I live on the 3rd floor of a wooden apartment building. In order to make things quieter for my neighbors I recently replaced a fairly noisy kickr snap with a neo 2t. Everything is much quieter now except for upshifting to smaller cogs in the rear.
I have Sram apex 1x with the pg1130 11-42t cassette, and it often makes a loud clong noise when upshifting, like the chain is slamming down onto the smaller cog. I haven’t used a well-turned shimano system in a while, but I’m pretty sure it was a lot quieter when doing the same kind of shift.
Short of getting a new bike or replacing my entire drivetrain with shimano, is their anything I can do? Specifically I’m wondering if getting a shimano cassette might reduce the shifting noise? In swift I definitely don’t need the range of an 11-42t, so maybe a 105 or ultegra 11-28?
Thanks for any insight
