    I was wondering why my chain had worn from perfect to knackered between measuring it at 1,200 miles
    and replacing at 1,500 miles.

    As I was changing the chains I noticed that the return idler bearings were binding causing the chain
    to slip on the idler wheel - this was caused by a washer having been left off. Whether this was my
    fault or not I don't know. Anyway, with the washer back in place the idler runs very freely and the
    chain runs much quieter. So maybe that was
    it.

    If the new (SRAM PC69) chains don't last, though, I'm still going to 8-speed.
