    chain slips on rear set

    my chain, mostly when im in second main cog, shifts by itself between 5 and 6 rear gear very frequently and worse under strain. I have a sram x.3 rear der. and it just seems like it "can't decide"
    between gears

    most likely a small derailluer adjustment...adjust the barrel adjuster on your shifters 1/4 trun clockwise and see if it still skips between gears. Continue 1/4 turn at a time until it stops.

    FYI-if your drivetrain is really worn out, no amount of adjustment will stop the skipping
