I JUST got my bike tuned up and the chain came really loose. Due to finals and everything I've been unable to take it back to the shop for a few weeks. Any idea how much it will cost to fix a loose chain? Or any help on doing it myself? I have a Fuji cambridge iv, so the gears are different from all the videos I look at online. I am new to bikes and jut want my bike back!!!

I'm not sure-I'll watch this thread for more info, but based on my experience with fixed chains and things like that, it shouldn't take that long for a shop to do.
