  Chain slips a tooth
Posted by: Guest - 07-18-2008, 11:00 AM - Forum: Chain, Chainrings & Sprockets - Replies (1)

Hi Alex,
After a year of not using my ATB, I decided to clean the dust off it and go for a ride. After an afternoon of cleaning, adjusting the shifters & breaks I took it out for a spin, but every time I wanted to put some extra pressure on the pedals, the chain slipped a tooth or two on my back sprocket, no matter what gear. What can I do to fix it? (it has a Shimano Deore derailer from 2005).

What is the best way to remove dirt from your chain and derailleurs after a ride?


  Chain slipping every second rotation
Posted by: Guest - 07-18-2008, 10:44 AM - Forum: Chain, Chainrings & Sprockets - Replies (1)

Every second turn of the crank chain tension slackens and crank jumps, like chain is trying to catch up on the stroke.

Could you give me any useful ways that I can straighten a disk brake rotor without having to buy something?

  New Headset Indexing
Posted by: Guest - 07-18-2008, 10:22 AM - Forum: Headsets - Replies (1)

My headset is indexed. I had it replaced 2 months ago and it is already indexed. I noticed there was still some feeling of it even immediately after it was replaced. I admit I used a cheap bearing set ($40) but the only other one they had was German and cost $135. Suggestions appreciated.


  What is the best way to clean derailer cogs?
Posted by: Guest - 07-18-2008, 09:40 AM - Forum: Cleaning - Replies (1)

I have a mountain bike that in collecting lots of mud in the front and rear derailer cogs what is the best way to clean them? Also sometimes when I change to a lower gear it waits 4/5 seconds before doing it or does not change unless I change down another gear. Thanks. Mike
