Look for the manufacturers name and model number on the gripshift and check at www.parktool.com. Look under derailleurs for repair tips which will give you an idea how they work. A twelve speed has six gears on the rear sprocket and two on the crank giving you a combination of twelve speeds. sheldonbrown.com is another good site with good articles and pictures.

If the cable is rusty or otherwise binding it won't let the derailleur fall toward the smaller sprockets when the control is moved. Likewise, it may not even let you move the control in the direction that pulls the cable (bigger rings).
If you don't know much about the process I suggest you read this:
and take the bike to a Local Bike Shop for a look-see and maybe a tune-up.

SOURCE: Hello there! My mom just
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.
hope this helps

Look at the derailleur hanger alignment first to make sure its not all bent up, then the adjustments.

The technique is online in many places. "how to shift a bicyce". If you have mechanical issues (besides not pedaling while shifting) try to define them better.
