One of my gear cables has been caught on something and has stretched quite alot and now my rear gears dont work at all, I have tightend by screwing the connection on the gear changer but it just goes too tight and I cant move the gear changer at all.
UploadI use my bike to and from work and when I went to ride home last night the cable was no longer very slack but very tight and I was unable to change gear at all on the rear cogs. I undid the cable at the derailier and slackend it up and fiddled abou and now have it working again the only problem is when going down the gears it is very hard/stiff to turn the gear shifter (I have the twisty handle gear shifts thingies) but I dont have much time (or light) on a night so ill try to sort it over the weekend, gonna give my bike a right proper clean. at least I can change gear now. Thanks for the help
