Question about Mongoose 24" M Estes Bicycles

1 Answer

I bought my grandson a Mongoose 24" mountain bike. He does not know how to work the gears. Is there some type of instruction manual available for him to read to know how these gears are supposed to work and when he should use which gear?

How does the gears work on the mongoose xr500 moutain bike

There are search engines that will find the answer so much faster than flushing this through Fixya.

There is nothing unique to Mongoose regarding shifting.

Use your favorite search engine and look for "how to shift gears on a bike". You will find many videos.

I am looking for a manual for a mongoose tech 4 mountain bike or instructions regarding how to adjust the brakes

The brakes should have a label on them so you can find their website. Most of the good manufacturers have directions on their sites for adjusting their products. The bike I looked at had V brakes. is the site to look at. Great pictures and good explanations.

I think I can help. Place one end of the chain over the rear gear (doesn't matter which one, the biggest) and adjust the lever or twist ring on the handlebar so the derailleur lines up in a straight line with it. Pull the chain from the rear sprocket down and over the pivot wheel and back over the bottom wheel so it looks just like this S and the end comes forward. Join the chain links. Place the chain over a couple front teeth and turn the pedal carefully until the chain seats on the front sprocket.
