I got a relatively new bike and I noticed the chain skips occasionally when starting up (from a traffic light stop) or when skidding (more often when I try to skid to the least comfortable side, I'm not an ambidextrous skidder but trying to learn).
I cleaned my chain thoroughly and tensioned it, there is a tiny bit of play but it is tight at the tightest spot and still get occasional skipping.
Could someone please help me diagnose the problem?
Using Alpine chainring and cog 47/17 and Izumi super tough chain. I got a parktool chain checker and the chain has not stretched.
