Adjusting gears on a 3-speed
But gears also need some love from time to time. You should adjust your gears when they start to feel sluggish, when they rattle, or when the chain almost hops off when you shift gears.
In the video below, we show you how to easily adjust the gears if you have a Shimano Nexus 3-speed.
- Set the shifter to position 2.
- Loosen the locknut on the bell crank.
- Turn the adjustment screw until the yellow marking is in between the arrows.
- When you are finished adjusting, tighten the locknut again.
