    Not sure about the slipage, but the best item for chain suck is the Ronnie Ring. Best invention ever. It works.

    I find that I need to change the chain rings at same time as the cassette and chain, otherwise it slips.

    Degrease the chain if it hasnt already been. The tacky "lube" that comes on the chain from the factory, IMO, is like glue and creates more problems than not.

    By slippage, do you mean that the rear derailler is shifting itself to the smaller cogs? Probably need to tighten the rear shift cable.

    200 bucks seems pretty steep, what did they install? And when you replace chain and cassette, you should probably get new rings too, unless they're pristine.

    slippage

    from standing start in granny gear headed up sharp incline(aka.under hi torque) all hell busts lose....a klunk , a jerk and sometimes chain comes off.

    Or, before changing, try to install it at 90 degree angle from the original position. No need to remove the crank or the chain ring, just remove the bolts, turn the chain ring 90 degree(either direction) and bolt it back.

    Sound like, you need chain rings, and to clean off the shipping lube from the chain and then reset up the shifting.

    As above
