Whoops sorry how did they happen. Hello, would be grateful if you have any ideas why my chain falls off regularly, it's a recent problem, usually changing to small front ring (easy gear, think it's called that). Not a clue what to do, bike maintenance so far is limited to sorting flat tyres. Chain's done about 5000 miles. If I remember & change about mid-range of rear cog, it's less likely to happen...

Adjust the lower limit screw on the front mech so the mech can't travel as far to towards the frame
