These jobs are easy for anyone interested in cycling. You only require standard tools such as Allen keys, pliers or screw drivers. In this category you’ll find all basic adjustments for your bike.

When shifting between the front the can sometimes get jammed on the teeth causing it to get stuck between crank and chainstay. This is called ‘chain suck’ and occurs mainly when shifting down onto the two smallest chain rings.

The cause may be bent teeth on your chainrings or an incorrectly adjusted front derailleur.

However, this is mainly the result of worn chainrings – most often because an edge has formed and when shifting the chain gets stuck causing the chain to get jammed between chainstay and crank.

If the chain is completely wedged in between crank and chainstay, then you’ll need to take off the crank to free it.

Hint: Check chain wear and regularly and replace chain and all other parts of the drivetrain if they are worn out
