    Hello all. Perhaps someone could advise me how to sort my bike out.

    It's got a Shimano 27 gear XT chain set & since new I've had a problem with the chain wrapping
    itself around the middle chain ring. I've had it replaced (after it bent due to chain suck) but it's
    still happening. My bike shop just serviced the bike and said it was probably just a lubrication
    thing, alas it still occurs.

    Any ideas? Change the chain... ??

    Cheers,

    Z

    Replacing a chainring or cassette without changing the chain is a Bad Thing(TM). Have a look here
    for a bit more info:
