    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?

    Components:
    Stock Kilo Pro bb
    Stock Kilo Pro crankset (Sugino RD2) + stock 48t chainring (only about 40 miles on it)
    new KMC Z410 chain
    Retrogression 18t cog

    Don't tell people to **** off for criticizing if all you do is criticize other people's bikes. It's like a fat cat making fun of another fat cat for being fat.

    I lurk now because all these pettiness is too petty. No thanks.

    But I miss you Vic!

    calv - do you have a stiff link in your chain or is it too tight?

    I've found that Z410s are often a little loud when they're brand spanking new. If that's the issue, a day of riding will fix it.

    Well, other then the one link I broke off to get it to the right size, the chain has been untouched. I'll check right now. But no, the chain isn't too tight, there's a good amount of slack.

    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!

    Really weird. I'm sure if you has a bent tooth on your chainring or whatever, you'd notice it.

    Those chains are crap. Just get a good chain, like a Whitestar.

    Can it really be just the chain, even though it's brand new that's causing my problems?

    I have a K410 on my 722 that's probably the quietest chain I've ever used. No problems here.

    KMC uses a different process in manufacturing their chains. Instead of the inner link having a bushing, the link plates are just stamped inward to form a roller support and the inner link relies on the pin and outer link plates to hold it together. When you break the chain, the inner link just falls apart. This construction method means that a stiff link can occur if the chain is not reconnected very precisely or the stamping is a little off on a particular link. I've also observed that these chains do not wear evenly and that the distance between links varies throughout the chain. I therefore prefer the traditional construction of chains from Izumi, Wippermann and Shimano.
