The bike should shift crisply into each gear. Try this; shift into the middle chainring (the ones in front are chainrings), and shift into the 3rd from smallest gear in the back (should be 6th gear). Get someone to hold the rear tire off the ground and pedal it while screwing the barrel nut adjuster (where the cable enters the rear derailleur) counter-clockwise till the chain starts making noise in preparation to shifting. Now screw the nut back in till it stops making noise, this should do it. If this isn't clear or you still have trouble, check out http://www.parktool.com/repair_help/FAQrindx.shtml
