Another new chain

After embracing the “quick release” chain link on my previous dura-ace chain and religiously removing the chain to clean it, it turns out that this was not a good idea and has shortened the life of the chain. An annoying clicking sound when under power that I initially thought was the bottom bracket, turned out to be “chain suck” due to stretching around the quick release link.

At 24,400km I have another new dura-ace chain without a removable link and the shifting is once again smooth and quiet.
