13296Re: Xtracycle, nuvinci, kickback, and chain routing
- Apr 14, 2011Does it feel like it's slipping, or skipping? I could see skipping due to poor chain tension, or more likely poor chainline. If it's slipping it almost has to be inside the hub. The only time I noticed slipping in my N171b was when it was very new, and only when I shifted the range from the highest gear to the lowest before applying pressure. I'd say that within the first week with the hub the effect was gone.
