With the wheel off remove the two pins which locate the guide wheels on the deraileur. Take off the guide wheels and the guide plate. Now straighten the chain and unwind the snarled area. Locate the chain around the smallest cog wheel on the back wheel and mount the wheel to the bike. The chain will hang slack. Now mount the upper guide wheel and guide plate to the deraileur making sure that the chain feeds off the rear cog and passes around the guide wheel towards the front of the bike. Push the deraileur forwards relative to the chain and slip the lower guide wheel in between the guide plates and pushing the chain back in the guides & fasten with the pin. As you reassemble the plates and wheels on the deraileur be sure to observe carefully which way the chain is running. It is quite logical and this should prevent mistakes being made

I have the new 2 x 10 groupo and when in the smallest cog and the small ring then chain rubs on the bottom loop of the front deraileur. My hight is set to shimanos specs. I'm wondering if there is anyway...

the system was not designed to have rub.

If your chain is too long, there can be enough slack to rest on the front derailleur. Also may want to make sure you have the B-tension screw set correctly on the rear derailleur.

If you still getting rubbing, swing the bike by your local bike shop to have them take a look (thats free) and make sure you installed everything correctly. it's very difficult to diagnose properly without seeing a picture or the actual system.

hi, prob good idea with this will be to slacken off the wheel push the wheel forward and fit a chain the correct length for the set up you have, count the links in the chain you have on the bike and get one 2 links shorter, mark a link on the chain with paint or sim turn the wheel and count the link plates, ie 1 plate is 2 links, so start on the 1 next to the marked 1 turning the wheel counting the plates 2 4 6 8 10 etc and end on the marked 1 this will give you the number of links already on the bike

When peddling bike seems to try to shift gears

There may be some chain links that do not move freely. turn the pedal slowly backwards and check for siezed links, as it goes through the deraileur.

A worn chain can do this as well, unfortunately you usually have to change the chain and sprocket cluster as a pair. If you just put a new chain on a similar problem can occur.

Can i remove a 5 gear sprocket from 26" tire, and replace it with a 7 gear sprocket from a 20" tire? my roomates touring bike is currently a 15 speed, she loves the bike and does not want to replace it....

Several scenariosto consider here. First of all the compatibility with the hub. Second is the deraileur tarvel and the actual shifter. Components are normally matched in sets from factory and do not transfer over unless the entire set, shifter, deraileur and sprocket. Then there is the issue of chain wear fitting the crank and new hub together. Chains and gears seat into each other as they wear so a crank set should stay with the original hub as well, even if you were to install a new chain the wear pattern would be different.
So the short answer is unless the brands all match and are in new condition and the hubs are the same thread and diameter, you will not get good results

I need to know how to place the chain back on the gears

shift onto your smallest cog on the rear and shift to your biggest cog at the front then place part of the chain onto the small cog at the back and then do the same with the big cog at the front then simply pedal forwards and the chain should go back on by itself

Back sprocket will not adjust down to easiest gear.

Below is an online video on how to adjust your gears. Your issue could be a number of things:
- cable is seized or full of gunk- make sure that it is cleaned out and lubed before you try to adjust your deraileur.
- check the two lockout screws on the deraileur - one handles the high and other handles the low gear. Their purpose is to make sure the chain doent fall into the spokes as well as the frame when reaching the extreme ends of the shift.

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
