    XCL 1x9 chainline?

    I removed the front D, and added a spacer, but maybe I shouldn't have added the spacer.
    The chain is straight when on the 4th sprocket, not the middle 5th.
    Without the spacer, the 5th would be the one for straight chain.
    This would be the same if running 3x9 using the middle ring, so I suppose it's by design?

    FYI, the spacer is definitely needed if running an inner guard.
    Took a closer look and there is about 1mm of clearance between the chainstay and the guard.
    Without the spacer the inner guard would grind into the stay.

    The inner is Blacksprire Blackguard.
    It's very thin, so it maybe the only one that can work with XCL.

    Neat. "Chain Sandwich". Give us a ride report when you get some miles in on that set up...

    Strafer, if you chainring bolts are long enough to allow for some spacing. You could get some chainrings spacers. They come in many increments. You could space the chainring in 2mm to your desired chainline. I use these all the time.

    Thanks for the link, SN. Bookmarked for future reference.
    I don't have enough room to use those, but i spend most time in 3rd-5th cogs so will ride with current setup.
    I see at that site that a short cage assembly is available for 07 X9, and that should make 1x9 shift smoother.
