Ok I've got a new jones diamond frame with a 8 speed gear cluster and a triple front (I'm in houston, don't need a lot of range). I'm currently running a sunrace 9 speed rear der. (I nuked my slx shadow on my first ride, when mud got caught in the chain and ripped the sucker right off!) Rear hub is a 10mm thru axle, so I know nothing is moving back there. It seems to be the worst when am in the middle range and it doesn't matter what front ring I'm on. It seems to do it when I'm coasting for a while and then start pedaling. It seems to skip a beat then 'catch/shift/catch' and I'm off to the races. It didn't seem to do it so bad on the shadow derailleur but both this one and the LX I had on there it is pretty bad. I don't get much chain slap either with this current derailleur. I'm 250 and kind of a masher, but I do unload when I shift (don't want a broken chain). It even does it when I ride with my wife on the street. (though if I keep the torque light it doesn't seem to do it as much).
Any thoughts? Is my chain too long/b adjust screw/more play with the barrel nut, I'm at a loss. My LBS can't seem to get it to do it for him when they ride it, it's very frustrating being a clyde sometimes...
