I have a recently purchased a 1993 Nishiki Meridian, about 1-2 weeks ago, and have been riding it frequently. Since I am pretty new to cycling I don't know too much about specifics, so here is what I could find on the internet about the bike, http://www.airfreetires.com/Specs/St...dian&Year=1993 . Anyways everything was running fine until about 2 days ago.
Now heres the problem. When trying to coast my chain tends to get loose and I have no clue what has been the problem. Aside from when coasting when I try to back pedal the chain also gets loose. When it gets loose and I try to pedal again, it takes awhile for the chain to get back into place so I can get moving again. Basically it takes about 2-5 revolution to get it back going again. Since the problem, I have looked at my bike to see any problem I could find. From, what I saw it looked as if the rear derailleur wouldn't pull any slack made fast enough.
So does anyone know what the problem could be? If you guys need any pictures or what not I can try to take some. Thanks in advanced!
