    Cog spacers going from 142 to Boost 148.

    I just switched from a 142 Nimble 9 to a Boost 148 Nimble 9. I was running a 6mm offset chainring on the 142 and have a 3mm "Boost" ring on the new frame.

    Can I run my cog spacers the same way in the new frame? I'm thinking everything moved the same amount so should be the same?

    * Using same crank, BB, and BB spacers as original frame.

    You can use the same method as seen here. Just substitute for the wider rear hub:

    So I just moved the same spacer setup to the new frame and it looks perfect in the stand. Shakedown ride will tell more.

    Sounds to me like the same setup should work. You moved the chainring outboard by 3mm, and each side of your hub moved out 3mm.
