A shift cable, along with brake cables, can be changed out with any other cable as long as it's the correct size and trimmed to the right length. Check with your local bike mechanic for some recommendations on which wires to get, bring your Ironhorse along and a good mechanic will be able to tell you what size you need and what will work best for your local climate. Rust in a cable is a recipe for disaster!

I have an Iron Horse 2.4 mountain bike and need a chain diagram . My chain broke and I lost the manual. Thank you, Mike


Chain installation like almost anything else on that bike is a generic procedure. Google for videos or look at this site for many procedures.

18 speed bike 6 gear shift works fine 3 gear


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.

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:

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