    Converted to 1x9, gears slip

    So I converted to 1x9 on my Pugsley and now my gears are slipping. This is a used Pug and I never rode it before the conversion. I put on a 34T Race Face ring. The gears are pretty gunked up but I've only been on one test ride.

    slipping in front or the back?
    if the chain is worn out/ has stretched, it will not fit anymore on the nice and new front ring, hence the skipping.

    if skipping in the back, either cassette is worn or maybe you need to tweak the derailleur cable tension, as it is stuck between 2 gear.
    .

    my 2c.

    If it's used, there's a good chance you just need a new chain and cassette.
    Measure the chain for stretch. Check derailleur hanger for straightness, and make sure rd is adjusted properly.

    I have a Raceface 36T narrow/wide on mine and it's been perfect so far. It was a little loud at first, checked the chain and replaced it, perfect since then.

    My bad guys it's slipping out back! First time I've had this happen after converting to a 1x setup.

    Measure your chain with a ruler.
    Pin to pin at the 12" mark. A new chain is perfectly 12". If your chain is 12+1/8" or longer it is worn & needs to be replaced. Good chance the cassette is also worn.

    Pics of cassette would help too.

    New chain, new cassette. Either one is worn bad enough to have probably caused wear to the other than both will need replaced.

    Most likely the chain was allowed to go too long and has worn out the cassette.
    Oh noes. I'm going to drink the Kool-Aid.

    Is the B-screw adjusted properly? In first gear, I back off on the screw until I get interference, and tighten it 1/4 turn.

    I would replace the derailleur Hanger just as Shark suggested if it is not the chain length or the B-screw, the derailleur hanger can be twisted and it is hard to see but will cause your chain to jump.

    ????

    The RAD Cage kit includes the outer cage and a new mounting screw since you’ll use the original to bolt the pulley to its new location.
