Straightened the chain line and it still rat
So I replaced the front cog with a da cog and it still rattles the chain appears to wiggle back and forth ~~~a very very small amount as it comes down the chain line. It makes a rattling sound when it gets to the cog.
oh man i think i know the problem lol, your bottom bracket might be too long . mine is too long, i need to get shorter ones. OR your spider might be bent.
If you're referring to the BB spindle length, I think he mentioned he got the chain line "pretty darn straight" so I don't think that's the problem.

EDIT: If I'm not mistaken this is to be used indoors at home? Have you tried riding outside?
