Re: Shifter Bike Freewheel Skipping?
First thanks to every one that replied and offered all kinds of good advice. I systematically went over the bike checking out areas pointed out. I believe it was the small chain wheel being over run. I shortened the chain 8 links, til the derailuer was at about 45 degrees forward, has very good spring tension in that position. I have since riden the bike extensively with not a single skip. Never gone that far before, so Im thinking(hopeing) that was the issue. It also shifts somewhat better with the added tension. So, if you are building a shifter with a small front ring, shorten the chain.
