fd chain rub
so i'm pretty much done with my new build, except for one small issue. there seems to be a chain clearance issue with the front derailleur in the small/large
chainring and cog combo.
i'm using an '09 campy veloce fd (which is supposedly universal for both compact and standard road cranksets) and a race face cadence standard road crankset with the x-type external bottom bracket. i'm fairly certain this is the maximum inside position for the fd. on top of that i have both crankset chain line spacers on the drive side and i haven't tightened the crankbolt to the maximum. the instructions for the crankset state that the crankbolt should reach a hard stop, which i have yet to experience even while trying to max out the bolt, but if i tighten it any tighter than it is now the chain will rub the inside of the fd. what gives?
