It happens. Unfortunately you don't know how the previous owner maintained the bike. How did the strainer look when you changed the oil? You've decided to go synthetic? I wouldn't worry about it too much. If it blows up it blows up :noteeth
Could be the gears. The more flakes that come out the lighter the bike is. Lighter = Faster
