    Klein Palomino - Jumping Chain

    Anyone else ride a 2003 Klein Palomino and have a problem with the chain jumping up and running along the rear swingarm?

    Apart from wearing away the paint etc... can be annoying when it jams solid!

    oh, & I dont think my chain ring is bent... seems to happen on rough ground or high cadence...

    Check for a bent chain link. Also, you might want to double check your chain length. If you can shorten the chain by a link it'll increase the tension on the rear derailleur spring and may lessen the degree of chain slap.

    Thanks for that!
