hi bill that chain was a stock chain when i got the bike. and there was no noise issue at that time. only after ride for a year it started making a loud propelling noise even after lubing. i then changed both cassette and chain when i found out the chain was stretched. how with the new equip installed it seems to make even more noise. but i think i needed to ride it out a few hundred miles. so its not as loud as before. and both chains old and new were for 24 speed.
oh ok my bad
. Ever thought of checking the chain line adjustment? LBS's should carry a chain line gauge. I have one and I use it on every bike I repair.
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!
Ye 10-4 to that trev. The cassette teeth were definitely badly worn as was the chain. You can see it goes off at the 2 inch mark and stays same distance off at 12 inch the proper check.
Although new equipment did not solve problem. Its surprising it wore so quickly must be real low grade tin can metal.
It only happens when he pedals so its in the drive somewhere.Crank, and pedals are suspect too. I had a clicking noise that turned out to be my pedals hitting the frame mounted pump which shifted a bit. DUH.......
Never Give Up!!!
