    New t275 fairly noisy...

    Hello! My new t275 is pretty great, but it is pretty noisy when maching down the trail and hitting rough sections. Im running XO1, so it seems chain slap shouldnt be an issue. Any one else experiencing fairly loud clunky sounds? Everything seems tight...maybe im slightly crazy.

    Check your pivot bolts, front/rear axles, shock bolts, etc. A slightly loose part somewhere can amplify when ripping down the trail at Mach 5 Millon

    I find that carbon bikes amplify trail noise differently than alloy, my Yeti with XO1 isn't as quiet as I expected it to be, it's my first carbon frame, although I've ridden a few.

    some sram clutched derailleurs have a clunk deep into the travel
    take your propedal off and bounce on the bike in a quiet place and if it is doing it you will hear it and feel it.
    if you stretch out the derailleur like you are going to remove the wheel and push the keeper pin in and bounce on the bike again and it stops...
    theres your answer
