Put the chain to the inside of the front cog wheel, beside the pedals, first but not onto it, so you have plenty of room for pulling the chain to the rear. Fit the wheel back into place and before tightening it pull down the spring loaded arm, with the small cog wheel beside the back wheel. This takes the tension off the chain and allows you to put it into place on the back wheel. Tighten up the wheel. When it's tightened fit the chain onto the top of the front cog wheel. Lift the back wheel off the ground and turn the pedals forward. The chain will click onto the front cog wheel when you have turned the pedals one complete turn.

If you need to see a picture of how it should look at the back you can see one at http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/bik/2409696114.html

My chain slipped, the part attached near the back wheel... "the two small wheels that rotates the chain I believe that it shifts the gears" it has fallen off and bent doing the time it was...


Ask a local Bike Shop. Derailleurs for that bike are cheap. Evaluating the bike for a bent derailleur hanger and fixing it is a job for the pros. Word to the wise. Never pedal backward or roll the bicycle backward if it is the rear derailleur is not precisely aligned with a gear. It WILL rip bend or the derailleur right off.

Having a steering issue. Front wheel wants to "flop" in anything other than a really wide turn. Is there anything that could be wrong/broken, or is this just because of the rake of the front...


The situation that you describe does sound like a rake based issue. Low tire pressure makes it much worse. Aside from lower speed annoyances, this design will be much more stable on the road, as speeds increase. Unlikely that something is wrong, or you would have lots more issues.

While changing rear tire, my deraileur came off. The chain seems to be snarled up. I don't know how to ge the deraileur back on correctly. Thanks for your help.


With the wheel off remove the two pins which locate the guide wheels on the deraileur. Take off the guide wheels and the guide plate. Now straighten the chain and unwind the snarled area. Locate the chain around the smallest cog wheel on the back wheel and mount the wheel to the bike. The chain will hang slack. Now mount the upper guide wheel and guide plate to the deraileur making sure that the chain feeds off the rear cog and passes around the guide wheel towards the front of the bike. Push the deraileur forwards relative to the chain and slip the lower guide wheel in between the guide plates and pushing the chain back in the guides & fasten with the pin. As you reassemble the plates and wheels on the deraileur be sure to observe carefully which way the chain is running. It is quite logical and this should prevent mistakes being made

Chain keeps fallin off!


Does the rear wheel go on such that you can adjust it to take any play out of the chain? If so, turn the bike upside down or put it on a bike stand. Loosen the back wheel and pull it so that the chain is tighter and then tighten the wheel. There are other possible causes but I suspect this since you recently removed the wheel. Also I'm not sure how often the chain falls off. If this doesn't work, ask again and let us know how often its coming off. Good luck!
