Hey riders.

I just took my 06 Fuji road bike over the 6200 mile mark. I want to get some new parts and give the bike a good tune up. Lately, the chain has been slipping under heavy pedal pressure, is this a worn chain? otherwise things seems good. My tires are less than a year old and brake pads are pretty new too.

Can I get some advice on what should be replaced, changed, done to the bike now, before another big summer of riding?

Thank You!

Go to a decent local bike shop..it's what they do.

you might need a new cassette together with the new chain
