Rear cassette self destructing?!?
Hello and thank you all for this awesome site. I currently have a trek 7.2 which I love, but I also have a Next Avalon which has been holding up pretty good for a beater. So here's my question. I took my avalon for a ride yesterday and about ten miles in I heard this awful clack clunking coming from the drivetrain. I stopped and found the threaded part that holds the rear cassette together had come loose, so I tightened it by hand and continued carefully home. When I got home I dismantled it and reassembled it with proper hand tools and tightened the cassette holder. Then on my morning ride it started the same noise again...
any ideas what is going on here?
p.s. it has 7 speeds shimano rear deraileur well oiled chain
and my apologies for a question involving a next bike....
