A month ago I bought a Scott Aspect 60, and for about a week everything was ok. Then, I started hearing a noise coming from the crankset.
First thought was that it was the front derailleur - after adjusting, the noise is still here.
Next, I tried cleaning the chain and lubricating it - didn't help with the noise.
The noise happens regardless how I pedal - sitting on the bike, standing, on a stand, forward, reverse.
If it means anything, the noise is gone if I remove the chain.
The noise is more-less constant, something like clicking, but irregular, perhaps more like scraping, but I checked, the chain doesn't touch anything other than the chainring.
Is there anything else I can do on my own?
