    How quiet is your driveline?

    Posting this question here because I dont know who else to ask...

    I have 2 bikes, both have sram omniums, dura ace 53t chainrings, dura ace 16t cogs, one has a did daido chain, the other a izumi v super toughness.

    My question is how much driveline noise should this be making? Both bikes make a contestant clicking (similar to a dry chain but both are freshly lubed) on the stand, riding, sprinting, recovery, basically same sound all the time. I assume that the chainline must be off a tad due to the omniums but since there's no way to adjust I'm stuck. Anyone have similar noise? I only ask because all this time I've heard how ninja silent njs set ups are. Btw it feels ok physically, just want to be sure I'm not losing power/speed due to drag or something. Should I just live with it?
