I'm replacing the original "Custom Shimano Hollowtech, Octalink XT Spline" crankset and bottom bracket "Shimano ES-30 Octalink spline, 68 mm shell, 121 mm spindle, 50 mm chainline" with the XT HT II crankset (including new bottom bracket).
When I install it with the two spacers on the drive side and the one spacer on the left side (normal front derallieur clamp) I get the chainrings very far out, the big one almost in line with the outer derallieur plate. I tried to measure the chainline, and I got it to about 52 mm.
Have anyone experienced this problem?
I think I'll have to get the two spacers on the left side. That would be OK I guess? But why does this happen?
