i'm wrapping up my first FG conversion. I got this because a) i wanted to actually build a bike instead of just ride one and b) i wanted an old bike to compliment my new bike before deciding which one to make a project.. something like that.
anyway, the drivetrain is all from my kilo; BB, crank, cog, lockring, wheels. the only thing that didn't work was the chain (too short) so i got a new one and threw it on. so just a couple questions. it's pretty noisy. is this something that will fade as the chain breaks in? also, does the hub sit OK in the dropouts? with another link the chain has so much slack i can just about pull it off with the wheel all the way back in the dropouts. TIA.
and some pics of it just waiting on a brake.
