Holy shiznit's...Sheldon, I used your page for the instructions on changing my flat..Printed em up and had em out in the garage with me during the surgery LOL...Can't believe I'm actually conversating with you..
I agree, I should have made the subject more descriptive..thank you very much for the website and reply..invaluable for a newbie such as mebloodyself.
Masiman, you know, I did try it on the road and the noise is still there..Everything looks to be bueno as far as lining up; chain, gears, etc. I don't think it's the tire; but I was working on it so that is a distinct possiblity LOL.
It's strange to me that it only happens when the chain is in the middle of the rear sprockets..I bet Sheldon hit the nail on the head..I'm betting the derailler is out of wack/adjustment..wouldn't that affect it in all gears/sprockets though?
When I'm in the lower 2 or 3 gears it's smooth as silk..then I switch to the upper 4 gears or so, on the rear sprockets and I get the slight noise/sound.
At lunch time I did about a half hour on the trainer, and while it's not bad, it's definitely not like it was before I mucked around with it...The worse part is, it happens on the sprocket I use the most LOL..Oh well..thanks again for the replies.
