You may be right, but it is already done. If it last a couple weeks while I shop for a new part it will be worth it. If it lasts longer than all the better.

Not sure what you or the other poster mean about getting a new bottom bracket, but I have not really looked closely at how the chain line would be for that new small ring. If you can suggest some reading on this I would appreciate it.
