In addition to improperly tuned derailleurs, drivetrain slippage may also be caused by a worn chain or cassette. Worn Chain: One way to check whether the chain is worn is to use a chain wear indicator. They're cheap and easy to carry with you, but if you'd rather not buy one and if the rental place has a repair shop, you could ask to either borrow theirs ...

In short, no. There are two main problems: Your bike does not have disc brake tabs. Your bike does not have a derailleur hanger. To be fair, it could be done, it would just be so expensive that you'd be better off buying a completely new bike with gears and disc brakes. If you chose to pursue this project, you would need: a new fork with disc brake ...

I think you could do this with a continuously variable transmission and some way to measure the load. You could DIY some pedals to measure with how much force the rider is pushing. The pedals would probably have to wirelessly transmit the data to a microcontroller so that you could adjust the gear ratio, since there isn't really a good way to run wires from ...

I don't believe such a device currently exists that you can mount on a bicycle, but there are devices that have characteristics similar to what you seek that you can mount a bicycle onto. They are specific types of bicycle trainers. The explanation is a bit long but if you understand how trainers work and how they compare to the work you do to move your bike ...

It could be done but would be expensive because you'd need torque sensing cranks. These exist for power monitoring but are priced as a tool for serious athletes. They would give you cadence as well. Then you'd need electronic shifting - also expensive. The actual control could be implemented in any microcontroller of your choice, but you'd need to consider ...

Shimano's Alfine Di2 electronic shifting system for hybrids has some ability to shift automatically, although I don't know if it is load adjustable.

So you broke the 24T cog in the middle of the cassette? If that is the case i don't think it will be repairable. You may check with Sram Warranty though dependent on circumstance. I have had good luck with their warranty program in the past. My reasoning for saying that it is not repairable is that on the XX1 cassettes, the cluster is machined from one ...

It could be possible that the cogs and chainset are too far out of line. You might need a different bottom bracket. I had similar problems converting a ladies Raleigh Richmond to 21 speed. A new bb solved it
