Bike tech help for the non-bike weenie.

I've resurrected my bike for the second time from the shed at my mom's to get back into riding regularly, but this time there is something wrong with the gear shifters. Bear with me as I try to explain inside as I know little about the nuts and bolts of bikes. I'm hoping the bike nerds of MeFi can help me diagnose the problem and give me an idea of how much it might cost to fix so that I can weigh repair with purchasing a new bike. [more inside]

Ferrari Bicycle

What's wrong with my bike- the chain or the gears?

What's wrong with my bike- the chain or the gears? Or me? My three-year-old bike has always had, to one degree or another, a problem with slippage, in which the chain momentarily loses the gear teeth when I'm pushing especially hard on the pedals. Finally, this Sunday, the chain broke, after acting up especially bad and frequently going very slack when I was coasting. The question is, do I just need a nice new chain to fix my slippage problem, or is the problem with my gears? Do I need to replace them? Or am I just riding it too rough?

How to use a bike to power appliances

I'd like to use my bike to power simple household items, such as our hand-cranked coffee grinder or the electric chargers for my cell phone and laptop. I'm thinking of this as a home-build project which I could use with my regular road bike. Where would be a good place to find mix & match machine parts, such as gears, chains, or axles? Does such a catalog exist, or would it be necessary to go to a real machine shop and get parts made? As a kid, I was handy with Lego Technic, and I'm looking for something at about that level of difficulty (adjusted +16 years for age, of course). 80-20 and a simple training stand would do part of the job, but I'd still need gears and axles.
