Too much crank rotation until rear cog set engages
my rear cog set is turning too much after coasting. almost half a rotation on the lowest gear till it engages- close to correct in highest gear.
I've been playing around with different chain rings- The one I am using now is from a 5 speed and I am running a 7 rear cog set. The teeth on the current ring are in a different position\ if you line up the bolt holes, the hills\valley are in opposition. I don't see this causing this slipping of my rear, but it might play with the chain tension.
Any ideas on the cause? and it's a cassette in shimano deore.
I'll put on different chairings and see if it alters, thanks.j
