Tech Talks Presented by Park Tool is a monthly video series hosted by Park Tool's own wrench whisperer, Calvin Jones. The series covers the A to Zs of some of the most prevalent repair jobs, with the twentieth episode explaining the ins and outs of your bike's chain line.
Chain line isn't something that I'd call a must-know, but with Boost spacing and all sorts of stock and homebrew single chainring setups out there, knowing why chain line matters can save you a load of trouble. Not only that, a bike with a poor chain line will run rough, suffer from premature wear, and possibly give you all sorts of headaches when things get dirty. Calvin is here to explain how to figure it all out.

The bike on the video fits these guidelines. I guess as long as you don't have weird dropouts or try to mix parts that are not designed to be mixed together you are good with those numbers.
