ok so after one day of riding and a nice little tumble, my bike was stuck in one gear. If i tried to switch, it would go, but then fall back in to where it was.
So I rode the rest of the trail, went home and tried to figure out the problem. The cable was kinda loose so i fixed that up that problem. I also noticed that if I have the gears selector in the #1 position and manually put the chain in that position, I can run through the gears, but after on cycle through the chain wont return to that last gear, it will stay on the second gear even with the selector reading #1.
I'm thinking that maybe the Derailleur got bent on the tumble, I just dont wanna buy a new one if I dont need it. Sorry for all the mumbo jumbo but I'm still very new to the "mechanics of biking". If this makes sense to anyone I'd aprecciate any input.
