Ok, after installing the bottom bracket (went to a sealed type) I am noticing a few differences. It seems like the left side (where the chain ring is) is further out, and the right side is in further. Now the FD will only go up to the middle gear.
Anyway, here are some pics. Should I have still used the locking ring?
This is on the 1999ish Giant Rincon.
Thanks for any help.
