yet somehow I managed to have the 1 store that has 3 of them and they are still priced at $202...
still yet to get in on a Target YMMV clearance deal...
I have 4 Target stores within 10 miles from my house..I hit one a day (M to Thu) and maybe a 5th store (Friday) that is a bit far if I know of a very good clearance (1-2 hours per visit). I usually get around $300 profit from everything I find and resell per week from Target alone. I also buy a lot of crap for myself that otherwise I wouldn't have bought, ex this bike. Target is great if you know what to look for and if you know prices. Also their generous return policy helps a lot.
If anyone in South Atlanta area is interested, Target at Camp Creek Marketplace (East Point) has at least one of these for $144. There were actually two of these bikes. But one had the regular price tag attached to it and the other one only had a barcode sticker below the handles. The price check came up as $144. That was around 3 hours ago.
Keep in mind that it's alignment, then high/low, then fine adjustment. The derailleur shouldn't be bowed in or out. "The "H" screw sets how far the derailleur can travel over the smallest gear can travel to the right. The "L" sets how far it can travel over the largest gear on the left. If you can't shift into the largest/smallest gears, this is where your problem most likely is.
This is probably the part you're at...
The cable tension needs to be adjusted to ensure proper shifting, and with the one click adjusters like on this bike, it can sometimes be finnicky.
If it's jumping down, it needs to be tightened.
If it's jumping up, it needs to be loosened.
If it's jumping more than one gear at once, you're really out of adjustment!
You can do this at the shifter. There's a barrel nut that you can adjust. I don't see one on the rear derailleur itself on this bike so that's your adjustment point. Shift to the highest (smallest) gear and turn the barrel not. If it's still too tight and you're backed all the way off (closest to the shifter) or too loose and you can't turn it anymore, you may have to adjust the cable itself at the rear derailleur by loosening the screw holding the cable. Keep in mind this is close to a last resort. I've seen few that were so bad you couldn't adjust them with the barrel nuts, and that includes other issues as well.
