Chain pop noise
So I have a soma juice that I ride moutain bike trails on. I have a woodman SS cassette hub and some hollowtech II LX cranks with a surly ring in the middle and a (****ty) wipperman chain. I use a tugnut on the drive side and it's QR.
My problem is that whenever I hit the trails I get a loud pop a 4 or 5 times out of every ride. Just a noise, chain stays on. I've never had a problem with the chain falling, but this chain does have like a million dead links in it now. I'm exagerating, but it does probably have about 5-7 dead links. Atleast it did last I checked. So I'm wondering if it would be chainline, or because I'm using a 1/8 chain on 3/32 stuff or what? I am pretty sure I measured my chainline when I set it up, but I haven't checked it since. I do plan on doing that, but I figured I'd petition you guys first to see if any of you had had a similar problem and knew how to remedy it. Thanks.
