I spent some time working on the bike today. After giving the chain a well-needed cleaning and adjustment, I took it for a test-ride and the chattering sound is gone.

Certainly the chain was showing signs of its age, and the front sprocket had the beginnings of some hooking. So if there was any doubt about swapping the chain and sprockets this winter, there isn't any more.

If it's a good day to wash the bike, it's a better day to ride the bike.
