Crank arms clearance

HI to everyone,

Need help. Recently I installed the Shimano XTR crank set and it seems
that are the crank arms too close to the chain stay (5 mm).
Would the spacers help.

Thank you

Nice Klein. Low q factor is a high end feature now. The spacer is for different BB shell widths, the overall width is fixed.

Forgot to mention, this is the double ring crank set.
So the triple ring crank set would be the only solution.

No, spacers would not help. 5mm should be plenty of clearance. If there truly is a clearance issue, a longer axle is the solution.

As long as the crankarms or inner chainring don't rub on the chainstays, I don't see any problem.
