- Chain issues
The L limit screw is there to stop the deraileur dumping your chain over the top of your cassette into the spokes, so if to tight the deraileur will not quite move in far enough to allow the chain to settle comfortably and will instead try to ride up the out side ode the sprocket. As said above just 1/4 of a turn anticlockwise of the l limit screw ( don’t touch barrel adjuster yet) and see if this helps. If not check out the park guide.
This link is the best guide I found on the subject , take a minute to read and understand it then give it a go.Posted 3 years ago
It’s not rocket science and quit straight forward once you understand what you are doing .
Okay I tried what you suggested but it didn’t make any difference to the noise/vibration. I think the mech is set up properly and the problem lies with the angle of the chain as it looks pretty squint in the big cog. Is there any way to get a straighter line between the big cog on the cassette and the chainring?Posted 3 years ago
With my 1×10 set up I don’t notice any more noise from the cassette since the change but the NW ring is definatly noisier but I am guessing that is normal due to longer teeth with greater contact with the chain.
is it a brand new bike, could you ask the shop where you bought it or failing that an lbs.Posted 3 years ago
I changed it from 2 x 10 to 1 x 10
This is def chainline then.Posted 3 years ago
The Outer chainring of a dedicated 2 x 10 chainset is centered on about the 2nd or 3rd smallest sprocket. A dedicated 3×10 chainset or 1 x 10 chainset centers in the middle of the cassette.
So when in the biggest sprocket you have an undesirable bend in the chain
nope I saw it but though the OP had a brand new bike like he said in the first post. The advice to return to a shop was the sensible thing to do, do it first then let them deal with the fact it can’t be sorted. When someone doesn’t get what your suggesting then going somewhere with they have tools and knowledge isn’t a bad idea.Posted 3 years ago
