I have just received my long awaited Tacx Neo 2T and after installation of a new 11-speed Shimano cassette, I’ve put my Giant Propel on it and unfortunately noticed an ugly noise (some grinding, some clicking and clacking) that happens across quite a few of the gears. Shifting seems to be more or less fine and adjusting the tension doesn’t improve it much.
I’ve researched a bit and seems like it could be a similar issue to this: New Kickr Core, super noisy drive train, grinding feeling?
In short, it could be the fact that the cassette is new, but the chain is not.
I will check tomorrow if it is resolved by using the old cassette, but my question is: This can’t be a sustainable solution if you have only 1 bike that you use outdoors too. Changing the cassette every time doesn’t seem to be very practical.
- Would the grinding noise eventually go away if I just kept the new cassette on it, or would it just ruin my chain?
- I assume new chain and new cassette would resolve this, but then you’d need new chain rings in the front too?
Not a very experienced cyclist here, so hoping to tap on collective wisdom…
