I am getting chain skipping when taking off from a stop or steep climbing. Entire drive train is 9-speed 105 triple. I plead guilty to not replacing my chain soon enough, but have since replaced both the chain and cassette. (It started skipping before the replacement.) The new chain was shortened per Shimano recommendations for length. The chain rings all look fine, and the skip will occur on any ring.
Could the rear derailleur be the culprit? It seems like there would be no real force on the pulleys, and it appears to be okay, well aligned, no excessive play.... It does not jump gears. I have adjusted the B-tension screw this way and that, but no difference. I even tried putting an identical wheel on temporarily, but it still skips. Any ideas out there? Thanks.
