- Need help diagnosing drivetrain noise
The words “****” and “hope” have been used a lot tonight.
Swapped shock, checked pivots again, regreased linkage, swapped cranks – no difference
Put a hope/stans wheel off my 26″ 456 (which it rides surprisingly well with) in, noise goes away. Swap freehub body & cassette off 650b wheel on to the 26″ wheel, no noise.
At this point I’m thinking “what the hell?” then, with no freehub on the 650b wheel I turn the axle in it and realise just how rough it feels. I have no idea how rough bearings translate into this noise but it’s really chuffing rough.Posted 3 years agostoneyMember
Well done gardron… sounds like you`ve nailed it…., and i dont think any of us said rear hub bearings….. 😳
Quick mention re Troutwrestler… The Sram XX1 suffers from a creak/cracking noise and greasing the shaft etc cures it. There are some vids to show you, it may be a similar aet up?.Posted 3 years ago
The clutch would put more stress on the chain (that’s what keeps the tension, right) so it could be BB or preload on the cranks or chainring bolts at the front end, or at the back it could be dropouts or something which interfaces with the cassette which is flexing more, or maybe jockey wheels. Or your clutch is a bit buggered.Posted 3 years ago
