Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

is you serious????? god damn... you shouldn't be allowed to spend $70 on a chain unless you have %70 or more of the intelligence of a ****ing fly, and by that standard you sir don't deserve that chain or those parts....

P.S. use the search function or google and look into chain maintance

+1

That noise is your bike telling you not to use lube, or clean your 70 dollar chain.

NJS chains actually have oil that's been injected into tiny little pores you can't see in the metal; the noise is the oil being released and doing it's job.
