HI there. I am all set to enter my first race this Sunday, went riding today and now have a new problem with my bike. The jam up is I have to work 12 hr days the next two and wont be able to get my bike fixed my the LBS before that. Before I throw in the towel and not race I wanted to see if it sounds like something I may be able to fix on my own. This is the problem:
On steep short uphills, when I shift down with a moderate amount of tension on the pedals/chain the rear derailler seems to be skipping, I "catches" at one point the chain completely seized up and one other the chan came off the rear cogs. I dont see any visible damage to the unit itself (its an LX) I would really appreciate if anyone out there can help me figure out a way to make it better before Sunday, Im not too mechanically inclined with my bike, but hope I can do something with this. Thanks ! AMY
