Chain skips
#1
I have a Bianchi with SRAM Red components.  The cassette is a 11-28 10 speed.  The crank is 53-39.  I recently put on a new SRAM 10 speed chain and the chain skipped while riding when I was applying heavy pressure to the pedals.  I then put the old chain back on and the problem went away.  It feels as if the skipping is coming from the cassette rather than the crank.  I tried it again with yet another new chain and had the same problem.  Is it possible that the cassette has worn with the chain and it won't work with a new chain?  I thought I might ask before spending the money on a new cassette.

Thank you,

Jack

I would agree that the cassette has worn with the chain.
