Question about Cycling
My son got a hand-me-down Roadmaster Mt. Sport SX 24" bike with no manual. Does it require metric or standard hex drivers for replacing brake pads, etc.?

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.

What exactly are you needing instructions for? Most bikes are just static frames with a bunch of aftermarket (Shimano, for example) stuff hung on them.
Except for proprietary frames or technologies, everything on a common bike is found on just about any other brand of bike and the individual components are usually documented at the individual manufacturers' websites.
Places like http://www.parktool.com/blog/repair-help document many of the repair and adjustment procedures.
Search Engines will find tons of How-to videos for assembly and adjustment if you just type in the basic question.
Any of the major cheapo bike manufacturers will have a basic or comprehensive generic manual. No one makes manuals for individual models unless they are unique.
