After today's 60km roadrace I discover that one of the teeth on my front chainring(53T) on my SR Suntour Superbe crank had been bent inwards to the frame causing the chain to jump. My bike is a Silverback Arizona which I bought last week Tuesday. Any ideas what could have caused this I have not had a fall with the cycle
(yet)! The the big gears were only used on the flat/downhill sections. Uphill was done with 39T front chain ring.
