I copied this from the wolftooth thread. I didn't know that the BB shell was different? maybe it isn't and the stays are a bin wider, I don't know. I am just trying to think ahead for when I become a real man and run a bigger ring
Figured I would get more insight on the frame differences here and ring advice on the other thread.
Need help on my gxp DM. Switched to a carbon frame today and things are all messed up.
here's the clearance with the 10mm spacer and a mm or added from shims to clear the stay. These were both bb30 bikes. both Cannondale flash 29
I have a 16mm that was on my alloy frame to begin with. When I switched over to the x9 I used the 10mm spacer and it worked perfect. If I use the 16mm spacer (if its even possible) my chain line will be pretty messed up (at least I think)
heres the middle cog and it looks to be pretty good.
looks like if I go out any further this will get worse.
Thing is I would like to get a 32 or 34 tooth one day. there is no way there is room in there right now. unless the rings are offset different for different tooth sizes.
