    BB spacers for Saint M815 bottom bracket and 83mm BB shell Q

    I have a frame that has an 83mm BB shell.

    According to the Shimamo Saint M815 PDF, they're calling for 2x 2.5mm spacers on the drive side and 1x on the non-drive side.

    I'm trying to tighten up the chain line a bit so what harm would I be causing if I swapped the spacers: 2x on the non-drive and 1x on the drive side??

    Much easier instead of finding small chainring spacers that go between the ring and the spider, and possibly having to find longer chainring bolts.

    Disregard... answered my own question: I wouldn't have enough BB cup threads engaging on the non-drive side.
