    Ripley LS V3 owners

    Just wondering if you can do me a favor.

    Measure the distance between the crank and chainstays on both sides at ~the middle of the pedal hole.

    Please include your crank length. Just curious if on a stock crank set up that distance is the same side to side.

    The rear chainstay to BB doesn't look to be symmetrical.

    I've got SiSl2 cranks and when set up with a good chain line the drive side is a little further from the CS than the non-ds.

    Thanks

    I just checked on my bike.

    If there's any difference, it's very small, like maybe 1 or 2mm at most. Hard to say exactly because there are boots over the crank-ends which interfere with the calipers doing a precise measurement.

    See photos below. I have 170mm cranks and the gap between the crank and chain-stay was about 5mm on the drive side and maybe 6-7 on the non-drive side.

    Thanks, installing the cranks based on BB measurements I get a little over 5 Non-DS on one side and 10 on the DS.
