    Rohloff + MRP Bling Ring?

    Anyone using an MRP Bling Ring with their Rohloff? I'm curious if you would have to run it backwards to get chainline to line up decently as it it is supposed to put the ring in middle ring position by design.

    Bling ring chainline is ~51mm and the Rohloff wants ~54mm so you are close.

    You could just use a few spacers to adjust the BB.

    Can you install a Bling Ring flipped? If so what's the change in the chainline?

    Yeah, I think I'll get one and try it flipped. I've already got some spacers going on so don't need any more of those. Wish I could get a 38t or 40t...

    Does not appear to be an option.

    The back side of the ring is heavily concaved, I'd say at least 4mm and with the way the spline pattern works, you may not even be able to get the splines to grab enough of the mount to be secure. If it worked (with slightly longer bolts), the difference in chainline would be 10mm I bet.

    My bike's in the shop right now, but I'll play with it when I get it back.
