It is one thing to make sure the chain doesn't rub on the DO, it is another to have enough clearance on the seat stay to allow the chain to move from one sprocket to another. It is more a configuration of the stay "exiting" from the DO.

Obviously, all you need is a functional drive train to test.
Bikes don't stand alone. They are two tired.
