    Rear axle/chain issues

    I was riding to work yesterday and the wendigo rear axle came loose and slipped the nut area that it screws into on the frame. Nothing catastrophic . I was able to rethread the axle and head the last block to work. No observable damage, but the ride home and the ride in this morning, the chain has been consistently slipping every 8-20 pedal rotations. I am due for a pre-paid tune-up from performance, but thought I would check here to see if there were any thoughts on it.

    probably bent the derailleur hanger a little bit. The LBS should be able to fix it with a simple alignment tool. Lot of possibilities with the derailure. Could be a simple adjustment of the shifter barrel end would fix it.
