    Silencing SRAM's transmission

    Is there a way to silence SRAM's transmission? My gears are perfectly aligned so I'm not talking about that nor the cassette noise. I'm already using a Dura-ace cassette. I didn't notice as much until I went back on my 11-year old bike with Campagnolo. The transmission is completely silent while pedaling. The only thing I hear is the wind and tires against the road.

    I would love to get my SRAM equipped bike the same way. Any help is appreciated.

    Use Chain-L on the chain.

    I am using Chain-L on a KMC SL chain (on both bikes).

    I just switched from a 1070 to 7900 DA. The DA runs alot quieter than the 1070. I'm using a Rotor chain. For lube I use Squirt.

    The chain makes contact with the drivetrain at 2 different points.
    One is at the cassette, which you already fix
    The other is at the chainring. Might need to get Shimano DA chainrings too

    Match the chain to the cassette.

    How old is your Campagnolo drivetrain? A new drivetrain is always a bit noisier. My pure SRAM drivetrain on a rain bike is almost silent but that does not make it better than new ultegra on my primary bike.

    New SRAM chain (1xx1 model line) or any Shimano 10 speed. The new Red cassette will be quieter than even a DA cassette. If still loud, it's probably out of adjustment.
