    Fixing chain noise. My experience.

    I have a Bianchi Pista and have always had a little chain noise. It worried me a little at first, but nothing bad ever happened. I had the frame painted recently, so I took the whole thing apart. Last night I put it back together and to my amazement, now it is perfectly silent. So if you need to fix chain noise, take the whole bike apart, paint the frame, then put it back together yourself.

    Chain noise

    I have found that buying a new frame will cure chain noise, also.

    What don't you understand?

    a lot of people use wax lube which makes your chain MAD noisy. use dry lube!!

    Wouldn't it be much easier to just paint the chain?....

    Damn. Now you tell me. Think of the money I could have saved. I wonder if I can still cancel the order for that Carbon Fiber chain?
