    Sometimes, that chain is in there and it's not going to come out. It happened to me on a ride and a part time bike mechanic stopped to help me and even HE had issues pulling it free. It turns out in my instance the FD was a little askew causing shifting issues and blocking me from pulling the chain up once it dropped off. This is my only bike that's NOT 1x...

    Just take it to the shop and ask them to show you what to do. Most shops are pretty cool and want their customers to learn how to do basic trailside fixes.

It wasn't until 1x and clutch derailleurs became commonplace when I went back to gears. That, and achey knees

    Streetsmarts, the solution is to go fixie.

    I vote go to Bike Shop. It shouldn't keep happening. Explain that it keeps happening, and see if they can find an issue. Ask if you can watch what they do to fix/adjust, or ask them to explain how they did it. Then you are still learning, learning!

In the old days when I had a FD, most of the time I could get the chain back on while still riding.
    This is true. You have to grab the chain (or use a stick) if it does fall off. I have had my chain fall off when I was using a clutch mtb X9 rear derailleur, but so far I have never experienced a chain falling off with the Rival 1 RD -- but this is with a clutch rear derailleur and a narrow-wide ring and a 1x-specific chain, so definitely doing everything "by the book" there.

    thank you all so much. I got up early and turned the bike upside down, gave it some slack by pushing on the back derailleur, and after much grease and untangling and pulling... got the chain straightened out and back on. woo hoo.

    then I tried various gears and the chain is rubbing on the hangar. I might take it to bike shop for adjusting and learning... and then clean It well this weekend.
