Just got my 28t sprocket fitted with a new chain, is it normal for it to make a weird grinding noise (probably describing it wrong)

kinda sounds like your alignment is a bit off vs your chain tension i'd have to look at it

Yes.

Your sprocket and driver are worn and the new chain needs to to wear to the sprocket and driver.

The sound should go away with time.

This.


Only thing you can do is wait for it to break in. When mine was breaking in I just cruised around town aimlessly before goint home & pedaling a lot to speed it up.


Another thing that helped was I lubed the literal shit out of my chain & filed down the teeth on the sprocket a little where there was obvious wear from my last chain. It helped a lot.

It's a brand new sprocket and brand new chain, would greasing my chain help?

You do NOT grease your chain, you lube it with oil.

But yes lubing it will help.

Testimony and apologies





I want everyone to know that Jesus Christ died on the cross for all of your sins, he went to hell for three days and defeated death and rose from the grave on the 3rd day.
