    Cheers @Tijs just had a look and your right about that locating tab on the inner chainring isn't under the crank arm so can shuffle that round...Having a google now but is there a similar marking on the outer chainring so both rings line up?

    Cheers for the reply @dubtap The bike was new but around 6 months old now (He had a few slips while learning clipless pedals)....Did think the BB axle looked on the long side but assumed as it came fitted to the bike would be correct....Looking at it the chainset has holes for a 3rd smaller chainring so could the longer axle be to accommodate an extra chainring if it was being run as a triple?

    No worries @Tijs original FSA ring did not have markings on but had pin on the correct side....Chainring has been replaced by Shimano 105.

    Not sure if this will post as well but here is a video showing the chain not quite catching on the chainring...This is with a brand new chain and chainring.

    Hey Gang,

    Can someone help solve this issue that has left me and my LBS stumped.

    My brother is just getting back in cycling and has just bought a new Cannondale Caad with Sora groupset.

    There seems to be an issue when shifting into the big chainring where the chain doesn't always land on the chainring and the chain hovers on the teeth before catching then has a tendency to intermittently jam between the chainring and the front mech and get "proper" stuck.

    I've attached an image of it getting stuck below with the original chain.

    Bikes been looked at by the shop he purchased from and my LBS and have not managed to solve the issue. I've now replaced the chain and chainrings to see if that would help and still seems to happen.

    Here's what I've also checked
    -BB axle doesn't seem to have play in it
    -Chain is not stiff on any links

    Any advice on anything else to try would be much appreciated trying to encourage him to get out on the bike and constant mechanicals aren't helping, or am I expecting too much from a fairly basic setup.

    Just to round this off just spoken to Fizik and the saddle is in fact a custom Arione K:1 (Model 7714 A00003 for any Fizik-aficionados of the group). They couldn't give me any more information on the custom order details due to privacy however there we have it. Anyone interested in taking it off my hands?
