2002 Id Chainline...
Does anyone know what chainlien the 2002 Id was designed around?
I've just tried to install a new XT crankset which is a 50mm chainline and in the middle/middle combo, the chain looks awful.
For some reason 47.5 rings a bell, but it would be nice to be sure..
I would like to know the answer too. Once I went through the new re-registration crap at their website, I got a response to my tech question w/in a couple of hours.

73x113 is the spec bb for the bike.
If you have an integrated crank, move a spacer from the drive side to the non-drive side where the cups screw into the BB shell.
I can't say for sure you need a 47.5 mm chainline but because the seatube is standard, 31.8, that is the preferred chainline for that seattube diameter in general.

I'm going to leave it a 47.5 ie one spacer on the non drive side. the chainline looks much better like that.
