Chain skipping/jumping Cycleops Hammer

Hey there…

I just received the Cycleops Hammer package from Zwift that came with the cassette already installed. I popped my bike on there and the chain won’t seem to settle in. It skips and jumps around on the sprocket. Anybody have any ideas for a mechanically un-inclined lady? Thanks!

Also, how many gears do you have on your bike sprocket and how many are on the Hammer? They need to be the same.

Could be that your chain is ready for the dust bin, assuming it’s the right speed for whatever cassette is on the trainer… You may want to check the cassette on your wheel as well as it could be worn due to leaving the chain on past its shelf life.
