    Canfield Balance chain super close to seat stay

    Gents,

    I just built the rear wheel up (i9 hub/35mm carbon hoop), and threw it on my new Balance that I'm building up. When the chain is in the 11t gear the chain is incredibly close to the seat stay. There is maybe a 1/4 mm of space between the side plate of the chain and the seat stay. I ran the chain through and it definitely doesn't rub but I can't help to think that this isn't right. Is this normal??

    got off the phone with Canfield. Sent them pictures and they say it's all good and it is a result of the short chain stays.
