    spacers with XTR BB and 2009 Superfly SS

    Anyone know what spacer combination is proper for use with an XTR BB and the 2009 Superfly SS (was a limited production run; the one with horizontal dropouts)? I can't seem to find any intel on this question. I'm not sure what size the BB shell is on the bike.

    Thanks in advance,
    Jeff

    Do you have the frame in your posession? If so you can measure the shell width.

    My guess is 73mm. If I'm right, you want one BB spacer. What side it goes on is dependent on your desired chainline.

    yep - it's a 73 mm shell. I put one spacer on the drive train side and have a sweet chainline to a King SS hub. Thanks.

    The spacer is supposed to go on the drive side. That puts the rings where they should be for the appropriate chain line. Since this is a SS setup there is room for interpretation. I've moved the single spacer to the non-drive side before to get better shifting but that isn't the way the system was designed.

    Yeah I know. But sometimes it works better with it on the other side.
