Forget new guide wheels. A new rear derailer is the real fix. You will need to order a new one by the number of gears on the rear gear cluster. How the derailer is mounted, Which way it moves when by the spring direction etc... By the way, get a higher quality one than the one you have got. If you go megawheel on the lower guide wheel; which I recommend, you might need a couple more segments in your chain. Yes, you need a new chain. If you wore out a part on you derailer, your chain is getting old. I recently bought a new rear derailure for my wife's bike for 29 bucks at a much better quality than the old one. It does not have problems of getting between gears, clicking etc... like the old one did new.

You need to replace the main pivot bolt, something (most likely a tab) is broken. This one is best taken to your local bike shop for inspection. There may be something your missing like a crack in the body or another broken part. Link to Manual.

You can also contact the SRAM customer service for support, but they will refer you to a shop to take care of the problem and order any parts on this type of problem.

Ask a local Bike Shop. Derailleurs for that bike are cheap. Evaluating the bike for a bent derailleur hanger and fixing it is a job for the pros. Word to the wise. Never pedal backward or roll the bicycle backward if it is the rear derailleur is not precisely aligned with a gear. It WILL rip bend or the derailleur right off.

If it's "broken" or even bent it will have to be replaced. Your frame or derailleiur hanger may also have taken a fatal hit.

You should consult a Bike Shop.

If you still want to DIY you'll need to obtain some specialized tools and skills.

Mongoose 21speed spear derailer is bent. bought at yard sale 60.00 dont want to put much money into. what is the best way to fix this. how much? Want to use as spare bike. it is rideable but how long....


A new Rear Derailleur may cost more than you paid for the bike. But is IT bent or is it the derailleur hanger?

http://www.parktool.com/blog/repair-help/rear-derailleur-hanger-alignment

Search the web for "fix bent derailleur"

Steel frames can be re-formed but not most other materials.

Someone in your club should know how to deal with it and maybe even have an old derailleur hanging around.

Plate That Derailleur is attached to is bent. How do I unbend it. Where do I find wrenches/srcrewdrivers if I need to remove derailleur from plate.


If you mean the frame member/dropout to which the derailleur is attached, CAUTION!!!!

A real Bicycle Shop will have the tools necessary to straighten and align it.

Read this:

Or you could just wing it and use this procedure...

As far as where to get tools??? Special tools can be found at a Bicycle Shop.

I need a derailleur hanger for a Schwinn S-25 dual suspension mountain bike. I don't have the hanger. Is there a part or model number for the hanger so that I can order a new one?


Most bike shops can match up the broken pieces. If that doesn't help check this link to see if you see one that looks like yours.

In case you are not aware Schwinn folded in 1999, The name is now being used by Pacific Cycles. If all else fails you might be able to order one from them. Good luck.

The chain is rubbing on the rear tyre when its free wheeling. what do I do?


You may have too large a tire on the back for the bike. However, if the derailleur hanger is bent, this could also cause the problem. Flip your bike over onto the bars and seat and make sure the derailleur alignment is good (vertically and longitudinally straight). If the derailleur hanger is straight, then you will have to use a narrower tire in the back.
