Went over to the Rose for a shakedown ride before the weekend just to keep the legs fresh and see how the bike does since its tuneup. Right off I'm getting some chain skipping. I can't tell weather its coming from the front or back.
Stand up on 1 one small hill, the chain skips and I'm thrown forward and rack "the boys" on the top tube.
Ooh that hurt, and pissed me off.
Stop to adjust the rear D to see if that helps.
I think it helped?
Stand up and mashing up another hill, it skips again and this time I go over the bars.
I'm glad no one was around to hear the quantity or quality of curse words that came out.
If I do say so myself, I do a fine job of joining curse words togather to really express myself.
I do rest of the ride in big ring now to see if its the middle ring.
Sure enough, no more skipping.
Now I'm kinda ticked off cause I just replaced the middle ring back in May. Freak'n Shimano xt crap.
4 months of service out of a damn middle ring? Bullshit.
When I ordered the last ring at the shop they ordered a 2nd to keep there for stock. Luckily they hadn't sold it yet. I took it home and installed it.
I'll do another shake down ride tonight and see what happens.
