If you are refering to a regular bicycle this means the derailer is not making the chain jump from gear to gear. You probably need a new shifter cable or the shifter cable came unhooked from the derailer. I would take your bike to a bike shop to have this reconnected and then they will adjust it for you.
If you are refering to an exercise bike then here may be your solution. From what I have seen on exercise bikes there are three different kind of bikes. I am refering to how there resistance works.
First type has a strap that wraps around the wheel. There is a some kind of a nut and a bolt that holds that strap around the wheel. You simply need to tighten that nut. The strap will stretch over time and that is why you do not have the same resisteace you had when the bike was new. Afer you tighten this you will find that regular tensioner works better.
The Second type of exercise bike has what appears to be brake pads contacting the wheel. Basically your peddaling the bike with the brakes on. Pretty simple concept. Again there should be some sort of adjustment around this pad that is touching the wheel. Probably a screw or a bolt. Some even have adjusters that you can turn with your fingers.
The new and improved exercise bikes have what is called magnetic resistance. This is where your resitance is created by a magnet and some sort of power source such as batteries or your bike being plugged into a wall outlet. If you are using batteries replace them. I found that with my elyptical exerciser new batteries made a world of difference in the resistance settings. If changing the batteries doesn't help then there may be another problem. This could be the computer. Just check your user manual and I am sure you can get it replaced.

does the lever feel spongy when you try to engage it(not solid as it felt new)? usually this is caused by tightening the adjustment screw too far out.if so you brobally have a bad engagement lever on the transmission. the bad news is the lever is not avalible alone. you either have to bite the bullet and buy a transmission or find a junker that dosen't have the same problem.

You will have to check the starter motor , but have you tried to by pass the soleniod switch?, try to do so by connecting the two points at the solenoid, if the starter truns thn its the solenoid switch which is faulty ..if it doesnt still turn, thn you will have to remove the starter and overhaul it.
Hope this helps!
