    Idea! Lurcher + Rohloff - Yet another Chainline question

    Re post from the On One forum.

    Just Rohloffed my On One Lurcher for the summer season in the mountains, so far so good.

    I have a doubt about the chainline.

    In my previous build, a Scandal with external BB, Shimano HT2, I was using a SLX triple with a single chainring in the outer position, as Rohloff recommends a 54 mm chainline and the outer position should be the closest to that.

    Now I am using the same chainset on the Lurcher, but with the ring in the middle position (coming from a nexus 3).

    Eyeballing it looks just straight, also measuring with a metal ruler it looks fine.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    The setup works great btw, much better than with the alu frame, a carbon HT is spot on for the Rohloff imo.

    I don't understand your problem. It works great, and measures straight. What's the issue? IIRC it's 50mm to the middle on a shimano. Your concern is that it should be off by a few mm and doesn't appear to be? Perhaps you accidently flipped the Rohloff cog giving a different chainline.
