I had chainline problems with my Kilo WT, and had to move the cog outboard about 3mm by respacing the hub axle and redishing the rim. Problem was that the dropout spacing was off and the left and right stays were not the same distance from the centerline of the frame. Also, the Sugino RD2 crank was not set fully on the spindle, and moved inward a bit after multiple retightenings to the proper torque (33 ft-lbs). Another problem is that the stock cog is a total pos and does not run concentric or mesh properly with the chain, so getting consistent chain tension is nearly impossible. I replaced it and now it runs smooth and silent with a Soma 19T x 1/8 cog.
