    Default chain falls off under force

    Chain is in the top ring and when I mash (not that hard even) it pops! off of the ring. I adjusted the FD and its doesnt work. I am sure this is an easy fix with the knowledge.

    Falls to the outside?
    How did you adjust the FD? Is it in the proper orientation as in angle and height above the chainring, and did you also adjust the limit screw?

    That's what I was thinking. I just replaced a ring that was acting a bit funny. Dropping the chain at odd times and making a wee bit of noise. Closer inspection revealed a couple bent teeth. All the problems disappeared with a new ring.

    Falls to the outside?
    Falls on the inside

    How did you adjust the FD?
    adjusted the screw limit and tighten the cable at varying degrees and replaced to chain.

    Is it in the proper orientation as in angle and height above the chainring,
    I have not adjust either for over a year with no issues. It started acting up ever since I cleaned my chain a week ago. There no signs of movement.

    and did you also adjust the limit screw?
    yes.

    Well it served you.

    FWIIW I take it you ride in the gnar. The rings are not going to last nearly as long were you riding clean roads. The Shimano stuff is good but it's not nearly has durable as say a TA which might get you another season riding in NFS-worthy conditions.

    I replaced a cassette last month...and the rings, and the chain. It was all toast - too many miles, not enough lube.

    Back in 10 speed days using Miche and Veloce cassettes. But only because individual cogs were not readily available. Most wear on the middle 3 cogs.

    Ditto for me (but with 9 and 10, and I'm holding at 10). Just say no to Veloce cassettes. Too soft. Chorus or Centaur is now as low as I'll go.
