New Trike...chain slip
#1
My wife and I both have new ICE Adventure trikes...we both have experienced chain slippage...when I am on my largest front ring and on the small rings in the rear and pedaling hard I get slippage at times. Everything is new so don't think it is a wear issue...otherwise everything works great! Shifts fine between gears....
Thanks!

check for stiff links in chain
check alignment of rear derailleur hanger
may need a post purchase tune-up, most shops offer this for free.
cables may have stretched a bit and housing seated in.
There are two kinds of people in the world, "Those who help themselves to people, and those who help people!"
