new cranks don't clear chain stay. what to do?
I recently bought a used landshark steel track frame. It came with some rigged up road cranks, that didn't clear the chainstay when I installed them. rather than screw around with them, I bit the bullet and ordered a new set of sram omniums. I just installed them, and they don't clear the chainstay either! It's not by much, just on the end of the cranks 5 "spokes" where the bolts go through.
so.. should I put a dimple in the frame so it clears, file down the cranks, or put a spacer in and try to adjust my chainline accordingly?
