 This website is full of know it alls. If he wants to have his chain ring there, then he will have it there. He obviuosly knows a fair bit about bikes and would have changed it a long time ago if it was causing a problem. Really nice bike by the way.

 the sprocket will probably flex when your on a sprint . . mine almost does and i wouldnt be surprised if this does also . . looks like it did at one point . . but either way . . . i know you like to be able to say mines closer so you suck but all is good

 just put a spacer on the bottom bracket... you may be able to get an extra 1/2mm of spacing...
or ,since you are not using a bashguard,you could also put the chainring on the outside of the crankarm instead of the inside sinse you are not using a bashguard

 I can't put the chainring on the outside of the crank arm because it would screw up the chainline too much, same with adding another spacer to the BB. The clearance hasn't been an issue yet, 0.5mm is enough for me.

 Your dumb, if your running SS you can just move over the back cog if it matters that much to you, and in any case it will not hurt the alignment at all, look at a derailer and the angle it puts a chain on, it is much greater than the extra mm here.

 HAHA, I just noticed he put the ring on the wrong side of the crank, Hahah

 It's not on the wrong side of the crank. Saint M800 cranks are designed for a 3-ring setup, therefore the middle ring is designed to go on the inboard side of the spider.

 had same problem with my shonky 32t as well. Got a different bb and axle then it was fine.

 You can't get a different axle for Saint cranks because it's a 2-piece design. It's a dedicated length for an mtb chainline and a 68/73mm shell width.

 If it's hitting the frame, isn't that negative clearance?

 It's not hitting the frame in this picture.

 But it does when it moves?
  • 1 1
 Nope, but it did when I sprinted, because it caused the chain ring to flex.

 the chainring is mounted in wrong way because you must mount it so that remain outside from the crank.

 its not because thats the middle ring of the saints, the outer ring would be on the outside but its not on

 If it was that easy, I would have done it a long time ago. Trust me, there's more to this bike than you can see in this image.
