How do I get the gears to work again on my Schwinn Mesa GSX Mountain Bike?


The shift cable is likely too loose, but there are multiple items to tighten, lubricate and adjust on just the derailleurs, let alone the rest of the bike, before it's safe and ready to ride. I would suggest you get some assistance from a more knowledgeable friend, a bike co-op or a bike shop.

Renault trafic gearbox cable adjustment


After fitting the cables! You need to adjust the GATE cable as each gearbox has slightly different wear... One cable selects the gears.. The other is responsible for the smooth gear selection! Sounds like your out of line mate! Theres an adjustable thread on the GATE cable! Keep adjusting til it selects smoothly! JOB DONE SAAAAAAN!! :-)

Hi michaelcook1....
Sounds like you need to adjust your derailer on the back of the bike, it may be out of adjustment and causing the chain to slip.
