I have a 2000 Specialized Enduro Elite 3 x 9 gearing, LK FD & XTR SGS RD.
With the chain on the largest chain wheel & the 6th largest cog the chain skips over some the tension pulleys teeth.
I've checked and the RD is not bent. The Pulleys are in line with one another as they should be. I do not have a stiff chain link.
When the chain line is more straight the chain rolls smoothly over all of the tension pulleys teeth and does not skip over teeth and then Jump back in line.
I've change chains and the problem has lessened, which makes me think I have a chain issue. The tension pulley spins freely
I would like to fix this issue if possible before installing my new chain.
All help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
