    I get that from time to time as well with the commuter, same circumstances. I just squirt a load of lube at the chain and that seems to help. Can’t decide what’s causing it, there’s no slipping or anything.

    Have you tried it the other way round (pushing up)? Nothing to loose surely?

    Tried a different (less worn) ring?

    Blurb on the on one site says it could push up but they haven’t found a suitable spring

    Coffeeking, the big ring isn’t too worn. I spent most of my time mincing around in the granny or middle ring 😆

    Probably too late for my 2p worth. I am not a SS afficinado (hills too steep where I live) but I have had innumerable drive chain issues. I had some serious crunching noises and slipping on my front chainring. The bike shop saw no appreciable wear and the chain was pretty new too. Swapped the ring for a (new) cheap and cheerful Deore ring and problem solved. Can’t explain it, but it worked. Must get “rogue” dodgy chainrings from time to time.

    Oh aye, forgot to say I (innadvertantly) managed to solve it 😆

    I was messing about with the tensioner. The spring original went through one of the holes in the tensioner

    I had pulled the spring out the hole and had a fiddle but when I replaced it I put it over the top rather than through the hole. This put a bit more tension in the spring which in turn put a bit more tension in the chain and I haven’t had any problems since 🙂
