    Was riding all day then went for a pretty hardcore downhill with some big rocks. Im on a hardtail. So after i get to the bottom my chain if popped. I shift and the chain slips back on. Every 5 revolutions or so the crank feels as though if it skips a tooth. I went through all the gears and it does it in every one. i have a few worn down teeth but theyve been like that for a while. It seems as though something got bent on the downhill. What should i look for to pinpoint the problem?

    Sounds like a tight link in your chain

    Turn the pedals backwards and find the tight link by looking for where it skips.
