Front sprocket noise normal ?
I had my bike up on the paddock stand turning the back wheel to inspect the tread and as I turn the wheel the front sprocket is making a constant "snick, snick" sound as it rotates.
Chain is correct tension, lubed ok, no kinks or obstructions. Sprockets good, chain good overall.
The clicking noise seems to be coming from the front sprocket hub, which feels to have a tiny bit of horizontal freeplay when I pull on it. Centre nut is on tight. The bike rides fine.
Am I being paranoid, or is it normal to get a bit of mechanical noise from the chain and sprockets ?
