I thought I would try a post here and see if any wrenches have suggestions for me. Recently I have been getting a crazy amount of chain slap on my Ciclon to the point that it is distracting the ride and makes the bike sound like it is falling to pieces. I have taken out links several times hoping to reduce noise but no luck. I have already taken enough links out that I cannot shift into any big ring low (not that I use those but I discovered this the other day). Any suggestions? Just get a new chain? The current chain is SRAM 991 that is 3 months old with a SRAM 970 cassette, XO shifter, X9 rear der, XT cranks and XT front der. Also it is always the lower portion of the chain bouncing. Last night I noticed it even slapped when pedaling at times. I could fix the problem by riding with my Ipod but I would rather ride smooth and quiet.
