Is it ok to fit the BB without any of the plastic 2.5mm spacers? SS set up.
Reason for asking is that after taking off the outer and inner rings from a new LX M580 crankset, to leave just the middle 32t ring fitted to the inside of the 'spider' tabs, the chainline is measuring about 51/52mm and with my very basic 2 spacer SS hub kit, the rear cog is about 10mm inside the line of the front ring.
My current thinking is to remove the two DS spacers at the front, plus possibly the one on the NDS and get/fit a rear hub spacer kit that has a range of spacer widths that will allow the front to line up the rear cog.
Is it ok to fit and use the BB with no spacers? Can't seem to find any say so on tech docs, but I am a boy, so looking isn't a strong point
