    Ahhh! chainsuck!!!

    What is chainsuck and why do some bikes suffer from it more than others. The answer is not as simple as you’d think

  2. Damon says:

    Chainsuck is where the chain gets caught by the tyre as the back wheel is rotating and is pulled up between the chainstay and the tyre or gets pulled up between the chainset and the chainstay. Usually a well aligned chainset with the right clearances can avoid this
