The spider sits proud of the chainring when mounted inboard. The boss sits out WAY father than the thickness of a chainring. It is superfluous material that just adds to its "stiffness" cachet.
My question is relevant to companies marketing road cranks as track cranks where you just stuff the chainring on the inboard side and spacer it for the 62mm fit. So the question stands, is it a proper track crank that the chainring sits outboard with a 62mm driveline? Even the stock Trek T1 cranks, the Bontrager S100/S300 style has the chainring mounted outboard and the driveline is wacky. Putting the chainring inboard makes it work, therefore my question.
Not that I really care any more, my T1 is up for sale but someone will need this info in the future.
