I am swapping an triple-crank Athena groupset onto a steel framed Tommasini Prestige (to replace a double Mirage set that I never found shifted well.)
The Athena group came with everything except a BB, so I planned to leave the exisitng Veloce sealed BB in place and build up on that.
At step one, I notice that the small chainring is butted right up on the RH chainstay, touching and so not spinning free.
Can I / must I adjust the position of the BB spindle to free that up?
or, is this BB just incompatible with this crankset?
Or do I just need to use a longer BB spindle? (this seems the obvious solution.)
