Chain

I am about to buy what is described as KMC Unisex's X10 Chain, Grey, 114 Link .

What does the 'Unisex' mean? Is it really any different to a basic X10?

It doesn't happen when I get off and spin the wheel.

Any ideas...

Got a set from Amazon - worked out well although I had to get a muscle man to move the wrench. I managed to true the wheel with some nifty improvisation.

Chainring switching

Hello comrades!

On switching between chainrings, I can go to 2 and 3 in the normal way.

However, if I'm on 3 and I want to go to 2 - I must go straight to 1 and up to 2 again.

Help!
