    Alfine 8/crankset quetion

    I am going to be building a Jones diamond frame. I am going to use an Alfine 8 hub been wanting to build a bike around this hub for sometime! I have a couple of questions. THe chain line 41.8 is tight I am having trouble finding a crankset that gets me there.

    I want to use a surly mr whirly crankset but I am not sure it will work?

    I have read that some flip the cog and that widens the chain line a bit. Any suggestions would be appreciated

    You're right. I believe it ends up being 47.5mm with the cog flipped. The clearance is tight but it works.
