    Cassette skips

    Hey all,

    I have.. if I remember correctly.. an M760 Cassette. I use it as part of my "road wheel set" for my mtb. I have around 2700 miles total with 1,700 miles for this year so far on it. I was out for a 20 mile road ride when my cassette seemed to skip a 1/4 of a revolution. It did this 8 times in 12 revolutions. What gives? Is it due for a tear down and lube?

    thanks

    could be your freehub needs lube or maintenance.

    Did you recently replace your chain?

    Nope. Same old chain.

    Be nice if you would tell more about the entire drivetrain, although just considering the number of miles on the cassette it wouldn't be surprising that you've got some seriously worn cogs (especially the ones you use the most) that could cause skipping. How old is the chain? How long have you been running the chainrings? What's the condition of your freehub?

    Surprisingly, the freehub and cassette are still in pretty good condition considering the miles. I'm sure the chain rings could get replaced soon though. I'm guessing I should replace them with the chain. I'm open to suggestions on the chain rings. So many freakin rings out there..They currently are 42S/32S/22S.

    I examined my chain, and that may have been the prob. One of the chain pins was backing out a bit and one side of that connecting link is just about toast.

    Now I gotta read the chain reviews on this site and see which one is least likely to snap on me.

    Chain rings

    nevermind the title.

    I was looking at wipperman chains. I wish they made a green one.
