Rubber on Metal Squeaking Sound
« on: October 31, 2017, 10:01:08 PM »
So i went to lube the chain tonight and as i was rotating the wheel, there was quite a loud squeaking noise that sounded like rubber rubbing on metal. However i couldn't really pinpoint the source of the noise.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Cheers
Simon

It’ll be the chain running on the guide screwed to the swing arm experienced the same when I was cleaning and lubing the chain last night when you kneel down close to it makes a right racket think it’s made of plastic instead of rubber and also took the chain guard off to clean the crude underneath feck me what a ball ache that it is although probably better if your left handed  :002:
