Hi guys. Yesterday i fitted a new 105 12-27t cassette and shimano chain to my Cube Agree GTC SL. Everything went on fine and after checking everything over i rotated the crank. On the highest gear (12t) one of the teeth keeps catching the chain and it jolts as it slides over the tooth. It looks like the the tooth is catching one of the link pins before dropping down into its proper position. I laid both old and new chain out before fitting and made sure the chain was the right size. Any ideas what may be causing this? Also, there seems to be a lot of noise coming from the cassette when its rotating in comparison to my old chain and cassette. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Thanks for the replies. I should have mentioned that I changed from a 12-28t to an 11-28t. No I haven't re-indexed the rear mech. I'm relatively new to cycling so I'm just learning as I go really. Reference the stiff link, it happens on the same tooth on the 11t cog each time, therefore it can't be a stiff link in theory.
