View Full Version : Chinky gears

08-12-2005, 01:33 PM
When out riding some of my gears seem to be noisier then others. They make a sort of chink, chink sound and I can't work out why. When I turn the bike upside down to have look I can't work out where it's coming from. Am I just being paranoid about my new bike or do I need to do some of that scary deraillier adjustment type thing? :eek:

what type of shifters are you using? Is it the front gears or the back gears?? you could try 1/2 shifting to see if it "seats" the chain better in the gear. it's called "feathering" the gears and it just means you don't shift as hard as you would to change the gears. make sense? (it does in my head but that doesn't always Mean anything!)

Its probably the deraillier... get your LBS to check it out if you don't want to do it
