Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

bottom bracket offset for chainline

I've adjusted my bottom bracket over to get a perfect chainline and I have about 2mm of clearance on the driveside crankarm to the chainstain, and my left crankarm is about 8mm from the other chainstay.

Is this kind of assymetrical arm situation alright to have? Or any way to take care of it? I have an FSA platinum pro track bottom bracket, fsa vigorelli cranks, on a fetish position frame.

Thanks again
