I recently purchased a brand new KHS touring bike here in Taiwan from a local shop that speaks a little bit of English.
Beautiful bike, and I love it to death, but.....
When I am in the 7th gear (of 9) on my rear cassette I can feel a jolt through the pedals (slight, but regular and quite irritating) every time the pedals are parallel to the ground. I've taken a look at the rear cassette and everything seems in order. I'm trying to figure out how to explain it to the bike shop guy (his English is exceptional, but some things are still lost in translation). Any ideas what the problem might be, or what direction I should point him in?
The entire drivetrain is Shimano Deore from cranks on through, if that helps at all. I've taken it to two other guys but they didn't do much. Either they didn't notice it or they thought it was perfectly acceptable. However, when I only get it on one gear, regardless of the front cassette, I tend to get a little concerned.
Thanks in advance,
