Re: E.13 Lg1+ Rubbing, Anyone Else Had Problems With Setup?

I've got a similar and yet totally different problem.... so any advice while we're talking about chainlines and BB spacers. I;ve got some atlas cranks on Nomad and ye drive side crank only clears ye chainstay by about 2mm. be this fixable with spacers without squirreling ye chain line?? (135mm rear, 73mm shell, currently running with one 2.5mm spacer as per Race Face instructions. Looking to install a guide too.

Ta (soz for ye hijack)

Forgive me potential sillyness, but how doesent ye cranks end up one ye same place with a 68 and 73 for something like a hollowtech crank? I be knowin' with Isis etc ye can get diff spindle lengths etc

ye run 2 spacers drive side and 1 on ye non for ye 68. And 1 spacer on ye drive 0 on ye non drive side with ye 73, making ye total bb width ye same for each. So ye cranks end up in ye same place. (ye spacers be 2.5mm aint they?)

Good point, depends what cranks he's running, iscg mounts or bb mount etc I guess. Chain guides be a pain. Joys o' chainguides really.

Depends how ye set up hallowtech cranks as well, I found mine with 73mm shell worked better with no spacer on ye drive.

That sounds like a good idea, and definitely better than filing ye plastic on ye guide down. will try it on Monday; cranks be stylos, bb be a truvitav gxp . old iscg mount with no adapter if that helps. At ye moment there be no spacers on me shell if that helps? I' m guessing that ye 73mm measurement be taken when there be no spacers on ye bb at all so by spacing it out as per wobblers advice for a 73mm would mean that I end up with a bb width o' 75.5 mm and a mint chainline? sorry just trying to get me head around it all.
