    I just noticed that the crank arms on my SB66 aren't evenly spaced.

    The drive side has the iscg spacer installed and has much more chain stay clearance than the non drive side. Cranks and BB are Sixc. With the boots on the end of the crank arms the non drive side has about a folded piece of paper of clearance. The chainrings are lined up and work perfectly with the rear cassette and derailer. Is the non drive side adjustable?

    according to the RaceFace manual you should have 1 black spacer on the non-drive side, and 1 black and 1 white spacer on the drive side (outside the ISCG plage), is that what your setup is?

    There isn't a white one on the drive side. If I added one this would affect the chainline, right? Right now it shifts perfectly. I found an extra black spacer that wasn't installed. It doesn't look like it would make it even, but certainly much closer.

    I am running SIXc cranks with hope BB and just had a quick look at my bike and it is pretty much centred, although I have the cranks spaced to a 51mm chainline to help with front derailuer to chain stay clearance issues. I wouldnt be too concerned about a couple of millimeters here and there.

    I found the problem. Bike was a bit dusty. Still don't know how I missed this.

    Broken actually. Carbon SIXC.

    LBS is sending it back for me. Shocked it broke as easy as it did. I don't think I even have 20 rides on the crankset. Keeping my fingers crossed that they warranty it.

    If it makes you feel better I have about 800km on mine and no dramas yet. Hopefully it's just a one off !!

    That's crazy that you broke those things, man. I used to work for Race Face and saw first hand how they're made (one guy lays them up, one at a time) and the levels to which they test them (rate stronger than Saint in every test I saw). The only thing I can imagine is you got some really bizarre mfg defect.

    As MrFish said up above, I also have tons of miles on mine doing some pretty crazy/dumb stuff (all in the name of product testing, of course). No issues whatsoever.

    Best of luck with the warranty process.
