    NOpe – all derailleur bikes make a noise as the chain goes round the jockey wheels. Yours as well. You are just used to it and tuning it out

    I’ve enjoyed riding singlespeed,its good fun.Having said that it only works where I live in the summer months when I have,faster ,easier rolling,grippy trails,where I can get good and constant traction and keep momentum.All of which are in very short supply here in the 5 months or so of seemingly wetter and wetter Winters.So for me my humble and cheap £50 NX 11 speed Deraileur with weather proof bushings rather than seizable bearings(and a big bonus – also jetwash proof) – is the little tough marvel that just seems to work,keep working and enables me to ride just about anywhere I want to.
    Of course now I’ve said that ,I know whats gonna happen on the next ride .
