just finished building up my first fixed bike on an old 10 speed dawes frame with 126mm dropouts.
the problem is the chainline....
from my calculations, the rear hub (ambrosio) has a 44mm chainline.
the (very beautiful) stronglight front ring has a 46mm chainline.
i've taken her round the block a few times, and she rides fine, but there are some ominous noises coming from that back sprocket....
so. i can't/don't want to respace the rear wheel, as the axle is already a bit short for 126mm.
if i put the front ring inside the spider, its chainline becomes something like 39mm so it just gets worse.
do i have any other options?
should i just ignore the noises and ride on, or will my bike explode....
any ideas - help would be greatly appreciated.
