BB / Crank / Freehub POP!!!(2 posts)

BB / Crank / Freehub POP!!!tookie
May 12, 2003 11:35 AM
Somebody help me out here. I got a DA 9spd setup and for the last week when i torque down on the pedals (like when I just start to stand up for a climb or jump out of the saddle for a sprint) the drive train goes "POP!" or "PING!" and it feels like something's slipping. I checked the crank bolts and they're snug. checked the chainring bolts and they're snug. the chain is new, cassette not too old. the freehub body (ti) on my da hub has got a lot of little nicks in the splines; could this be causing the problem? any other sources i should check/re-check? thanks.

Check to make sure the cable tension is right on the rear derailleur. Sometimes the der. being a bit off will cause shifting under load.
