    new crankset, derailluer problems

    hey,

    I just got a raceface evolve dh crankset put on my k2 flyin' monkey but now I can't reach the outer chainring because the derailluer won't go that far. I could just put a bash gaurd on and forget about that ring but I want to use it for speed. The bike shop put 2 spacers on the drive side and one spacer on the nondrive side of the bottom bracket.

    Should I get them to move the spacers all to the nondrive side? I don't think I can do it myself and I don't want to get them to do it if it won't fix the problem.

    Thanks.

    Sounds like the BB size is wrong, what size is on there now?. On My stinky with the same cranks 113mm BB and one drive side spacer my chainline was good (running 1x8 now however).

    well the K2 is a 68mm so i have to have the spacers on there to fit the 73mm bottom bracket

    Sorry my bad, I mean the Spindle width not the actual BB

    Sounds like you need a smaller spindle to get your chainline right? I'm just saying it's a possibility as I dont know the bike, that does seem like allot of spacers compared to my setup though, which is 68 also.

    actually I checked the raceface site and they instruct you to use the three spacers as the bike shop did on my bike if it's a 68mm bb.

    Maybe I should just get a new front derailluer?
    For right now, I set it up to a bash gaurd and 2nd gear switches to the first ring and 3rd gear is the 2nd ring.

    Have you had the shop check the limits on the front derailleur?
