There's a trick to putting a chain back on a bike. First fit it onto the back wheel. Then hold it on the top of the front cog wheel (at the pedals) Get someone to lift the back of the bike so the wheel is off the ground. While the wheel is off the ground and you're holding the chain on the top of the front cog wheel turn the pedals forward, with your other hand, as when you're cycling and as it turns the chain will go on.

If you don't have someone to hold the back wheel up off the ground you could hold the chain on the bottom of the front cog wheel and turn the pedal backwards. The chain will still go on.

I took the chain off to repair and now I can not figure on to put back on. Around the two small gears. please help


Hi Jeremiah:
Try this:
- Hang the chain over the axle sprocket
- Pull the two small gears towards the front of the bike
- put the chain to the front of the highest gear, and
- around the rear of the lower gear
- then it goes to the pedal end.
Hope this helps.

When trying to pedal the bike, the sprocket does not engage, rather the pedals just go around without resistance, or engaging the chain. Everything else seems okay. It has been hanging upside down in my...


You, as the only one of us who can see the bike, need to focus on what is or is not happening to define the problem better. Chains engage gears. If not, maybe the chain fell off. Try web searching "chain fell off" or "chain fell off autobike classic" or any common simple symptom to get a feel for the various reasons it happens.

Chain placement on Next 21 gear mountain Bike


You haven't actually asked a question, so I am guessing that you want to know how to replace a bicycle chain on a 21 speed bike. To remove the chain you need to use a chain tool that presses one of the pins out of the one of the chain links (any link, there is no master link). To put the new chain on you use the chain tool to press the pin in. This is just a little tricky with a chain tool, but it's just about impossible without it. They sell these tools at bike shops and maybe even at Wal-mart. Take a look at this link to see a what I'm talking about. http://www.parktool.com/blog/repair-help/chain-installation-derailleur-bikes By the way, Park tools are very good quality for the money.

Bike chain broke on my 21speed promax A series MGX,how do i replace it?


You will need to first determine what the chain broke. If it is because of where you will need to replace the can with a new on. If it was anothe reason then you have a couple options.If you want to repair this yourself you will need to have a bicycle chain tool. Otherwise your local bicycle shop can reinstall the chain for a very low cost, less then the cost of a new chain tool.

If you are going to install it you can remove the bad link and reinstall the chain, however this will likely make you chain too short.

If you are going to replace the chain:
1. Lay the old chain out completely.
2. Cut the new chain the same length as the old chain. If using the quick link provided then make sure to cut the chain with two male ends and make it one link shorter then the original chain.
3.Start installing the chain from the rear derailleur. Start putting the chain in from the lower pulley(wheel on derailleur). Push over the lower pulley and under the upper pulley. Then back up behind and over the cassette (gears on the rear)
4. Now continue pulling the chain to the front. Go through the front derailluer and down around the chainrings.
5. Connect with the other end of the chain.
6.Use the quick link provided with the new chain or push the pin back into the chain (unless in is a shimano chain, then use the provided new pin)
