So your chain is skipping when you go into certain gears. This might not be the problem but I had a probelm with my bike, that the chain always rubbed against the derailer. This happened when i was in front 3 and rear 6 or 7. The chain is on such a diagonal to get from the back cog to the front, it rubs against the derailer. But in 2 front 4 rear its fine, because the chain is in a straight line from front to rear.
I also experience a rough feel sometimes when riding. It is from the contact with the chain and the teeth and it is a rough contact which creates an uneven feel in my feet when pedaling, traveling through the pedals. That is most likely because my bearings are bent in my front cog. Also this can be a problem if the chainrings are loose, or the cogs or crank is a bit loose, the chain wont smoothly fit in the teeth.
Not sure if any of these are the problem, but I took a look at my chain, gave it a clean and removed grim ect, and then tightend up my crank and performence and feel improved. Although my bike is not knew, 2 years old so I'm not sure why its happening to a new bike?
