    Brand new all sram x-4 drivetrain, chain skip

    Hey I recently purchased a sram x4 drive train (shifters, front and rear derailleurs) sram 8 speed chain sram 8speed cassette. My chain skips on my 3 or 4 smallest gears, worst chain skip I have experienced. I tried tuning and re-tuning, all new cable and housing. What could be wrong?

    Bike is a 1996 specialized stumpjumper A1 fs

    I'm curious about the result. The only time I've ever had a chain skip was when I had a frozen link in the chain. It had nothing to do with the derailleur.

    My front chain rings were so worn they were skipping, it was weird though because it was only the biggest and smallest, all fixed though
