waffled on about something:
>Sounds like a synchronizer going out allowing it to slip out of gear.
IIRC the synchronizer or synchromesh purely aligns the teeth to allow
a smooth transition. Once the drive gear is engaged it plays no
further part until the next gear change.
If the synchromesh is worn, you'll get a grinding gear change from
teeth not messing as you try to select a new gear.
Jumping out of gear under load either means you've been grinding too
many teeth and have now damaged the gears, or your selector
fork/linkage has become damaged and isn't pushing the drive gear fully
