KMC 410H chain problems
i got the chain in the mail today, cut off the extra and put it on my bike. i turn the cranks backwards with my hand and it starts making the loud popping sound every 2-3 links or so at the freewheel. i creep the wheel forward a hair and try again thinking it just wasnt lined up rigt but the sound continues. im running an odyssey 13t freewheel. the teeth look like they're fitting into the chain snuggly so it shouldnt be because the teeth or too wide or whatever(they're both 1/8").
has anyone had this problem? i might use a dremel tool to shave the sides of the teeth on the freewheel and see if that helps. any ideas?
