Ive just registered onto this site and am very excited about it as it looks a great site and everyone looks like a decent bunch of people.
The main reason i registered is i have just bought a bike. (BOSS STEALTH) My gears have been clicking on it and i have just today realised what it was and it was the back derailer was touching the back cog. I was mainly wondering if anyone knew how i would be able to sort it out. Would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome Vezza. Sorry, I can't say I've had the same problem. It might be a better question on the maintainence forum. I'm located in S.W. PA. where in the NE are you from?

Please describe the bike. Mountain, road, hybrid, etc. What type of gearing and the dérailleur.
Hi Vezza! I've personally found that Park Tool has some really good instructions... Check out this link for the rear derailleur:
Are you talking about North East, PA? If so, we're practically neighbors; I'm in Harborcreek...

hi ! you need to adjust the b screw on the left side of the rear dérailleur . turn the screw clockwise until it no longer hits the gears .
