Im riding a Haro Escape 8.2 with a Holtzfeller 2.2RG crankset and I just replaced an older chain with a new sram 951. I am getting extreme chainslip in the front, and shortening the chain didn't help. I know the whole replace the cassette when you replace the chain thing (i haven't yet -- old chain broke so I just grabbed a new one to hold me over) but I've never heard of slip in front, even on fairly worn cogs. I cant stand up at all and i get half turn skips if i try to push hard when sitting. I never had chain slip with the old chain (the shop threw it out when they switched them, of course.)
I'm also getting a little skipping in back on the smallest 2 cogs, but they're pretty worn
Time for a whole new rings, chain, cassette, or is something else going on?
