I would love to have a camel back frame. How do they ride compared to traditional geometry?

Cross-posted from the white bikes thread...
8-speed tricolor 600, not as vintage as some of the beauties on here, but it's almost old enough to drink.
42t business up front, 13-26 party in the back.

How do I line up the chainline for a 1x9 so that I don't have to worry about the chain falling off the big ring up front?

I would think that you should line up the chainring at 42.5mm, just like you would make it centered on a double.

I know that makes sense and maybe I'm over thinking it but when I was setting up my bike originally before I installed the FD the chain would fall off when in the biggest cog in the back..
