I've recently built up a kinesis tripster using my old running gear from my road bike.
The running gear is all sram rival apart from the rear mech which is Xx to fit the 32 tooth cassette.
The chainset is a 34/50 compact with a brand new bottom bracket
In first gear when I put the power down it feels like it is rubbing. When I'm off the bike it looks very close but doesn't touch. I'm guessing the flex in the frame rubs. I've put tape on the frame to protect it but it is getting rubbed off.
I currently have 1 spacer on the drive side. I've tried adding another spacer but when it tightens up it just locks and won't spin freely.
I'm guessing its because the chainset is designed for a 130 rear hub and mines 135.
Any suggestions? Will swooping to a shimano chainset like 105 solve this as it doesnt have the built in tensioner that sram has?
My other thought is a classic square tapered bb as you can choose the length?
Thanks for your time.
