I got a new bike just before Thanksgiving and Ive really been enjoying it, except the drivetrain. Its got the 800 level Shimano GRX 1x and it feels… crunchy. Is this just a GRX 1x thing or is something out of whack?On the trainer I have it in the 6th or 7th gear, so the chainline is a straight as possible, but its still noisey. I just swapped to a freshly waxed chain today and it didnt help.
Previous bike had Ultegra 6800 and was always silent and buttery smooth. 1x mountain bike drivetrains I’ve had here way smoother and quieter. Shifting seems to be a little slow, but I just figured it was because of a 11-34 cassette instead of the old 11-28.
