Slipping, help!

so im running a 3/32 chainring, with an 1/8 chain, and ive read alot on these forums that no ones had problems, but i think this is why i may be slipping? what happens is, when im at the height of my rotation my pedals slip, i think its missing the chain, because even though my bike is a fixed gear, its not rotating the wheel and just having me painfully slip onto my bar. does anyone know what the problem may be, or would it be because of the chain/chainring.

That is what it sounds like, if the cog keeps slipping forward, it def. is stripped.

Well it may not be stripped just yet, all you have to do is tighten your lockring. Or just flip your wheel if it's fixed on both sides and just move the cog and lockring over.

mash the pedals up a hill to tighten the cog. bring your lockring spanner and tighten it at the top (lockring tightens by spinning left). dont skid or pedal back at the top as you want the cog tight.

make sure all the threads are greased too
