Wondering if anyone's had similar problem here. I'm having to reverse shimano's bb-spacer instructions to get a half-decent chainline, which puts almost no clearance between chainring and chainstay. I'm beginning to wonder if it's possible that when the previous owner replaced the linkages, something went wrong in that process?? I haven't ever worked on Blur linkages, so I don't know in what ways it could be possible to mess up lateral spacing of the rear triangle... but this chainring clearance vs. chainline non-compatibility seems crazy.
I took a look at SC's instructions for removing/installing bearings and linkages, but without actually pulling it all apart I can't quite picture if it would actually be possible to have reassembled it in a way that offsets the rear triangle too far toward the drive side? Could bearings/seals be pressed in backwards, or just not seated, or...?
Are Blurs just designed this way, to work well with almost no chain/chainstay clearance? (and no BB cup spacer on the drive side???)
Any help or insights much appreciated!!
