Chain Slip Solutions?(4 posts)

I have a new cassette and chain - both clean and lubed, but when I am in the 39 in front I experience chain slip (almost seems like it wants to shift to another cog - but only briefly) when I am in the larger - middle cogs in the rear. Any suggestions on how to solve this little problem?

Use the trim adjustment on your shifters to tighten or loosen the cable tension.

Sounds like a cable tension problem. Adjust the barrel adjuster at the rear derailleur. Counter-clockwise increases tension.

In addition to the cable tension adjustment, you may need to adjust the stops on the derailure to center the jockey wheel on the largest and smallest cog.
