there are basically 3 screws on a derailleur for adjustments:

a tiny one to set the inward movement limit, i.e. stopping the derailleur being able to move the chain closer towards the hub once it's on the largest cog

another tiny one next to it, to set the outer movement limit, i.e. stopping the derailleur being able to move the chain closer towards the inside of dropout once the chain is on the smallest cog

once you've got those set the chain/cog/transmission change should work regardless of how ghetto it is

aside from some surface rust, the bikes are in better condition than i realized. derailleur didn't need any adjustment, I was having a hard time getting the linear v-brake to work properly, i cleaned and greased the posts but the brake will not hold even tension on both arms or center itself properly.

do you mean the whole derailleur is fucked? or just out of maintainence/ adjustments?

the easiest way to learn how to adjust/tune the deraileur to work 'good enough' is just to open a youtube video.

a basic cleaning and some appropriate lubrication, along with some basic adjustments, may make it work well enough depending on condition

so I just changed the cables on one bike, and it wasn't that bad haha.

out of the three bikes I have only one has drop outs that let me run single speed. I saw some videos on how to change the cables out, I'm going to give the other 2 bikes a try. believe it or not, this is my first time messing with bikes other than bmx lol

Does anyone have any experience doing this? I got some free bikes, but the rear shifter doesn't work properly on either bike. Could I just remove all shifters/derailers and shorten the chain, or is getting a new rear wheel absolutely mandatory for safety reasons? These are wal-mart grade bikes that will only see leisurely neighborhood cruises, nothing long distance. (less than 5 miles a day). One bike would have a little trailer my kids could sit in.
