  1. Hi Guys To cut a long story short, My bike had to have repairs done abroad whilst on a little
    holiday, and the job wasn't great. I had a new cassette and front ring set put on, and a new chain.
    Now I get 1 skip per 50 turns on a certain gearing, but i think it could be down to the pure shite
    for a chain that is now on. I have a decent chain now, but do not know how many links it should have
    ( I dont think the shop checked, and just threw on some rubbish). Any help aprreciated: Model
    Schwinn Rocket stage 3: year 2001

    thanks

    Dave

    I have a 2001 stage 3 as well and it would ghost shift sometimes when I was down around the 4th and
    5th cog on the cassette. They come with the chain a little long. I cut the links down to 113 which
    got rid of the chain rub in the granny gear combo. Also my cables where cut a little short which
    caused some ghost shifting when the suspension was moving. I found going with a slightly longer
    cable housing for the rear derailluer between the rear and front triangles helped. Also changing
    the cables out often helps. Doing pretty much cut it ghost shifting out all together.
