    chain line

    I've just purchased a carver frame and want to run an eno crank (180mm).White ind. says a 113 bottom bracket will result in a 47.5 mm chainline. My rear chris king hub has spacers for 45 50 and 55 mm chain line. should I go with a 115 or larger to get a perfect chain line or stay with the 113.

    A 118 would put the cranks' chain line @ 50mm.

    Otherwise stick with the 113 and get a few 1mm cassette spacers to dial the chain line.

    Also, cogs are different; aside from different base widths, some are centered (i.e., King) and some (i.e., Surly) are off-set and flush to one side. So this will have some bearing on your measurements as well.
