Replaced my Truvativ Husselfelt ISIS crankset with a Shimano Saint HT2 crankset (used, but in pretty good nick).
Got the BB shell faced today.
My frame (GT Ruckus) has a 73mm wide shell, so I needed no spacers on the non-drive side, and one on the drive-side.
I run a DMR Chainreactor chain-device (http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...?ModelID=10800) which acts as the spacer, so none were needed.
I am running a dualring/bash up front
Now, I have fitted it all properly, but the chainline is messed up. In the lowest gear (inner most front and back) the chain line moves away from the bike as it goes towards the front of the bike ie the front chainring it much further out than the inner-most rear cassette ring.
Another thing, the bottom section of chain (bottom of small chainring > jockeywheel) cant run in a straight line as the roller on the chain device pushes it outwards from the bike.
Now, Ive checked countless times the cranks are on properly/pushed on fully etc. Removing the roller doesnt really help, as the chain just rubs on the plate, and I cant remove the plate as I need it as a spacer.
I guess I could just run it as it is as I dont often use the lowest gear, but still, there must be something wrong? And its just going to speed up drive-train wear.
So, any ideas why the messed up chainline?
I may be able to pop to my LBS tomorrow, not sure if I have time, but any ideas first?
