Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

HELP! something's slipping...

i was doing some skids tonight, then all the sudden felt something slip when I pedaled the crank forward. I dont know if it's my crank, bb, or rear cog. Anyone dealt with this before?

After you did your full maintenance check I bet you noticed that you could turn your hub's lock ring in tighter. If not, you should do a maintenance check.

Cog/Lockring is loose



You probably don't know **** about maintaining bikes if this is happening and especially if you don't know what it is, so go to a bike shop and ask them to give your bike a good once over.

Well if you did it yourself you surely have the proper tools.

Grease the cog and lockring a bit, jack the cog down and then get that lock ring..

Try and be more meticulous next time I guess when installing such important parts.
