How to fix your gear shifter
#1
Can you make a How to video on "How to fix your gear shifter"? Mines broken and I don't know how to fix it! Now I can't go really fast because it's stuck at gear 1!

Hi Ricky,
What kind of shifter do you have?

It's a Microshifter.

It could be a number of things. The first thing I'd check is your limit screws on the rear derailleur. Watch this tutorial:
http://bikeride.com/adjust-rear-derailleur/ (at about 1:10)
Aside from that, inspect all of your components from the shifter, cable, down to the derailleur and look for anything out of place or broken. Let me know how it goes...
