Shift to your top gear before removing the wheel and as you take the wheel out, pull back your derailleur to make it clear the cassette more easily.

Hope,

I have (2003-2005 ?) year model Schwinn Sierra GSX 26" mountain bike. I need a diagram that shows how to route the chain. I had to remove the back tire. Now I can't get the chain to line-up on...


Basically, shift the rear derailleur to the highest (smallest) gear before removing/installing the wheel.

Google "how to replace rear wheel on a bike" for video advice.

The bike keeps shifting gears on its own what is wrong


This happens when the back wheel is not lined up properly with the bicycle frame. Because the gears are not in a straight line with the chain it can slip. If it slips to the right, away from the wheel, then loosen the wheel and move the end of the wheel next the pedals slightly to the right as you stand behind the bike. If it slips to the left, in towards the wheel, then move the end of the wheel nearest to the pedals to the left. Once the wheel and the chain are in line it should stop changing on it's own.

I had to take off the rear weel of my falcon apache mountain bike to get it in my car o travel from my grandparens home to mine but i cant get the back weel gear arm back on. how do i do this??


By the "gear arm" I assume you mean that part of the rear derailer that the chain zig-zags through. This arm moves in two ways. It moves in and out (toward the wheel and away) as you move the shift lever - which is how it changes gears, by moving the chain onto different sprockets (gears). It also moves forward and back (toward the front and back of the bike) under spring pressure. This forward and back motion is necessary to take up the slack in the chain when you are using the smaller sprockets (the smaller the sprocket, the "higher" the gear). When the wheel has been removed, this arm moves forward (under spring pressure) as far as it can to take up all of the slack in the chain. All you have to do is grasp this lever and pull it toward the back of the bike, allowing the lever and the chain to pass behind the sprockets (gears) as you pull the wheel back into it's position. You can safely pull this arm forward and back at any time without doing any damage. One more tip-- I find it a little easier if you first put the shift lever in a "middle" gear position. Then when you pull the wheel into place, you should aim to put the chain on a middle sprocket. You don't have to hit the exact correct sprocket as you can simply lift the rear wheel and turn the pedals forward (after installing the wheel) and the chain will move to the correct sprocket corresponding to the setting on the shift lever.

You may have a locked up wheel bearing or you may have an object stuck in the chain. Can you spin rear wheel by hand? If not, most like bearings, if so, then you may have bent gear tooth or something stuck in chain. Check derailer to make sure it is not bent

CHAIN REPLACEMENT


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.

Twisted Chain


Take the back wheel off and straighten the chain. Be careful to keep it straight while putting it back on. Try and oil the chain first.

Bicycle Chain Problem


Your chain problem is probably because your chain is not tightened and maintained.
You should clean your chain after a ride, and oil it (very little oil).
Good luck
