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)

phil BB and profile hubs, chainline?

Hey, kind of a newbie here but I was reading around and read that profile hubs have a 44mm chainline which would cause noise with the chain.

I was planning on getting a Phil Wood bottom bracket and profile hubs, just wondering if that would cause any chain noise? (I have a chainring that has a 144 if that helps)

You need to figure out your spindle length. Phil bb's offer +/- 5mm of chainline adjustment, but you need to get yourself a spindle that's ballpark first.

First, what frame is this?
Second, what cranks?
