    Bad Boy Chain noisy

    I have a Bad Boy Disc, less than two months old. The chain is starting to make a really loud noise. I already put lubricant on there, but doesn't change. I noticed especially when I shift onto the outermost crank the noise becomes worse. Any idea what to do there? This wasn't as noisy when I bought it.

    You need to clean the chain as well as lube it. Some lubes do both, like Rock N Roll Gold.

    Squirt it on and then wipe the chain for as long as you want. You should end up with a clean shiny quiet chain.

    There are many thoughts on how to clean and lube chains. I like the simplicity of my squirt on, wipe off method.
