Need to adjust gears and tighten handlebars on Roadmaster Mt. Fury 15 speed

Posted by on

  • James Flemal Sep 15, 2009

    It's actually the front wheel that needs alignment with the handle bars. Has a small amount of play.

    Gear adjustment is shifting into the third set of gears. shifts from smallest to medium sprocket fairly well, doesn't shift to large sprocket.

Hi I recently bought a used roadmaster mt sport sx bike and the rear gear that's attached to the wheel is moves like in circles... is that supposed to happen... if not how can I fix it?

Lots of things on a bike move in circles. If you mean it moves when you pedal but does not "catch," so the bike does not move forward then that is a problem with the rear gear cluster. You need to have a mechanic look at it. If that's not what you mean you need to get help in providing a more clear explanation.

Do you have Roadmaster bike manuals

The only thing I can recommend is go to Walmart, ask them. Or look for a Roadmaster on their shelves, look for a website in the booklet hanging on thebike

Adjust handlebar height on Schwinn Varsity

I'm answering 7 years later. I have a Schwinn Varsity 2500 Bike made probably in 2015. The Schwinn Varsity Bike is not set up the same way as a traditional bike. I loosened the center compression bolt and the two side stem clamp bolts and it came loose where I can adjust it up or down but, there's nothing to tighten the slack up below. I did some research. My original post here was to add or remove a spacer. I think you can remove a spacer to lower but, I don't think the stem is long enough to add another one. I've seen they sell an extension that you can add-on to make the handle bars higher.

Depending on what kind of stem (part that goes into the frame and connects to handlebars) you have it probably was the wrong screw. Push it back in, and tighten it. Then loosen the screw on the side until it is about 1-2 revolutions away from coming all the way out. Then pull up.

My daughters mt sport sx roadmaster bike keeps changing gears and making a clicking sound. What causes this?


This problem is caused by improperly adjusted derailers/shifters, the mechanism that move the chain from one gear to the next. It is not uncommon for the derailers to be out of adjustment after sitting unused through the winter. Over time the cables that run between the shifters and the derailers stretch just a bit and the derailers no longer work as well without a little tuning up. Unfortunately, for the novice, adjusting the derailers is frustrating at best. The effort and patience it requires is nothing to take lightly. If you're game for giving it a try, there are a number of websites out there that will provide extensive guidance on the process - just "google" how to adjust bike derailers" and you will find plenty of options. My local bike shop will make adjustments like this for a small set price, around $20 or so - you may have a shop nearby that will do the same.

Hope this helps.

Ball bearings fell out of handlebar connection on 3-speed bike.

Take it to a professional bike shop. They have the knowledge and tools to set it right.

Or take a look at this:

The headset nuts were not necessary to be moved for handlebar adjustment. Now the bearing load is too tight. Correct adjustment of the headset requires a delicate balance between tightness and freedom of movement. If your bike has/had the original bearings it's a safe bet they may be due for replacement anyway.
