formula hub chainline?

Anyone know what the chainline is supposed to be on those formula hubs that come on alot of stock wheel sets? I thought they were 42 but i've heard different. Thanks...

Formula's hub 'chainline' is 36mm to the shoulder, then you have a cog with whatever width that adds. DA is 7.05 for instance. Check Sheldons site, center of the page

Added a phrase. The Formula hub with cog should be right about 42mm, which is standard.
