I don't know how to ride a bike and now that I have one I'd like to learn how to use it. Bicycling websites are no help because I have no idea what they are talking about. They're all too advanced for someone like me who has never ridden one.
First of all, why are the pedals not turning when I "walk" the bike forward? is that normal?
When I walk it backwards that thing, that little thing beside the rear wheel I think it's called derailer (?), is slowly yanked forward by the chain then snaps back down after a while.
The chain keeps falling off when I ride it probably because I don't know where to put the darn thing. There are so many spoked discs! If I put the chain on the biggest gear in front, do I then lay it on the smallest gear at the rear wheel?
I've put off learning because of these problems.
Also, I just had it "fixed" by my brothers friend last week and my dad keeps saying there's nothing wrong with it!
Could someone point me to a site (preferrably with big pictures) where I can see the correct placement of the chain?
