· I endorse self propulsion
hi guys, noob question...2 weeks ago i got an '05 Rockhopper comp and i'm having issues w/ the chain slipping when i put hard pressure on the pedal (due to steeper inclines). doesn't happen all the time, but enough to be annoying, and its not that its changing rings or gears, but its like it slips off of one link and catches the next. would this be caused by poor technique or is there a mechanical explanation? i've read about cable stretching, but would that happen this soon?
