Breaking my bike down for the spring overhaul, have had some chainsuck issues when the drivetrain gets dirty/dry.
Pulled the BB, it is a SRAM/Truvativ bottom bracket, says "BSA GXP" on it, have no idea which model it is exactly but looks like Truvatic GXP team (http://www.sram.com/en/truvativ/bott...bb.php)...this bike is a bit of a bastard build and I am pretty sure it was built by a completely inexperienced mechanic. The manual for the BB says that for a 68mm bb shell and 9spd drivetrain it should have one spacer on each side.
It had one spacer on each side the way it was built...is this the way it is supposed to be set up for the mojo? Should I be putting another spacer on either side to reduce chainsuck or move one to the other side?
On a related note, with a X9 setup, I have never been able to get the front derailleur setup well so that it doesn't rub on the outside gears...yes, I understand cross gearing, but I think I should be able to use all 9 gears in my middle chainring, I have never been able to get this to work (yes, I know how to adjust derailleurs, but this is my first 3x9 setup...
