Re: Gears feel rough

Yes I’m sure. Pedals are free and not rough at all. Been removed cleaned and bearing re greased a month ago.

BB feels fine.

Re: Gears feel rough

I’m not sure what part of the chain ring you mean? And for the life of me I cannot remember whether it was like this or not when the chain was initially fitted. I’m not overly concerned with it. It’s more annoying than anything as I’ve done a quite a bit of work to it recently and would like it runn...

Re: Gears feel rough

Chain is a SRAM PC-830 they were on a good deal at Halfords so I bought 2. I’ve just measured my chain against my one that’s still in box and the are exact same length so it’s definitely not the chain that’s stretched. I'm a trendy consumer.

Re: Gears feel rough

I really don't like the clip in chain baths. They can't do a thorough job. For me there is no substitute for removal, soak, scrub, power rinse, heat dry and wax lube. Chances are it has left grit and degreaser between the chain plates and rollers and that has diluted the new lubricant and drastical...

Gears feel rough

It didn’t feel rough at first no. But I had to change the rear derailleur cable 2 weeks ago as it snapped so I wonder if that has something to do with it even although it’s shifting up and down fine? It feels perfect in 6 and 7. I have put one drop of oil on every single link once a week since it wa...

Re: Gears feel rough

Bottom gear (smallest ring) is the only gear that feels ok.

I turned b screw a little inwards and 1-6th feels a lot rougher now.
