Ordered two downtube novas last week and they arrived today. White setting them up, I noticed one of them had a really noisy derailleur.
After trying to adjust the high and low limits and cable tension to no avail, I started comparing the two bikes, and noticed the derailleur on one of them was a little crooked.
I've emailed Yan about this, and am waiting for his response, but I wanted to see if anyone has any suggestions.
Note: It *will* shift into all of the gears, but the bent one is significantly more noisy than the other one--there is a periodic sound like it's getting ready to shift gears, but doesn't. Is it going to damage anything if I ride it like this?
