You might have to consider changing your bottom bracket for one with a longer shaft. Examine your chain line and do some research here:http://www.parktool.com/ and also here:http://sheldonbrown.com/gearing/index.html

SOURCE: how to use thumb shifters on a 21 speed Schwinn Highplains bike

OK, for a beginner in the world of 18 speed bikes, put the chain on the big sprocket up front, it should be about 46 teeth, make sure it is center and doesn't make noise, if it does, adjust it just a hair either way, now, the rear, put the chain on the big sprocket in the rear, make sure the front didn't start making noise, if it did, adjust it again. You are now ready to take off, in low gear, as you start out, it is easy to pedal, soon you will be peddling air, shift into second gear in the rear only, don't touch the front. Just a little push with the thumb will make it shift, now were going faster, easy peddling, shift into 3rd, then 4th, etc, coming to a stop, down shift the back sprocket back into low gear (big sprocket) and be ready to take off again. Soon you will be shifting that thing like a Ferrari! The front sprocket, will be used for moderate terrain, wheelies, and mountain climbing, that will come later, learn how to shift the rear first. As each gear climaxes, hit the shifter, it will get smoother as you go, and keep the chain quiet, no climbing on the next sprocket or falling out of gear. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: cannot adjust the tension on

I have the same problem with a schwinn 202 that someone gave to me because the resistance adjustment no longer worked. They were advised by Schwinn that the motor needed replacement, but after testing mine, the problem seems to be a lack of power from the computer to the motor. Schwinn tech support will get a call from me tomorrow.

I have a Schwinn Avenue hybrid bike I am not sure how to adjust the derailer in the front


The good news is that derailleurs are simple machines. The bad news is there are hundreds of different kinds. So they all tend to be unique.
All it does is physically push the chain so the chain hops gears. The shifter tightens or loosens the wire connected to the derailleur to cause the movement.

Follow the wire running from whatever type of shifter you have to the derailleurs. You should see a place where you can loosen the crimp from the derailleur to the wire. Usually its a simple crew or bolt.

Then its a matter of resetting the tension to match the function of your shifter to the movement of the derailleur. Switch gears with everything attached first with the bike upside down or on a stand so you can see how the two parts interact.

Good luck!

My 1998 softail custom won't shift above third gear, and i have a really hard time getting it to shift back down


It could be your shifter pawl in the transmission. But, check for any binding in the long linkage between the shifter and transmission. Disconnect the long connector link at the shifter in the front and check for free movement of the connector and the shifter itself. If that moves freely, then I'd suspect the shifter pawl. You'll see the short lever that connects to the shifter pawl shaft. Make sure that it's tight and not loose on the shaft. If it's loose, the splines are probably worn in the lever and on the shaft as well. Move the lever like it would move to shift to a gear. You should feel spring tension against the movement and it should return to "center" when you let go. If not, the shifter pawl return spring is broken. Usually when this happens, all you have is first and second gear.

Good Luck

I have a Schwinn Avenue hybrid bike that has a clunking sound in the crank area. Is this normal? I'm wondering if there is some maintenance that I need to do on this bike. Bike was purchased new in May and...


No, not natural. If it only does it when the front derailleur is in the big chain ring, then check to see if the crank is hitting the front derailleur. If that is not it, then the crank arms might need tightening. If not that, then the problem might be in the bottom bracket.

Broken shimano 105 flight deck shifter


You may have broken your derailleur cable. Your cable securing bolt on your front derailleur might have worked loose just enough for the cable to get some slack in it so that your derailleur isn't moving. Try completely loosening the cable bolt at your front derailleur. Pull on the cable and click the control to downshift to the inside crank gear . That should remove all the slack from the cable. Worse case scenario is when you pull on the cable it will completely pull out and it has broken at the shifter. You will have to replace it with a new one. If it isn't broken and you can still shift with the cable make sure your limit screw is properly adjusted for the inside crank ring and then pull all the slack out of the cable with the shifter shifted to that gear. Tighten the bolt that holds the cable in place and try the shifter again. It should now shift normally. If it doesn't you will have to take the bike in to have the shifter repaired. These shifters are not easy to repair unless you have the tools, parts and experience. Hope this helps.

I HAVE A SCHWINN SIERRA MTN AND DO NOT KNOW HOW TO USE THE TWO SHIFTERS


Hey bud, the shifter on your right bar next to you thumb controls the gears on the rear wheel, you probably have 7 or 8 of them. The biggest sprocket in the rear is the easiest to pedal and the small sprocket in the front is the easiest. The left hand controls the front gears (the sprockets next to your feet) If you have double levers on each side just press one lever at a time while riding and take note of the difference it makes. Start w/the right shifter and don't practice in traffic...Good Luck! and Be careful ok!!!!

Gears will not shift to first gear


It sounds like the limit screws on the derailleur are out of adjustment.  If the derailleur cant pobbible move any farther towards the 3rd gear and the cable has slack in it then we know for a fact that the limit screws are to blame.  
If you can move the derailleur with your hand past the 3rd gear then we know the cable needs to be adjusted.  I would recommend taking it to a bike shop as those index shifters do take a bit of work to adjust correctly.
