Hi basketball,
-If the chain IS on a sprocket at the rear, and it just spins around, this means the ratchet pawls inside the cartridge are stuck or broken. If it's a really expensive one it may be worth fixing. On the other hand if your bike has seen a lot of hard riding, the cogs will be worn anyway, -get a new cartridge, it's worth it. Cost about 60-70 for a new one.
