- Slipping chain??
My sons Whyte 629 has a slipping chain. I’ve recently changed the cassette, chain and rear deraillier. Seems to be only slipping on the outer chainring. Looking at it I think the outer chainring is worn and causing the slip.
What do you all think?

Jesus christ dude, that is not only extremely worn but extremely lethal, looks sharper than half of my saws.Posted 7 months ago
That could slice open a femural artery with ease in a crash.
If you’ve done everything else and your doing the outer you might as well change the granny as wellPosted 7 months ago

Just look at the difference between the inner and outer chainring teeth!Posted 7 months ago
Will the cranks need removing to change the outer ring?Posted 7 months ago
With that amount of wear -May need a new chain and cassette too !Posted 7 months ago
It looks like he’s never used the granny ring!Posted 7 months ago
Yeah you’ll need to remove the cranks to change the chainring, but it’s gxp so you’ll only need an 8mm Allen key.

I can always get my ring off without removing my crank, it’s always worth trying first, then again if its been a while, a good inspection and re grease wouldn’t hurt.Posted 7 months ago
