I'm running full M737 on my Zaskar now. I've fitted a 110mm BB but am getting chain suck. Something i didn't get a sniff of when it had M560 on it (and a 118mm BB). The only differance is that M737 is CD whereas the LX was 'standard', i'm wondering if my chain length is now causing the issue as chainline appears OK. How do i work out the cause? :?

Nope, The granny and outer are virtually new and the middle seems fine too. It's a NOS cassette and new chain.

can you increase the tension on the rear mech - might stop the chain from pulling up.

But as i previously voted, e-stays aren't cool :P (except maybe a Kestrel).

I've wound the tension screw on the rear mech in all the way, i'll drop another link off the chain too.

If all else fails with tweaking the mech, removing links etc, buy a DCD!!

And if the noise annoys you, a bit of rubber over the roller and you have sweet silence :wink:

And with one of these bad boys, you wont get chain suck or slap.
