My good friend just moved back into town with a SS conversion he picked up in Madison, WI. He doesn't know much about bike mechanics, but I know even less. Yesterday he wrecked the bike because the chain slipped off the cogs, which he told me happened alot when he pushed hard on the pedals (chain slip, not wrecking
). Should this be happening at all? Did he pick up a crappy conversion or what? Can he just do a simple adjustment and be fine thereafter, or should he take the bike to our trusty LBS? Neither of us have much experience with Fixies, or Single Speeds, so we really have no basis for knowing how simple, common, or odd this might be. TIA
