    Scalpel 29er xx1 conversion

    I ran into some problems getting the chain line right on the front end. Picked up e new NSB front 1x11 spider for XO/bb30. But the chain line ended up way wide. Is there something particular on the 2210 crank or spindle width that is throwing this off? I figured I'd be good to bolt and go.......

    The guys at NSB seemed helpful, but not having seen the scalpel they couldn't make sense of it over the phone. I think mine might have been one of the first few to ship so maybe more questions pop up.

    I haddn't put on the XX1 cassette yet, but a straight chainline put the chain on the 4th cog up the cassette from the small end.

    Hmm, it does appear that the spacer is much to big or that the crank arm is too long, as for fixing it I wouldn't know unfortunately.
