Slip when I pedal hard

  • I have noticed that when I accelerate hard by pedaling (doesn't mater if I'm using the assist or not) I hear/feel what can best be described as a slip coming from the crankshaft area (where the pedals pass through the frame). It makes a Chonk sound but I don't notice anything while pedaling normally. Wondering if others have this issue? I'm a big guy so I can generate a lot of torque. Just want to get this taken care of before a small issue becomes a big issue.

  • Borrow an 8mm allen key and make sure the cranks are fully tightened onto bottom bracket. A few on here have had issues with them not being fully tightened from factory . Think that is fixed now but get it checked out to avoid problems down the line.
