    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.

    that's probably exactly what it is, cause i just swapped to a new cog a couple days ago. I hope i didn't strip anything out...

    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.
