Rolling (Chain) Noise...
This is the first bike I have owned. I've ridden friends bikes a few times over the years. All that being said I hear a lot of chain noise from my new 11V. I'm not sure if this really is "a lot" of noise, or if it just normal for the V. My wife says it sounds like a piece of paper caught somewhere rubbing.
I've done a visual inspection looking for anything and it's all clean and clear. The chain is the proper tension and it has been lubricated twice already (only 400 miles on it). I recently had the rear sprocket changed to a 43T and it has not affected the amount of noise.
When I have helmet and ear plugs in it is not loud enough to hear above 15mph. I really only notice it in parking lots or traveling through my subdivision.
Am I just being paranoid and all of this is normal?
