the derailleur cable is too loose. Shift the shifter into the smallest cog, make sure the chain is on the smallest cog. The derailleur cable will most likely be very slack now. At the rear derailleur, there will be a nut or a allen bolt pinching the cable to the derailleur. loosen this, pull the cable finger tight, tighten the nut or bolt again and then try shifting again. You can dial it in using the barrel adjuster on the derailleur or the shifter.

Unfortunately, there is only one last ditch effort to free up that freewheel. The following link takes you to a very simplified diagram of how a freewheel works : File Roue libre cliquet svg
What's happening in your instance is that the pawl, colored red, is not engaging the outer teeth, possibly due to corrosion, or age. What you can do is use a penetrating oil to get inside the mechanism to try to free it up. In the following link, you will see a freewheel that is most likely similar to yours: Shimano Hyperglide Freewheel
You want to add oil to the edge of that inner ring that says "Shimano" (yours may not say that), while spinning the cranks to draw the oil in. Hopefully, after a while, and maybe a lot of oil, the pawls will free up and start catching.

Good luck!

Are you sure the derailer or sprocket are not bent? The next thing if not that is the cable itself is it pulling the delairer to release the gear from the gear it is in? one final is the bike just may not go into 6th gear depending on which gear you have the front sprocket in because it would pull the front sprocket to far past the crank space where the pedals are at.

A major limitation is the steerer tube length. No matter how many times you cut a steerer tube it won't get longer.

Getting Riser Bars or simply flipping the stem over or getting one with a different rise and reach might give you the added height you need. If you LIKE the handlebars, the stem is the best and least-invasive option as most new ones come with front loaders (detachable front caps) that allow replacement without stripping components off one side of the handlebar. In minutes a Bicycle Shop could swap any number of them onto your bike for you to try.

A reputable Bicycle Shop would have fit the bike to you before you took it home.

The chain goes from the top of the front sprocket to the top of the rear sprockets, between the rear sprocket and the top derailleur wheel and then between the upper and lower derailleur wheels. It then goes forward toward the front sprocket. The text sketch below shows the rear sprocket, chain and derailleur.I hope this helps.

Tire warped or the wheel? You're too powerful, I guess. Check for uneven spoke tension. Get the tools and learn how to fix it yourself or take it to the shop. DON'T RIDE IT LIKE THAT.

FIXYA doesn't appraise items.

Might try joining a forum for Walther P.38 to ask for assistance.

FINALLY found the answer to this:

Yeah, the manual isn't helpful. At all.

I called Treadmill Doctor (www.treadmilldoctor.com) to see what they could give me (I had just gotten a battery from them).

They said I had to take off the side panel, and then the battery was right there.

So, I did it. Here's how.

1) There are about 5 screws that hold the side panels on. If you are sitting on the bike, the panel to your right is the one you are trying to take off. The screws are located:
a) Where the communication port is
b) Around the "neck" that connects the display to the bike
c) In front of where the seat slides
d) At the bottom of the bike on the panel ( this one is hard to find, lay down parallel to the bike, and follow along the bottom, near the wheel, but a little closer to the back)
e) At the back of the seat slider

2) Take off the panel. It comes off, but with a little difficulty due to the pedals. I manhandled the back a little, and then turned the pedal so I could remove the panel in the direction of the arm to the pedal (i.e., moved the pedal up so I could slide the panel up along the pedal to get it off.)

3) There's the battery, about mid way back, by a control panel.
To get it off, there are two screws with nuts on the end holding the battery on. They are on top of the battery. There is a similar-looking third screw on the left side wall, but don't mess with that one. Not necessary.
a) Use either a ratchet or turn pliers to remove the nuts. The front one will be much easier than the back ( mine was located on the front left and back right of the battery). I had to use pliers on the back one because i had no room.
b) Once these two nuts are off, the battery will slide down with the screws still in it and out of the bike. Make sure you disconnect the cables.

4) Put the new battery in.
a) Remove the screws from the other battery, and put them in the SAME spots on the new one.
b) Line up the screws with the holes in the spot for the battery in the bike.
c) Put the nuts back on the screws to tighten the screw in place.
d) Reconnect the wires. The long one is positive (mine was white) and the short one is negative (mine was black). Keep in mind that the battery must go in the same way as the other came out.

5) Replace the side panel.
a) Start with sliding over the pedal, then replace all screws to fasten the side panel back on. I recommend checking the bike by spinning the pedals with your hands once the new battery is in to check to see if it works.

And there you go! Hope it helps!

If there is nothing being displayed, it is likely that the screen will have to be replaced.

A folding bicycle is a bicycle that folds for convenient storage and portability. The perfect folding bike would be one that rides as well as a quality full-size bike, folds in seconds, weighs less than 10 kg (22 lb), and folds small enough to fit under a bus or train seat.
