How do i install a chain for my mongoose

Here is a quick video that does a decent enough job of explaining how to install the chain on a bike similar to yours.

Note: you need to have the special bicycle tool that installs and removes links from your chain. If you do not have one, and this is something you don't plan on doing again, it will be less expensive to have your local bike shop fit your chain than buying the tool.

I have an otero mongoose bike how do i take the front tire off

The front wheel is removed by releasing the quick release located at the bottom of the fork. The tire can be removed by deflating the tire and then levering off the tire itself using a set of special removal tools.

How do you change gears

To change the front gear (probably 3 selections) use the left lever. To change the rear cassette, use the right one. To shift smoothly, slow your pedalling to switch, and don't change gears when you are pedalling hard, especially up hill. Gears hate that :)
