I just installed a whole 1/8 drivetrain and it is much noisier than it was. Any one have any idea why? It has a KMC kool chain, gravity maximus cranks, velosolo 17t bolt on disc cog( so now its fixed), and a velosolo 32t chainring.

Your best bet is to follow the chain for a few. Are you using a bash guard?? Sometimes the chain will touch. Also it could just be the chain itself. If it has a tight joint it could cause some friction--noise. Hope you figure it out, because there is nothing more annoying than an SS with drivetrain noise!!

I don't know if this might be it, but when I moved to a 1/8" drivetrain, the chain touched the crank arm ring tabs:



I was running 32-16 & moved to 34-17 to resolve the issue.

From the pic it appears you have some sag in chain but if not a tight chain will do it also.
