    Got a new Goblin but having problems.

    Hey,
    I just got my new Goblin and it rode and looked great, but both times I rode it the chain came off and got stuck behind the cassette. I was able to fix it the first time. The second, it got lodged behind the cassette and I can't free it. I had some help on the trail by some experienced bikers and they all said I'd have to remove the cassette. So, I had to hike the bike out on my shoulders a few miles. I'm new to bike maintenance, but not scared of it. I've watched a bunch of videos on youtube on how to remove the cassette.


    So, I guess my question is
    This the Tool I need? Plus a chain whip? Do local bike store carry it? I am in Michigan Lake Orion area if that helps.

    What can I do to prevent this from happening every trip?

    The sucky part was I hurried up and got the bike for this weekend and now I am stuck. Sucks to have a new bike setting in the garage and can't ride. I am scared if I have to order the tools I'll have to wait over a week for them to ship. I know it's not a huge deal, but I really want to ride my new bike!!!!

    Thanks for any help.

    The link to your tool didn't show up for me but yes, your local shop should have what you need to fix your problem. If they are open today, you may want to have them take care of the problem for you and adjust your derailleur. My .02

    Thanks for the reply. The linked tool was a Park Cassette Lockring Tool FR-5. I called around and nobody is open today.

    Is your rear deraileur hanger bent??

    That could be the cause of the chain going past the largest cog.

    That second pic sure makes it look like it's bent. Jeremy would probably know for sure.

    That's bent. Not very much but enough that it may cause the chain to shift past the biggest cog and into the spoke guard. It can be bent back straight fairly easily, but if that's beyond your comfort level I may recommend that you take it into a local shop. Should be a quick fix.
