    Harsh Shifting

    I had a wee bit of an accident and had my rear derailer and chain as well as some spokes replaced. Now it seems when I ride the shifting seems harsh. No I'm not standing on the pedals uphill and shifting. Same as I did prior to the accident. I was wondering could the chain be a link or two short? The rear der cable was replaced and at first I just took it as initial stretch but its still going and I've notice the teeth on my cassette look pretty worn out for its age.
    Any ideas??

    When you have accidents to that degree you should make sure your derailleur hanger didn't get bent, too. Why do you think your chain has been shortened? "Harsh" shifting isn't very descriptive on the other hand....
