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?
it sounds just like that. its just odd because i have a spare kmc indx chain and if i use it it runs quieter. i know the did/izumi chains are stronger so i run them but that noise is bothersome. guess if others have that sme noise then ill just love with it.
just to fuel the fire. my chain tension is set at 1/4-1/2 of vertical play (if you use your finger to lift the chain from its static point). the d.a. chainring/cog/did are used, the izumi chain is brand new. i hear that d.a. components make more noise after use. a friend is running sram omniums/sugino sen/eai cog/izumi super toughness and has the same noise on a kagero.
Added some slack, went from 1/4" to 1/2" to 3/4" to a way loose 1" with the noise still present. Went the opposite way to see and while it got quieter it also didn't spin as well. Guess ill live with it or go back to the kmc indx
