"That happens when the shifter cable is either too loose or too tight. There's usually one or two "barrel" adjusters that allow you to loosen/tighten this cable. If the chain is in the cog smaller than it should be, then you need to…"

"Dear Santi,   I don't have much experience with bikes but my Giant Cypress has 9 gears on the rear wheel and 3 chainrings at the pedals/cranks. Quite often when I come to a hill and change down from a high gear to a low gear the chain does…"

"Hi all, I got few mails from the Reid cycles offering tips as to how to workout the chain issue I posted day before.  I was off work today and so I decided to try my hand.  I read the mail a couple of times, watched few videos and got…"

"Hi Santi,   I bought a Schwinn S1 mans bike because I liked the look of it and it was within my price range. I also experienced problems with the bike but because I love it so much I will persevere with it. I bought it at Burwood and luckily it…"

"Thank you James and thank you all.  I am not used to bike riding for few years and I am not fit physically due to some medical treatments at the moment and the hilly areas were the reason why it took so much energy. Thank you all for so much…"

"Also Santhi - it's worth building a relationship with your local bike shop anyway, as you won't want (or need) to carry it all the way back to Newtown every time something on it needs to be looked at/you want a particular part or…"

"Chain tension is easy to fix. A 5km ride shouldn't use all your energy, but sorry you've had a bad start to bike riding life. My suggestion would be to get it serviced/fixed at a local bike shop for the same $50 it would effectively cost…"

Bill Parker replied to Lindy S's discussion Reid Bikes
"Don't lose heart, it will come good, there are many reasons why the chain might come off but once adjusted OK it should be good for a long time. A little bit of bike maintenance knowledge will go a long way, I would seek out a knowledgable…"
