If you're downshifting into 2nd to lay the power down it's most likely your rear wheel locking.

However, if you're upshifting into second, or just giving it hell in second, your front sprocket may be worn down, and the chain will "jump" and you'll feel and hear the sprocket spin from underneath the chain. Check the condition of the teeth on the front sprocket.

-keep the rubber side down[}:)]
