For the past couple of weeks the bike has been sounding like a pepper mill when applying any kind of torque, especially when climbing, and more so at the granny end of the back cog. For yesterdays ride it was sounding bad all the time. I was going to bring it to the LBS this morning, but decided to do a quick clean and lube before this mornings ride. Problem solved. Now I just need to bring it in and complain about the cover of the expensive seat they sold me starting to come off the seats frame.
How often do you lube a chain. I've put about 500 miles on it since I had it tuned up. It did spend one day on the car rack being driven through a heavy rain for a couple of hours.
