    Chain Slippage

    Hello,
    It appears my chain (I'm assuming) slightly slips every 2 1/2 rotations. After these rotations, half of a motion is wasted and then is locks back in again and I can resume pedalling for another 2 1/2... Any suggestions on what may be causing this? My local bike guys are a friggin' rip-off...

    Sounds like a stiff link. Every 2-1/2 crank rotations is once around the entire chain. Turn the pedals backwards slowly and watch where the chain exits the bottom pulley of the rear derailleur. The stiff link should be very apparent.
