If your chain is jumping teeth under load, it is an indication that the chain is worn and stretched. A new chain should fix the problem, but you should also check your cogs and chain rings for wear. Your shop will have the measuring tools to do this.

Campag Chorus medium cage rear mech with 13 - 29 cassette


That's a 16-tooth spread in the rear. The cage can handle 36 teeth of chain length change including the front. That means your highest and lowest chainrings should be within 20 teeth of each other, but I avoid those issues by being careful to find a straighter chain line than anything near a cross-chain, typically not venturing more than one cog past the center opposite the chainring I use. That way I can actually use a shorter chain, too.

You don't say if this happens in the BIG ring, small ring or both. If it's just the big ring I'd suspect there isn't enough chain length.

Cross chaining is unnecessary and bad for your drivetrain. I never go more than one cog past the center of my cassette opposite the chainring I use.

The chain momentarily locks up


This is usually caused by a front deraleur located too close to the outside perimeter of the outside cog. Without looking at it, I would venture to say that by adjusting the deraleur height a little higher (not much), you might get rid of this problem.

THE CHAIN RIDES OVER THE LARGEST REAR COG,AND DOESN'T CHANGE DOWN TO THE SMALLEST,CHANGING UP TO THE LARGEST COG,IT IS ON IT AND STILL ANOTHER GEAR CHANGE TO GO


Hi,

This one's easy enough.. If you move the derailer through it's full stretch you will see that part of it will be blocked in each direction by a small screw. These screw adjusters are to stop the chain from running over the end gears, and sometimes if they're too tight they can stop the chain from reaching the gears in the first place.
A small screwdriver is all you should need, turn the bike upside down, loosen these screws completely and then change gear to one end first until it runs smoothly on the chain and then do the same with the other.
These are designed to be adjustable so you can add or remove gears/change wheel sizes etc and then readjust to run smoothly..

Hope this helps..

Two things to this problem.
1. Clean your drivetrain REALLY, REALLY thoroughly with a good degreaser and a bristled brush. All of it. Clean the derailleurs, the chain, the cables. Once it is all cleaned up and dried off, lubricate the chain and the cables ONLY.
2. Shift your bike into the highest gear and release the cable. Pull it taut and re-tighten it. Flip it over and shift into your middle cassette cog while cranking the pedals. Use the barrel adjuster on your rear shifter to get the jockey wheel on the cassette aligned over the correct cog.
This was an abridged guide to rear derailleur adjustment because it sounds like it was more grunge in the cable or derailleur than anything else, but i'll check back and if this solution doesn't work out, i'll give you tips on a far more thorough overhaul. Just remember a clean drivetrain is a functional drivetrain, and the cables and chain are the only thing you are supposed to lube.

Hope this helps,

Need to replace the cassette body on my Ksyrium SL wheel. Is there a tech sheet on this procedure?


You need two tools: a cassette wrench or socket (it's a splined socket that fits into the cassette through the axle)and a chain whip wrench. You use the chain whip by wrapping it around one of the cogs of the cassette to immobilize it and then loosen the lock nut of the cassette with the cassette wrench. It is just like a screw or bolt. The Cassette needs to be lined up with the splines on the freehub. Find the thin spline and use it as your "key" because it is the only one that width. Then drop the new cassette on to the freehub and re-torque the cassette's lock ring. If the cassette is disassembled rather than one piece, from the largest cog first on the bottom, alternate between cogs and spacers until you are out of spacers. The smallest cogs have these cast in. As you take the old one off, the installation technique is the same in reverse.

matt

Is the bike currently equipped as a six-speed? You can buy a cassette with a different cog range on eBay by looking for 6spd cassettes. Remember that the overall gear ratio is Big ring:Small cog, so a 44-tooth chainring with an 11-tooth small cog on the cassette is rotating your rear wheel 4 times per crank revolution. You can use the ratio to figure out how much faster your new cassette will get you going.
Good luck,

I do not know how to correctly adjust the shifter cable-I have a 7 speed mountain bike-what are the procedures to make sure the tension is correct and properly shift to all gears. It is a trigger shifter....


Assuming that the limit screws are set correctly on the rear derailleur, which they probably are if you haven't fooled with it, and your cables are okay, here is what you do. If you don't have a bike workstand, then get someone to hold the bike up or hang it off the ground with a rope. Turn the cranks and shift to the highest gear (the smallest and outer rear cog). If the chain does not go out to it, then screw the barrel adjustment in the rear derailleur (where the cable goes into it) in until it goes to the outside cog. Beginning with the chain on the outside cog shift to the next lowest gear (keep turning the crank at all times) If the chain does not go to the next smallest cog, then turn the barrel adjustment out until it does. Now try shifting it through all the gears to the inside cog and tweak the adjustment with the barrel adjustment. Also, you might have to take out slack in the inner wire if it has "stretched" out, by loosening the cable bolt on the rear derailleur, pulling the cable tight, then retightening before any of this will work.

I replaced a broken chain now my bike wants to skip like the chai


Over tim and use, the chain and the rear cogs stretch and shape to form. Replacing the chain usually means replacing the rear cog cassette. If the rear cogs are expensive, then replace the chain more often before it breaks and then you don't have to replace the rear cog cassette
