Simple diagnostic trick for chain noises.
Once or twice per pedal revolution, it's crank or chainring related.
2-4 times per pedal revolution, depending on gear (53/13 = roughly 4), it's in the wheel.
once every 3-4 pedal revolutions, it's someplace in the chain.
If you learn to speak bike, your bike will tell you where the problem is.
An ounce of diagnosis is worth a pound of cure.
