  1. I've been moaning here about clicking noises. I put on a new chain and cassette in September and
    sometime since I noticed this clicking/crunchy sound. Lots of fiddling and new jockey wheels helped.
    But last week I put another new chain on and silence reigned - bliss. The September chain, a
    Halfords Tyan (I think), was definitely longer than it should be and the PC48 made the difference.

    I do 60 miles a week on average going to work - how long should a chain last? I'm not an
    aggressive rider.

    All the time, in time with the crank revolutions, only when you were out of the saddle?

    What 'fiddling'made the difference?

    Was it the right chain for the amount of gears you have?

    > was definitely longer than it should

    It will be. They are made to fit a variety of cycles and gear ratios. You have to trim the
    chain to fit.

    Depends on the conditions you rode in and how often you clean it properly. Can't see any reason why
    a well maintained chain shouldn't last you in excess of 3000 miles. I change mine every 2000 or
    thereabouts, it saves on buying cassettes in the long run.
