How to adjust your bicycle gears – a video

In this video, I show you how to properly adjust gears on your road or mountain bike.

Please have a watch and let me know in the comments if you have any questions.

The only tools you’ll need for this job are:

  • 5mm allen wrench
  • Small screwdriver – a flat blade screwdriver is perfect

This is a handy skill to have in case you ever need to replace a damaged, worn or old shifter cable on your bicycle. The video does not show the actual cable replacement – I’ll do a video on that in the future.

I hope this video teaches you some valuable new skills and makes your bicycle maintenance easier and quicker.
