Geisha Lite
« on: November 12, 2009, 02:35:42 AM »
I had my geisha and i rode it a little and i notice that as i pedal,  one area of my pedaling has no tension, feels kinda like a gap. Does anyone know why?


Thanks

No, i know what slack is, but its on specific part that has "no" tension


like lets say im pedaling non stop, at each rotation there is one specific part that has no or alot less tension.

1: Tight spot in chain/pin pulling loose
2: Bad chain alignment
3:Crank arm is "one spline off"
4: No tube spacer in your BB

Chain and rear hub issues, just as frustrating as dialing brakes.  ur sprocket could be out of alignment with your driver or you could have a chain with some tight spots.
