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!

SOURCE: adjusting front derailer

Typically adjusting the front derailleur is a matter of adjusting the two adjusting screws on the derailleur. So turn the bike upside down. It should sit on its seat and handle bars. Find the two adjusting screws one will prevent the derailleur from traveling too far out preventing the chain from coming off. The other screw prevents the derailleur from traveling too far in keeping the chain from falling off that way. Now once you have found the screws slowly start turning the pedals like it was being ridden. Move the derailleur out as far as it will go if you see the chain is about to come off adjust the screw. Do same for inside screw. Now move the back derailleur all the way in and retest front derailleur, repeater with rear derailleur all the was out. Hope that helps. Oh, the back derailleur adjusts same way.

SOURCE: Adjusting seat on a Women's Schwinn Jet Star 26" bike

It sounds like the bike you bought was too big for you. Your only option here is to replace the seatpost with one that does not have this feature. You can pick up a seatpost at a bicycle shop and they should install it for you, too, if they are a good shop.

Hope this helps a little,
matt

SOURCE: bought a 700c Schwinn Avenue Hybrid Bike and have no manual

Sorry Brandonman, but that's really bad advice. You should ALWAYS be pedaling while shifting gears. The chain is designed to move sideways ONLY as it moves forward. You place undue strain on the components when you try to shift without pedaling.

How to adjust handle derailed assembly


They're called shift levers, and it's rare that they need to be taken apart, as well as unwise for inexperienced. The most likely problem is that the cable and housing that they pull on in order to shift is rusted. A bike shop or bike co-op can help.

How do you use the schwinn bicycle aluminum frame pump?


Do you have a presta or schrader valve on you bike tube? A schrader is a standard valve, presta has a little nut that has to be loosened to add air. Your pump has both heads or adaptors (I don't know which model you have). You should have instructions with your pump to explain how to use it, if not go to www.ehow.com and you can read all of the instructions, no use me repeating what you can read on your own.

I have a schwinn avenue bike purchaced at walmart last fall. i have had to replace spokes on the rear 3 different times.


Either you are riding over some really rough terrain or the air pressure in the tires is too low. Not getting them tight enough will also cause alignment problems and bend spokes. Eric

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.
