    I took my 01' Marin Rocksprings into the shop, i got a new left crank arm and front derailluer, they were installed and purchased altogether for about 60 bux, is that good?, also, now i've been having a problem with the chain skipping when like, you have it in a high gear going down a sweet dh section and all of a sudden you need to power up a hill and your in a high gear, the chain will skip on me and cause me to lose control and have to put my feet down..., is there anyway to fix this?? help!!!

    Putting a new chain on worn cassettes and chainrings will cause the skipping.

    Have you done that lately?

    or on that model of rock springs, the suspension is a single pivot. It is possible your shop is adjusting the front der. with no sag on it, causing it to skip when sag is on it. What i do when working on that bike is to take the shock out, and compress the supesnsion half way, and set the drive train up like that.
