Don't use non o-ring chain
A few months ago I put a new non o-ring chain as a temporary measure as I planned to put on a new chain and sprockets before my big trip in May. Unfortunately there was a fair bit of noise from the chain area and the gear change was clunky. I had the new chain and sprockets put on today and just rode it home and the noise is gone and the gear change is good again. Last time I use a non o-ring chain on a bike that uses an o-ring chain.
