    do you mean once you’v changed gear it takes a couple of seconds to actualy get in gear ❓

    if so there’ll be a wire on the rear mech try adjusting that. 😉

    If it actually changes into gear, just takes a bit of time then it probably only needs slight adjustment. On the handlebars, where your gear selector is there will be a cable running out. At the top of that cable you will find the barrel adjuster, which is just a screw to tighten/loosen the cable a bit. Basically just play about with it until your happy with the gears.

    Heres a picture to help, it’s of Google so it’s not the best..
