Just bought a Novara Randonee. I have had problems with shifting. A couple of times the chain has locked up when shifting the front derailler. Tonight, the back derailler started shifting on its own as I...

There could be multiple causes for the front derailleur problem, which I assume means that the chain gets jammed between the derailleur and chainwheels. It is not possible to tell you what it is over the Internet, especially as it could be a combination of factors. You can start to look into it by attempting
Front Derailleur Adjustment. Detach the shift cable and make sure it moves smoothly back and forth as you move the shift lever. If not then the cable needs lubrication or replacement first. How To Replace Road Bike Gear Cable . Once the cable is OK proceed with derailleur positioning and adjustment from start to finish, skipping no steps. If you are not confident following the steps, or the problem continues, you need to get help at a bike co-op or shop.

The rear derailleur problem is most likely due to a sticking shift cable, such that you moved the shift lever but the cable did not move as many gears, until it later slipped to the correct gear. Follow the brake cable procedure above to see if that helps.

p.s. The problem of course has nothing to do with the bike brand/model.

I have a Kawasaki kx20s 10 speed boys mountain bike that needs the rear brake cable replaced and both the front and rear derailer gear cables adjusted or possibly replaced. Is there a manual or diagram of...

1st The brakes: Once you have ran the cable through appropriate cable holders and to the brakes-you hold the brake calipers shut-remove excess slack from cable by pulling on it with pliers and back off a little before tightening the nut holding the cable(amount you have to back off tension depends on how strait your wheel is).
The Front Derailer doesn't usually have adjustment so you put the gear lever in top gear-loosen the nut holding the cable-push the derailer into the right position-remove slack from cable with pliers then tighten the nut.
The Rear Derailer: will need to be done the same way if your running a new cable..*But there is a screw on the derailer near the junction of the 2 parts that adjusts the position of the derailer- so you can do minor adjustments-**NOTE-there are 2 screws- 1 changes the position in or out and the other changes the angle**

I need to change my back gear cable

Shift your rear derail down to the smallest cog on the cassette. Loosen the nut that holds the cable onto the derail. If you are reusing the outer cables back the inner cable out to the shifter. If your replacing the outers also, note where they are installed. There should be an allen screw on the bottom of the shifter that will free up the shifter and expose the knob on the end of the cable. Pull out the old cable and install new in reverse. Insert the cable into the clamp on the derail. Pull the cable taught with pliers while tightening nut on clamp. Run through the gears while on middle ring on front. Turn barrel adjuster on derail in and out to dial in shifting. That should do it. Good luck and let me know if you have any problems.
