    Chain tossing question

    Hello all, new to the forum.

    I have a 2004 Giant Yukon that I when ridden relatively aggressively over light rocky terrain (read: no dirt jumping, no freeriding, no drops, just fast) throws the chain. I know this is an entry-level bike and maybe this is just to be expected in certain situations, but was wondering if there's any inexpensive way to improve this. Front derailleur is Shimano Acera, rear is Alevio. I have to opportunity to purchase a Deore front derailleur for $15 if that would help. Any ideas/suggestions/questions to think about would be great.

    Thanks much...

    Changing the front dérailleur wont help... I have to ask what gear are you in when the chain falls off... Small front and small rear???... technically you shouldn't be in those gears at the same time

    A little more info would be nice. It could be as simple as needing a derailleur adjustment.
