Hi all, was recently riding when i heard a loud clunk, i checked all my spokes etc. and nothing was wrong, then I found that my bike was constantly changing between two gears and now the chain is unable to reach the largest gear ring, how do I fix this, before i break something els!?!

    Sounds like your rear mech needs simple adjustment. Follow the instructions on this link and you'll be back to smooth shifting in no time.

    chech the mech hanger for alignment.

    something could hit/caught the mech (the chain could have caused some movement in it).

    but your problem sounds like a hanger problem if the stop screws are ok and if the tension in the cable is ok.
