Chain + Cog problem

(closed)
I've recently changed my chain and chainring and since then, it seems like my chain's been 'sticking' to the cog. It's strange and it creates a lot of noise. I've greased my chain and the noise is still there.

It could be the wrong size chain, chain ring, or cog.
You might even have your chain too tight or you pulled the wheel to one sider more so than the other.

It's weird cause the chain wraps around the chainring without a problem but when a certain part of the chain passes the cog, it becomes really tight. It's only that one part of the chain that causes noise.

flex your chain sideways, you probably have a stiff parts in the chain, or a tight spot in the chainring when you put on a new chainring (chainring not align with the crank)

Hm, that might be it. I'll do that soon and let you know what's up.

Your chain tension is too tight and unless you are using a very high quality chainring, I would guarantee it isn't perfectly round, causing a tight spot as it rotates. Even if your chainring is round, it may be off center (read [url=http://velowoodcyclery.wordpress.com/20...]).

Changed my rear wheel to a b43 laced to a Miche Primato hub with an 18t Phil wood cog. (Bike anchor) It's deadly silent now. Thanks for the suggestions guys!

could be a case of:

3/32 chainring
3/32 chain
1/8 cog.

if your chain wasnt new id say a ridiculously stretched chain.
