Everything is adjusted

Some times, not always, when I coast and I'm ready to start pedaling and it seems to slip a tooth and it seems to be in back. New chain and cassette, cable adjusted and I still get it once in a while. Would anybody have any ideas, thanks for any replys.

Are you running friction shifting, or indexed? Is the derailleur hanger perfectly straight? Random thoughts...

Check for a tight link in the chain, could be where the new chain was joined.

This also happens to me.

I'm going to advance a possible explanation here........sometime when you were coasting you backpedaled and there was a bit of road shock that derailed the chain from the cog where it was supposed to be. Upon starting your pedaling again, the chain had to jump back to the originally chosen cog.

Sound feasible, George?

It could be the freehub body not latching up properly. Does the bike do any ghost pedaling when you push the bike along? Just had one of these this weekend. The freehub was toast, swapped that out with a fresh set of bearing for the axle and everything was fine.

Just a thought.

No it wasn't that either and it's not the free hub. It looks like I'll have to live with it though. I'm going slow when it happens so I shouldn't hurt anything, but it feels like it slips a couple of teeth when it does happen. I'll have to watch close and see what's going on, thanks again for the replys.
