Hello, everyone I'm new to this site but it looks great.Anyway I have recently changed the chain on my bike{shimano rsx components}.I now get this whurring noise from what sounds like the cassette or deralier I can't tell.The local LBS said my cassette looked good but should change the chain {over 2000 miles}.I used a sachs pc-51.I have about 300 miles on new chain.Should I change cassettes or chain or both?Or could it be the deralier.Thanks for any help and reading such along post I'm new at this and will hope to get better. thanks Art
Try lubing the chain...Mike Prince

Often a lubing of the chain quiets lots of drivetrain noises. The dry links can be noisy.
