    chainsuck very frustrating on XT chainrings

    im getting pretty severe chainsuck on my shimano xt chainrings. yes, this is a NEW chainring and a very new cassette. the crank is a XT crankset, XT cassette, XT 9spd chain, XT shifters, both XT derauillers and its getting sucked in.

    it happens when im in the second largest chainring, when i pedal hard, or torque the crank hard. basically when i put lots of pressure on it, it gets stuck. i looked closely and it looks like it got stuck inbetween the middle chainring and the largest chainring. i dont know how just pushing hard can push the chain from the middle chainring into the gap of the two.

    im guessing it might not be the initial problem. it could be that the chain got stuck on the ring, crashed into the chainstay and then popped off into the gap. but thats a stretch as well. its just too weird.

    but ill take photos later in case that helps. im getting REALLY frustrated, and i just had both derauillers adjusted in a bike shop earlier today, so i know its not those problems.
