/ slightly strange bike question
how quite is a chain supposed to be (its possible this is just because i've never heard a chain properly before)
Hmm, it's definitely not silent, sort of a mechanical whirring, but gritty sound suggests grit! Get to work with a chain cleaner if you have one.
thats kind of what i suspected
I use a bit of Gt85, wipe it down with a rag, then lube it overnight, before giving it a final wipe before a ride. It's amazing how much crud comes out of a seemingly shiny chain.
