Yep, did the same. Placed some lube on the contact points and all seems fine now. I don't think there is any other way round it.
This linkmay be of use to this sticky too.
I am a complete noob when it comes to bikes and bike maintenance, so im hoping that someone with more experience could potentially help.
During the last 2 or 3 days ive noticed a noise which is getting louder and louder. It started off as a clicking noise. I thought this may have been a stiff link which was slipping around the rear mech, but as i checked the chain i knew it couldnt be!
Yesterday, and especially today, the noise has turned into a creaking noise from the front. It seems to happen as i am pusing down with my left foot, especially when climbing hills or pulling off from lights.
Can anyone else who has had a similar problem please advise? It is however going back to Evans soon as i am not impressed with the chain rubbing at the front!
