Why can’t I change gears on my bike?

Most of the time, a skipping chain is caused by cable stretch. In the first half dozen rides on a new bike your shift cables stretch the most. To fix a skip in the rear derailleur, shift your chain into the smallest ring on your rear cassette (the hardest gear) and the middle or larger ring on your front derailleur.

What causes ghost shifting?

Neil is right, most all “auto shifting” or “ghost shifting” is the result of cable-tension problems. If the cable is a bit loose, the derailleur will try to shift “up” to a smaller cog. Shift to the highest (smallest) cog and try to pull the DR cable away from the frame. If there’s a lot of slack, it’s too loose.
