    Check derailleur hanger alignment and the limit screws. Is it the 2nd biggest cog or 2nd smallest?

    Second vote for checking hanger alignment. I was goin nutes this season adjurting by r derailier and having no luck. It was always skipping in the middle. Finally, went to a lbs that I don't normally go to and he pulled out the hanger adjustment tool and 30 seconds later. It was perfect........

    I started having a problem with ghost shifting on the three smallest cogs right after a crash the other day. I thought the dérailleur was the culprit until I found a pinched chain link. On the larger cogs the chain was tracking around fine but on the little ones the pinched link would not bend far enough and was throwing the chain off the cog.

    I was having this problem to and for the love of me, I couldn't fix it at all. I ended up bringing it to a LBS and they said it was cause the cable wasn't lubed up enough. :shrug:
