    Chain ring guard issue

    I just installed a Spot chain ring guard and Spot chain ring. With the MK.1 eyeball, the chain line looks pretty straight but the chain hits the chain ring guard on the top and bottom as it comes off/on the chain ring.

    Can I put some spacers between the chain ring and the crank arm, look for a narrower chain or should I just give up on the chain ring guard all together?

    what kind of rear hub do you have? it might be easier to put a spacer on your freehub if moving the driver further out would help. otherwise you can add spacers to the chainring to move it over closer to the frame, just make sure you get very precisely made, equal spacers.

    It's a Paul SS rear hub, no options on that end...

    If the chain rubs on the chainguard, your chainline is off.
