Rear derailleur problem or is it something else?
Hey everyone, I just noticed this problem at the very end of my Sunday ride yesterday. I had a tune up a few weeks ago, so I’m sort of frustrated about new problems emerging.
I have a Bianchi Brava 8 speed with Sora components and if I rotate my crack backwards the chain gets extremely slack and rubs against the chainstay. I also noticed that if I run my pedals forwards they keep moving for a few revolutions instead of freewheeling.
So my question is, is this a derailleur problem – maybe with the spring – or is this a wheel/hub problem?
Any ideas? I’m trying to anticipate if this is going to take a major chunk out of my wallet this month.
Thanks a lot.
