    I am just starting out with cycling, so I do not much about mechanics as of yet, nor do I know the right terminology (so please excuse my desriptions). So my question is....

    This past monday I purchased a Giant OCR2 with TruVativ Touro, 30/42/52 cranks. I am having a problem with the 2nd largest rear crank slipping. The chain does not stay on the crank and slips constantly between the 2nd and 3rd largest.

    Can anyone help he out. Thanks in Advance.

    I suggest a trip back to your dealer.
    It could be a number of things from your experience with shifting, ajustment, mechanical difficulties, etc.

    Read your Owners Manual for the first step of learning.

    Thanks for the help, I figured I would need to take it back, but I wanted to wait until my 30 day check up.

    Any other thoughts?
