chainline on my fixed conversion

Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

chainline on my fixed conversion

so, eyeballing with a ruler, it looks like my chainline is about to be off by 1mm. I guess i'll know for good once i get a chain on there, but is 1mm enough to really mess things up, or will i be cool?

I know this thread was a joke, but eyeballing does not include using a ruler. That's why it's called eyeballing.
