BMXTRIX, thanks.

FWIW, what I did was:
- loosely install the chainwheel onto the crankarm
- loosely install the RH crankarm onto the spindle
- set the chainline with shims and a special straightedge I made up
- install the LH crankarm and shimmed so it's the exact same distance from the chainstay as the RH arm
- tweaked the two center bolts back and forth until the spindle was pretty well centered
- tightened everything up.

Seems good to go.

Should I have used antisieze on the splines? How about loctite on the pinch bolts?

Thx!
