    Sram XX1 11-SPEED Chainring durability....on Jet9rdo

    So after about 600 miles, I put a new chain on my bike and now when I pedal with effort in (any gear/ left and right), I get this grinding sound from crank area. I had my old chain checked by shop and they said it was close, still OK, but I replaced any way. Could it be that the larger teeth on the chainring are much "sensitive" ? Easy pedaling, forward or backward seems just fine.

    Just an update after visiting LBS.....tried a couple of different fixes, but in the end it was the chainring. When pedaling with effort, it was not releasing the chain, causing it to "stick" for a micro-second. After checking my records, actual mileage was closer to 900 miles.

    Did it resolve with a new chain ring?

    I was wondering about chain tension when I read the initial post but I guess that wasn't the case.

    What kind of lube are you running on the chain? I wonder if that could of been a factor as well?
