in the past, when my gears started skipping, that would tell me it was time for a tune-up. I'd like to know how to perform this repair myself.
I know that the rear derailler is not bent. when skipping occurs, the gear does not change. I do not know if the skipping occurs on the rear cogs or the front rings. I can't tell when I'm riding. it only happens under load, like when I'm pedaling hard, but it is getting worse. I cannot get it to skip by rotating the crank by hand.
is this a matter of adjusting the limit stop screws, or the adjusting barrel at the end of the cable housing, or what? is it more likely to happen in the front or rear? I can't tell.
keep in mind that this is the same problem that I always have every few months or so. any advice would be greatly appreciated. thanks.
