|When peddling very hard, my chain seems to slip or jump. I examined the rear derailleur and it seemed to be lined up with the cogs. To make sure, I adjusted the barrel adjuster both directions to no avail. I also tightened the B screw. The derailleur has some play if I wiggle it-- significantly more than that on my wife's bike.
Is there anything else I can do? Should I just buy a new one? The current one is 5 years old with a few thousand miles on it.

|Does it jump teeth on the same cog? On all cogs or just the one(s) used the most?
Or does it try to shift to another (usually larger) cog?

|The chain stays on the same cog.
It happens for several of the cogs (smaller ones). It may happen for all cogs, but I cannot put sufficient stress on the drivetrain in my neighborhood since all roads are flat (central IL).

|Unless you are using an old chain with a new cassette, you've probably worn out at least the smallest cogs. Replace at least the cogs that skip and the next biggest one, and the chain.|

|could be the freehub body. i just had to replace mine cuz there were tons of small nicks in the splines. caused certain cogs to slip just slightly when under pressure.|| |
