    RF 2x9 chainline question

    Hey All,

    Will be running a RaceFace Deus with a Chris King BB in a 2x9 setup. XTR front derailleur. What chainline will likely work best with that?

    Also, the RaceFace spacers can be used with the King BB, correct?

    I'm going to be doing the exact same setup, minus the King BB. Anybody care to chime in?

    Well, since doing the original post, I just decided to run the chainline as though there were a 3-ring setup. It's okay, but not optimal. I get crosschaining in the three lowest gears with the (now) big ring. I'd rather be able to use the whole cassette, or at least all but the lowest, with the big ring. I haven't messed around with it yet, though, because I'm fooling with suspension and also just riding. I also just noticed that the front mech may be slightly askew, which when I correct it will hopefully give me at least one more cog on the cassette. I think I could live with that.
