steamroller chainring clearance
right now on my steamroller i've got 42:14. i want to go to a smaller ratio, but with bigger gears. the thing is, right now, my 42t up in front is REALLY close to the chainstay. it is on the inside of the spider, and i know i can put the new one (assuming i get a bigger chainring) on the outside of the spider to get more clearance Clarence, buuuut then my chainline would be all messed up.... would i need to adjust the hub in order to adjust the chainline's vector Victor?
by the way i've got a surly hub in the back.
so does anyone have a big chainring on a steamroller with a surly hub, and if so howsit done?
