I picked up a locally built steel frame last week and the braze-on front derailleur barely clears the 53T chainring, practically nicking it as it passes. The FD is mounted as high as I can on the braze-on mount. Could I grind it down by 1-2mm or should I find another solution like shaving off the mount and using an adapter ring? (I really don't want to do this)
Also, the crank arms didn't seem to go on really far, but far enough to get a good deal of screw threads in and they feel secure, but does it look alright?
Thanks for the help
