You have to look if when you act on the shifting level it get hard to move or it is free, if free, probably the cable is broken.
Also check if the cable is not too loose, try to follow the cable track and move the level and see if the cable move with that, in that way probably can find where the cable is stuck or broken/loose.

Where can I find a manual for a Falcon adventurer bike? I haven't ridden it for a few years and can't remember how to work the gears


It means its an 18 speed bike. The shifting is easy. Start with the left side, begin riding, keep pedaling, don't stop pedaling in ther middle of a shift, it will throw the chain. As you ride, twist the shift grip, up and back. Still pedaling? Now after you have tried that one, try the other side, its the rear with 6 gears. Up and back, keep pedaling. After you have tried each individually, try them together. And now you're shifting. Looking good
. KEEP Pedaling

I need an owners manual for a pacific evolution bike


Are you sure the derailer or sprocket are not bent? The next thing if not that is the cable itself is it pulling the delairer to release the gear from the gear it is in? one final is the bike just may not go into 6th gear depending on which gear you have the front sprocket in because it would pull the front sprocket to far past the crank space where the pedals are at.

I'm new to multi gear bikes..whats the reason for the 6 gear positions on the right and 3 gear positions on the left hand side


Bicycles have two sets of gears (front and back). The 6 position control slides the chain between the 6 sprockets (cogs) on the back. The 3 gears are for the front set of cogs. Between the two sets of sprockets, you get 18 (theoretical) different rates of chain movement per turn of the pedals. In fact some of the settings overlap. (However some of these should not be used. Do not use the settings that pull the chain to the furthest inside of one derailleur and the furthest outside of the other. This diagonal between the biggest and biggest sprockets (or smallest to smallest) puts extra strain on the chain.) The back derailleur is in the lowest gear when on the biggest sprocker. The front low gear is on the smallest cog. The highest gear possible is on the smallest rear cog and the largest front cog.

By planning the shifts in gears, you can maintain the same speed and cadence (rate of pedalling) on different terrains. (For going up a hill, use a lower gear than on flat terrain. However don't go to low or the bike may not balance well.) To shift through a large range of gears, you must be pedalling and then move the rear derailleur control followed by the front derailleur then the back again. (For faster shifts to a low speed, you can shift the front derailleur first but that can stress the system.)

For a guide to using the gears: http://www.southcoastbikes.co.uk/articles.asp?article=Gears .

I hope this helps.

My bike does not seem to shift gears should I be cruising as I shift or should I be pedaling


Your bike must not be the Cruiser pictured - that's a one-speed bike. So here's a general description--- For gear changes on multi-speed bikes, where the chain has to move between different size sprockets, the chain must be moving in order to shift. So, yes, you have to be pedaling, but it works best if you pedal very lightly - so that the chain is moving, but is under very light pressure. On the other hand, if you have a 3-speed bike where the gear changes take place inside the hub of the rear wheel, the wheel should be moving, but the chain should not - so you should be coasting to change gears.

Turbo R-24 Model Empire 24 Inch Men&s Bike how many if any gears does it have shows to have ◦Shifters: Shimano tourney index but what does this mean. Sears can't answer


Count the number of sprockets you have up front, then count the number you have in the rear, Multiply, 3 x 6 = 18 speeds. 3 up front, 6 in the rear, or 2 up front, 5 in the rear, 10 speed. Etc, they go as high as 21. You might only have one in the front.
To shift, you have to be peddling, get the bike going, put the chain on the middle or the biggest sprocket in the front, move the left thumb shifter to do this, do not let the chain rattle, make it a clean shift and don't let it klik or rub. Then put the chain on the biggest one in the rear , without any rubbing, chattering, slipping, etc,with the right shifter, now you are ready to take off easily, when you get going and the pedals get too easy and go faster, shift the rear to the next sprocket down, then again, then when you are coming to a stop, down shift the rear sprocket back to the biggest gear and you will be ready to take off again easily. A few tries, you will shifting like mario andretti. Hope this helps.

How to use thumb shifters on a 21 speed Schwinn Highplains bike


OK, for a beginner in the world of 18 speed bikes, put the chain on the big sprocket up front, it should be about 46 teeth, make sure it is center and doesn't make noise, if it does, adjust it just a hair either way, now, the rear, put the chain on the big sprocket in the rear, make sure the front didn't start making noise, if it did, adjust it again. You are now ready to take off, in low gear, as you start out, it is easy to pedal, soon you will be peddling air, shift into second gear in the rear only, don't touch the front. Just a little push with the thumb will make it shift, now were going faster, easy peddling, shift into 3rd, then 4th, etc, coming to a stop, down shift the back sprocket back into low gear (big sprocket) and be ready to take off again. Soon you will be shifting that thing like a Ferrari! The front sprocket, will be used for moderate terrain, wheelies, and mountain climbing, that will come later, learn how to shift the rear first. As each gear climaxes, hit the shifter, it will get smoother as you go, and keep the chain quiet, no climbing on the next sprocket or falling out of gear. Hope this helps.

I just bought my bike at wal-mart and I didnt get a manual. Iam having a hard time changing gears


I'm assuming you bought a mountain type thing with 12 -18 gears on it, It is easy enough to shift it, as long as it is it working right, They should have set the stops on both shifters front and rear for you. They might be a little off, but when in low gear rear, your chain should not go over the limit and fall into the spokes. Like wise in high gear, should not fall off the cluster in high. The front is the same, the chain should stop at the sprockets smoothly, and not crunch into gear. My bike shifts like a car, 1,2,3,etc. Your front sprockets, unless you are mountain climbing, leave it on the big sprocket, about 46 teeth, and get used to running that high gear up front, now the rear sprocket, you start off in low, biggest one, and move your shifter while you are peddling, 2nd, then 3rd, and when you come to a light or have to stop, downshift to low again in the rear and you'll be ready to take right off. There are a lot of people out there who don't know how to shift these things and they leave them in one gear and pedal air. Hope this helps.

18 speed bike 6 gear shift works fine 3 gear


If the cable is rusty or otherwise binding it won't let the derailleur fall toward the smaller sprockets when the control is moved. Likewise, it may not even let you move the control in the direction that pulls the cable (bigger rings).

If you don't know much about the process I suggest you read this:

http://coachlevi.com/cycling/complete-beginner-guide-to-bicycle-gears-shifting/

and take the bike to a Local Bike Shop for a look-see and maybe a tune-up.
