    Sprocket hop?

    I have about a half inch hop (change from closest to farthest distance from frame). I have a Felt Trail 9. What sprocket should I upgrade to or is this easy to fix?

    Have been training for a race and doing a lot of sprints and burst drills.. guess too much torque?

    Any recommendations?

    Rear or front.....

    BTW, rear is called a cassette. Front is called a chain ring.

    Which chain ring is bent? The granny (small), middle or big ring? You'll just have to replace the chain ring that is bent. What crankset are you running?
