I have recently bought a carrera fury bike(used)and i need to set up the gears properly as it misses agear.does anybody know how to adjust the gears properly without messing up and making others gears worse?That's my first question,secondly i am considering buying a used carrera fury 20"frame with rockshock forks/handlebars for £95,the frame has minor scratches,nothing really noticeable,i have to replace the adjuster screw on the l.h.s.of the forks as it is cracked,is it a good deal or not and my final question,other than allen keys,sockets/spanners,is their any special tools i need to purchase to strip my bike down and put everything on this other frame?

If you're consistantly missing a gear in the middle of the cassette, you should have your derailleur hanger alignment checked. That's a fairly common problem. Bike shope have a gauge for checking hanger alignment.
