My 10-year-old mountain bike (Gary Fisher Tassajara) would occasionally jump a gear, especially during heavy stomping, so I bought a new chain. I also thoroughly cleaned the front and rear derailleurs, the front chain rings and rear cassette. The bike sounds a lot quieter now and in casual riding it works well enough. But on a long ride tonight (Austin's trail of lights), there were several frustrating moments when I wanted to accelerate hard and suddenly the rear derailleur popped a gear. grrrr...
I haven't looked at the bike closely since but before the ride the alignment of the rear derailleur looked correct and, as I said, the drivetrain noise was very minimal.
Is my rear cassette shot?
Thanks in advance
