The smaller lever behind the one that activates the brake. First picture. Press toward the center of the bike to go opposite the action of the thumb lever.

Hi I have a Revolution Sabre road bike with a 7 speed shimano cassette. Can I change to a 9 or 10 speed and if so what would I need to to at the minimum cost.

Not practical, as you would need to change far too many parts of the drive train, and the rear wheel, at a significant expense. Two of the gears added would be higher than your current high gear, and therefore of very limited use (no, they will not make you go faster). If you feel you have to have a 10 or 11 speed then sell your bike and buy a good used one.

I’m happy to help further over the phone at

How do I fix jumping gears on rear derailleur?

I also would check if the chain is not worn out. When the lenght increases the chain links, these also can make the chain jump. Put the bike up and rotate the peddles, while shifting gears and watch if the d?railleur moves fast enoug. Perhaps even the jumping is over, because the links are not pulled out.
for chain wear, check out this wiki. Bicycle chain Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

If want my workout to concentrate on my abs, should I buy upright or recumbent exercise bikes?

Most defiantly recumbent bikes, the recumbent bikes concentrate the workout on the mid-section core muscles such as abs, Oblique and Core stabilizing muscles.

The front gears are not shifting. How can I fix it? And also how can I adjust the brakes?

When was the last time you replaced your cables?
If you have checked that every other part of the drive train is free from obstruction (eg. move the front deralieur with your fingers) then I would strongly suggest looking at your cabling. Once new cable are fitted then you can adjust the limit screws on you deraileurs to get your gear shifting nice and smooth. YouTube is full of useful videos.
Good luck!

I have fitted a campag 13-29 cassetteBut now when out of the saddle my chain clicks,do i need to change my rear derailleur size.It is currently a short cage.

Hmm, only out of the saddle? What gear(s)? If only the 29 I'd say the equivalent of the "B-screw" needs adjustment first but if all gears click you probably just have a mismatch between aged chain and new gear teeth.

Im thinking about buying a 2000 yamaha v star that has been sitting for three yrs, is there anything i should be awair of

Fuel lines, calibers, spark plug wires, GAS, oil, etc. Basically you want to ensure that this bike is road worthy. Check the tires, drive train, chain or axle, brakes and calibers (squeeze the handle to make sure it works without locking up) Also carb will have to be rebuilt ($65 - $150). Hope this helps.

Can you please provide me a list of all major bike types?

I have listed the most famous bike types: BMX Bicycle

Bicycle Moto Cross (BMX) bicycles are designed for rough off road riding and are typically single speed. People also use them for stunt riding, and you may see some fitted with stunt pegs.

Mountain Bike (MTB)

A mountain bike is designed for trail riding and downhill riding. It can also be ridden on the road. They come in many shapes and forms. Some have no suspension, whilst others have front and rear suspension. A mountain bike without rear suspension is usually called a hard tail bike.

Most MTBs use 26 inch wheels which is the standard. This size wheel is fairly strong, especially when coupled with the large off road tyres that are fitted to MTBs.

An MTB is suited for off road riding and will handle rough terrain quite easy. It is very stable on rough terrain, but is a lot slower to ride on the road when compared to a road bike. It is also suitably geared for climbing hills.

Hybrid Bicycle

Another style of bike that has a similar riding position to a mountain bike, but better road speed is a Hybrid bicycle. Hybrids are a cross between a mountain bike and a road bike. They have an upright comfortable position, road tyres, and are usually a lot lighter than a mountain bike.

Hybrid bicycles are typically used for commuting.

Touring Bicycle

A touring bicycle is designed for loaded cycle touring and has the capability to be fitted with mudguards, racks, panniers and extra water cages. They are typically fitted with wider road type tyres that are suitable for gravel riding also.

They usually come with a stronger frame and longer chainstays so that the back of your feet don't hit the rear panniers. They are usually fitted with a relaxed drop bar style handlebar. The geometry of the frame is also different and allows for much more easier steering and handling when loaded.

Expedition Bicycle

As above for touring, but usually fitted with Trekking bars and MTB gear and is designed for extreme off road conditions.

Randonneur or 'All Rounder'

A rare beast in Australia where we like to specialise. 'Randonneur' is a French term, coined to describe a bike that can do a bit of everything - you can ride with the pack or take a doddle with the kids, you can ride light or carry a load, you'd use it to visit Gran on Sunday then pick up some groceries on the way home. They are the 'family station wagon' of cycling. However, like any Jack of All Trades, they do everything well but the specialists do it better. They can carry a load but not like a heavy tourer. They are fast but heavier than a racer and with more comfortable geometry. They have wider wheels and tyres to ride on rough roads but wont handle true off road work.

Typically, they look like any other racing or flat bar road bike ... until you look at the details. Most randonneurs start life as a touring bike or hybrid, and are then modified by the owner over time to reflect how they are used.
