Loosen the screw holding the cable to derailer, then extend or shorten the cable distance as needed.

I need to n know how to adjust the front derailer so it will shift from the middle gear to the high gear. It seems to tpuch the chain but won't move over enough to engage the chain


Assuming the front mech hasn't been moved around or up or down the frame tube, you need to adjust one or both of the following:

1. The "barrel adjuster" on the shifter to increase cable tension
2. The "H" limit screw on the mech to allow the cage to move further out at maximum cable tension.

For detailed instructions google "Park Tool Front Derailleur Adjustments" and click the first hit.

My huffy triton 26 18 speed bike will not select any of the 3 main gears the derailer does not move when you try to select gears. all back gearing works fine. the gearing system on the bike is a shimano...


The problem has nothing to do with the derailleur itself. Either your shift cable has stretched and is now too loose (in which case the shifter will move but have no effect on derailleur movement), the cable/housing is rusted (in which case the lever will usually not move at all), or the lever is broken or gummed up (in which case it will move, but you will get no clicks). Each problem has a separate solution. Either take to a bike co-op for help in fixing it, to a bike shop to have them estimate and repair it, or go to a site like Park Tool's Repair Help and learn how to fix it. It's very difficult to instruct you with just words, and good options are already available.

I'm trying to adjust the shimano gearing on my trek bike and am having a little trouble


Front or rear? What is it doing?
Flip the bike over onto the handlebars and saddle and let us fix it.
Here is how to adjust the rear (first):
-Set your front gear to its middle position.
-Shift the rear into the highest gear.
-Disconnect the derailleur cable.
-Screw the barrel adjuster on the shifter (or down tube if it is a road bike) to fully turned in clockwise.
Screw the barrel adjuster on the rear derailleur to its halfway point.
-On the back of the rear derailleur you will see two screws. One will be marked "H" and the other "L". These mean high and low. Adjust high to get your jockey wheel on your derailleur perfectly centered over the smallest cog on the cassette. Manually shift by pushing the derailleur (while cranking the pedals) to the largest cog (1st gear) and set this stop on the derailleur "L" where the jockey wheel is over the cog, but past it where it would be touching the outside of the cog if they were side-by-side.
-Pull the derailleur cable taut and re-tighten it.
Shift the rear to the middle gear and adjust the derailleur using the barrel adjuster to center the jockey wheel directly over the cog it should be.
-Now shift up and down the cassette, cranking as you go and in every gear, back-pedal to make sure there is no problem with the gears hopping. If they do, adjust as necessary with the barrel adjuster.
Here are some tips for the front:
-Shift into low gear on the front and rear derailleurs. Make sure the chain is not rubbing on the front derailleur. If it is, adjust the screw marked "L" until the chain just clears the derailleur but does not touch it.
-Pull the derailleur cable taut and re-tighten it.
-Now shift the front into the middle gear and while it is still in the low gear in the back, crank to make sure the chain is not rubbing on the front derailleur. If it does, adjust the tension of the cable with its barrel adjuster.
-Shift the front into high gear and shift the rear to the highest gear, cranking as you shift. If the chain is not rubbing, you are all set.

There should be one or two limiting screws for the front derailleur that you can use to adjust how far out/in the derailleur moves to shift the chain over. You can ask a friend to lift the back end of the bike off the ground while you do the adjusting of these screws and then try shifting the gear while moving the peddles with your other hand.
