Been cycling for few years and now with the credit crunch age we are in, I am trying to carry out any repairs myself rather than go along to my local bike repair shop.
My issue is with the gears. Cleaned the whole chain system and now have a rather odd problem. Shifting up is not a problem but when i try to shift down, it sounds and feels like the chain has not shifted over completely and if i wait long enough it seems to slip into place.
The best and quickest way to cure it is if need gear 3 for example is to switch down to 2 and then move up to 3 which is a pain to do all the time.
Your advice is greatly needed and will be hugely appreciated.
