Hey guys, I recently bought a new sprocket (colony cc 25t) and a new chain (shadow conspiracy interlock) and I got it all fitted on my bike with my profile racing cranks and my profile mini rear hub and I went to go for a ride and didn't even get out of the drive way without it making a big pooping and crackling notice when I put pressure on it I have tested it with another chain and sprocket still nothing and I have used a different bottom bracket still nothing what can I do??

It's pooping!? Damn.

It's probably just the hub breaking in. Minis tend to skip a lot for the first few weeks you ride them

The chain will need to stretch a bit, but you could have a worn driver. Also, if it's a half link chain, make sure you've put it on properly

sounds like it's just wearing in, new chains will often do that. my Odyssey chain made horrible noises for the first like 2-3 weeks (mainly cause it was Winter and I didn't ride much, and if I did it was at indoor parks so I wasn't pedaling place to place.) So just ride it a good bit and it should go away in time.

Also like Steve said, make sure it's installed properly. The fatter part of the chain should be facing forward like this
