    BTW you're a puss for not putting that chainring on a metal desk, giving it a few good macho hammer blows so it's straight, and riding it again.

    Psst.....mechanically it doesn't make a damned bit of difference which direction the bolts are facing, so long as they're tight.

    i got sugino cranks and messenger chainring; my local guru (always brilliant) tells me it's usual that the chainring goes on the outside, but having mine on the inside makes the chainline nice and straight... am i abnormal?

    I believe this is normal, but I don't own the cranks in question (Sugino RDs, I assume), so I can't say for sure.

    Not at all. Good chainline is good chainline, however you get it. I ran the chainring on the inside of the spider on my Basso conversion for a long time until I switched it to singlespeed, at which time the freewheel moved the effective chainline out a few mm and it made more sense to run the chainring on the outside.

    They're Sugino RDs and I've been running them that way for about 6 months (for chain line purposes)...no problems til this. I'll blame myself for not checking the bolts enough.
