This is my first road bike, 1985 Schwinn Sprint, and the first time i have worked on bikes. I like to think that i am fairly mechanicaly inclined so working on them hasnt been to hard so far. I have adjusted the brakes and put on a new chain and tires.
First problem is that when ever i stop pedaling my chain goes limp because the back gears keep spinning. Is something wrong or do i just need to oil them.
Second problem may be related to the first.. My rear gears like to shift by themselves i think for the same reasons as listed above
3rd problem is that when I want to shift up to my last gear (10) form the previous gear (9) it doesnt like to **** but when i drop dow to rh gear before theat (7) and shift to the top gear (10) it will go right away. Im also having trouble shifting my front gears from the smaller one to the lower one. do my cables just need to be adjusted?
Any info would be great.
