I have a pretty basic 15-speed that my roommate bought for from Target...im actually wondering how to adjust it correctly...i mean it im clueless!!

Oh i will stay off I'4 for sure...im so afraid to even be on main city roads around here...no one ever looks for peds or bikers and ive had 3 or 4 friends that have been hit...it scares me!

The Bicycle Mechanics forum can answer most of your questions. Check out Sheldon Brown's website, and Park Tool.

Captain Brown is a member of BikeForums, and a great guy. If you're lucky, he may answer your question personally!
