    Installed a new chain

    I'll probably post this on the mechanic's forum as well. I put a new chain on my bike the day before yesterday and when I went riding yesterday it felt like I had a little road buzz. I checked to make sure everything was lined up, but didn't, or couldn't, find anything wrong. Does anybody have a clue what this could be. I feel more when I'm putting more pressure on the pedals. Thanks for any help or suggestions.

    I hate to say this, but I've done it myself...

    Did you miss the routing through the derailluer at all?

    +1 Check this. Is it possible that your chainrings and rear gears are too worn and don't mesh with the new chain? How many miles did you run the old chain?
    Oh I used to be disgusted and now I try to be amused. But since their wings have got rusted, you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes. But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain, that's when I knew that I could not refuse. And I won't get any older, now the angels wanna wear my red shoes.

    I use the Park tool about every week and I had 1500 miles on the chain and it showed bad. The week before it was good, so I got it in time. I was just outside playing with it again and I think it's the pedals. I never did lube them and they are the Shimano 520s, so I'm going to check that in a few minutes. I put a chain on the Trek after 1200 miles, and I feel I get more milage with the Sram. I screwed up with my wifes bike and waited to long (2600 miles) and had to change the chain and the cassette, oh well. Thanks for the replys.
