I'm in the middle of building up and Alfine 8 Inbred from scratch(mostly from the classifieds) but wondered if the Shimano Alfine crankset will fit OK. It's a 16inch frame if it that makes a difference. I'm speficially thinking about the clearance between the ring and the chainstay. The rings come in 39T or 45T flavours. If not, does anyone have any suggestions to get near to the 42.7mm chainline?
Any advice appreciated.
