With reference to the new/used bits of your question, note that using worn consumables (chain, cassette etc.) on a bike is never a good idea, largely because you're in the dark as regards how much life is left in them. So my best guess is that the chain or maybe both chain and the cassette needs replacing for new parts. Assuming that these parts are ...

Yes, you can. You can go from higher speed chains (9 speed) down to lower number of gears (such as your 6 speed). It isn't till you hit the 11 speed chains that it becomes a pain. a 10 speed chain will fit down to a 7 (personal experience). And a 11 will fit a 10 with no problem. That said, the advantage to a 6,7,8 speed chain is that they are thicker and ...

10 speed works with 10 speed. You will be fine with the chain you have. The major difference being that the one that is made for 3x10 will be a couple links longer generally. Usually this is designated by a number such as 116L where the L stands for links. Width wise you should be fine with any 10 speed chain. 10sp chains are slightly more narrow than a 9sp ...

The part is a front derailleur. It job is to shift the chain between the front gears. Change gears while looking at it, you'll notice it moves and pushes the chain between sprockets You need to adjust it, removing it would actually require more effort since it will need you to delink the chain somewhere. Also, removing would remove your gear shifting ...

Those teeth are severely worn, just by visual inspection. Try a new cassette, chain rings, and chain. (Don't try changing just one.) It could have been the grime that was holding the worn system together, and when you cleaned it all the play now shows up. In the future, if you replace your chain more often you can make the chain rings last longer.

I know you are supposed to: Resize the chain by from the side that terminates at an inner link, this way when you place the new pin into the chain, the outerlink has never had a pin in it before. There's wear created on outerlinks when you insert and remove a pin as you probably guessed by how much force you need with a chain tool to insert and remove a ...

The first thing to check is that your rear wheel can take a 10 speed cassette. If this is the case, then you can move to step two, which is picking compatible rear derailleurs and shifters. A 10 speed Shimano road shifter needs a 7-9 speed mountain/road rear derailleur or a 10 speed road derailleur. A 10 speed Shimano mountain shifter needs a 10 speed ...

A couple of things I see: I think your derailleur is a bit out of adjustment and is "leaning" towards the lower gears. It's grabbing on the ramps of the lower gear as it goes by. Your B screw adjustment is a bit too far away from the cassette. I would try to get it within a link or link and half. It looks from the video that you are about 2-3 links ...

Whenever I have had a problem with a regular clicking noise coming from the chain - it has been either a stiff link (which goes as the chain loosens up through use) or a split pin on the chain ie. the pin has detached from one side of the chain. It can be hard to spot but worth examining for.

That's weird! It sounds like slack being taken up on the cranks, but the image doesn't match that. Try separating the components - take the wheel out, can you feel any notchiness on spinning the cassette? Diagnostic Ideas: Take the chain off, and feel it for stiff or grotty link. Then clean it and measure it for wear. While chain is off, inspect the ...
