Topic: gear tuning.

Posted on: 12th Aug 2014 7:39 AM    Quote and Reply

I managed to rectify the brake screeching I asked about earlier by myself by adjusting the pads toe in. Now I have an issue with my aleoca bike gear.
Went for a short ride yesterday, and found that gear 1 and 2 has got no difference and gear 6 which is the highest gear causes the chain to slip out.
Should I try tuning the revoshift myself or bring it out to the bike shop nearby?
How much would they charge normally?
Reluctant to bring it back to suntec giant where I bought it from last week as it's too much of a hassle although it would be free tuning.

Sounds like you need to adjust the limit screws and the cable tension. $5 for a five minute job unless you go to a flashy high end shop where they probably charge you $10. It is pretty easy job just need a screwdriver you can check out you tube if you want to try yourself

Yah I know aleoca suck. Just bought it as I knew I wouldn't have much time riding these few months as I will be busy. Just buy cheap to stop my cycling itch. Will upgrade in the near future...
Ok probably just bring it to the bike shop across the road another day.

Went to Teck Hock Hin Trading at blk 128 at bedok north st 2 and uncle quoted me $15 to adjust my gears. Straightaway left as was turned off by the price.

Cycled to Everspring at 57A New upper changi road and uncle straightaway adjusted my bike without telling me the price. Did a very detailed and good job as he fine tune my bicycle from gears to brakes to paddle.
Charged me only $4 for it.
All 6 gear speeds work perfectly now.
Highly recommended!
