You have a problem with the gear cassette, the weldings or the connecting rod broke. If it's a brand new pair and you just bought it, I would go back to the shop and have them replace it with a new pair.
Good Luck and ride safely.

How do I change gears on a 10 speed bike?

move the shift lever while pedaling. The gears won't change unless you rotate the crank at the same time you actuate the shifter. If this doesn't work then the derailleurs are out of adjustment and will need to be adjusted. Check with your local bike shop for service.

Whenever I ride my 26"

The most likely cause of this problem is that the back wheel is not in straight. If you loosen the 2 nuts that hold the wheel in you'll be able to align it with the chain. When you stand behind the bike the wheel and chain should be parallell.

You should also keep the chain oiled as it helps to stop it hopping across the gears.

Just purchased a Huffy bicycle today from Academy - I have never had a bicycle with gears before - Is it normal that the gears switch when you don't switch them? This is all new to me!

The rear derailleur needs to be adjusted to stop this from happening. Put the bike in third gear and flip it over onto the seat. Spin the wheels and turn the adjuster until it starts to try and shift into 2nd, then back it off a couple of clicks. Problem solved.

Gears do not engage.\r\nis in freewheeling mode

If you remove the wheel can you spin the gear cluster forward with no resistance? Does it ratchet when spun backward? If yes and no, the hub is shot.

I need instructions on when to change gears on a 15 speed, 24'' girls bike. I bought it second hand, and have no idea which gears to use when.

biggest in the back and smallest in the front gives you the fastest accel and is used for uphill as well.. smallest back and biggest front is used for top speed....

Childs 12 inch mongoose is new, but back wheel does not spin prop

The bikes are pre-assembled by a machine that overtightens the rear axle.  I had the same problem with my daugher's 12 inch huffy princess bike and my other duaghter's 16 inch Schwinn bike.  If you loosen the nuts on the back axle it fixes the problem.  I have read that the idea thing for these bike is to have them re-assembled and re-lubricated by a bike shop, but I thought this might cost as much as I paid for the bike.
