    Jamis XC Chain Problem

    Hey Yall

    I recently purchased a Jamis Dakar XC and have been riding it for about three weeks not. Last week I took the chain off and cleaned it up. But since then I have noticed that that Chain seems to slip some how. I'll be pedaling and all of a sudden it will feel as if it wants to change gears. I'm relatively new to the whole MTB thing so any knowledge would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Steve

    Thanks for the input I believe it was the chain after taking it off and inspecting it I had 2 links that were really tight. I loosened those up and hopefully now I'll be good to go.

    About the tags, I'm kinda a noob here so I dont really know how things work... figured tags would help if someone was searching if they had a similar problem?
