lol new record
Girlfriends Stripper is pretty much complete; one problem I want some help with:
I think I'm forgetting SOMETHING because the chain makes a lot of noises, and in one certain area, there's a little "bump" in the chain while the cranks are spinning. At first I noticed the wheel was a bit crooked to one side, but I corrected it. A little better, but it's still there and louder than I expect it to be.. Any ideas?

When you join the chain back together after shortening, it usually always produces a stiff link. There should be another shelf on your chain tool (the one you don't use when pushing a pin in or out) for remedying this. All you need is about an eighth of a turn, if that. Or - you could just find the stiff link, put both of your thumbs on it and give it a push sideways to free it up (but don't go snapping the chain in half, you damn animal).
Tell me about it, haha. I remember joining the links at one of the ones with a "Z" on it, so I broke it apart, moved em up and down, left and right a bit, and they all seemed fine. Joined it back, checked if it was stiff, and used that part of the chain tool on it. Seemed fine.
I gave it a quick spin, and it seemed okay, but then I'd see that slight "bump" again. WEIRD!
