first identify the problen is it front or rear derailuer.secondly bike shop mechanic hate cheap mass produced bikes because they do not sell them
so lets solve your problem,okay sometimes this can be an adjustment issue.now if its bunching on front then first read your owners manual to see which gears are compatible,sometimes it will suggest not using certain gears,secondly if yhe chain has fallen off and got jammed it may be bent and need replaced visually confirm if the chain is straight.okay if it is not the chain then the length and length adjustment can be changed using the adjustment on the rear derailuer look and you will see 3 screws located on it the two with L /H are for adjusting the gear stops l is for low gears,so it does not go too far and wedge between the gear and spokes,H is for the small gear(high)if it goes past and falls off adjust this one.lastly the one located at the very rear adjusts chain tension the loosening of this one will relax the chain and apply more chain on the gears   tightening of this one will tighten the chain,adjusted properly your chain should not bow down over adjustment will cause chain skips.now if there is too much slack in the cable that is adjusted by the adjusters on the ends of the cable where it meets the shifters,learning to adjust your bike will save you a lot of money in the long run.

SOURCE: Purchased a Schwinn 4 months

It's "Shimano". SRAM and Shimano are the main players in the bicycle component industry. Each has boutique parts and throw-away parts. Guess which end your your bike is on.

Visit their websites to look around at the offerings. Just the parts on a high end bike (no frame or wheels) can set you back $2000.

The problem needs some better definition and a trip back to the seller for evaluation. OR bite the bullet and get a better Bike Shop bike that will come with a relationship to the guys at the bike shop, who are always ready and willing to advise you.

How do I get the gears to work again on my Schwinn Mesa GSX Mountain Bike?


The shift cable is likely too loose, but there are multiple items to tighten, lubricate and adjust on just the derailleurs, let alone the rest of the bike, before it's safe and ready to ride. I would suggest you get some assistance from a more knowledgeable friend, a bike co-op or a bike shop.

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 ...

I inheirted a 1987 Schwinn Mirada. It is all tuned up and ready to go, but I have no manual and haven't the foggiest notion how to shift it without screwing it up. It has old top mounted shifters and...


It may help to have some simple advice about how to shift. You can only shift while the chain is moving. And the chain is only moving when you are pedaling. If you move the levers while the chain is not moving, it is no big deal unless you are very forceful with the shift lever. The bike will simply try to shift once you start pedaling. However, in all cases when shifting it is best to be pedaling very lightly. You want the chain to be moving, but you don't want to be pedaling hard and therefor pulling hard on the chain - that makes shifting very rough and you can hurt yourself. So, you want to shift to a lower gear as you approach an uphill, not while you are already pedaling hard trying to climb it. On the other hand, shifting to higher gears is usually pretty easy since you can always pedal lightly as you are moving fast.

One more thing. If this bike has it's original freewheel (that's the gear cluster on the back wheel) it is likely to be of the old style simple tooth design. These old freewheels are harder to shift than the new ones (basically they are more difficult to shift under pedal pressure than the new ones.) The newer (since around the mid 80's) freewheels have twisted teeth and little indentations in the face of each gear making it a whole lot easier for the chain to climb onto the next larger (lower) gear. If you have the old style freewheel you will be amazed at how much better the new ones work. If you do replace it, replace the chain too.
Good luck I hope you found this helpful Al K
