Gears changing by itself
#1
Hello,
This is my first post and I am so glad I found this site. I have an Specialized hybrid bike that I bought about 5 years ago. I mainly ride it on the weekends. About a year ago, I noticed that when I hit a bump, the gears shift by itself. I know I need to tighten something but I just don't know what. Hope someone can help. thanks..
