Okay, I'm very new to bike mechanics....
Just got this off ebay
and I'm having problems shifting (besides the fact that the original tire went flat very soon after I put air in it- I think it's been a while!)... When I try to downshift (right lever- rear deraillure) the lever just kinda springs back forward, and shifts the bike back up! I mean, moving or sitting still, if I pull the right lever back, it just springs back forward. Make sense? I'm not at all accustomed to shifting with levers, being more familiar with modern mountain bikes with easy push button type shifters. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks in advance!
PS- I'm so happy to find this community- I really want to get rid of my gas powered conveyence, and, I'm sure I can count on you guys for help, and hope I can contribute knowlege in the future!
