Chainline help please
This is the first bike ive ever built (frame is 2nd hand). Its all gone pretty well apart from Im now stuck with a weird chainline. Its going to be 1×9.
The frame is a dartmoor Shine, Rear derailer is a Sram X9, cassette is SRAM PG-950 9-speed 12-23t, Rear hub is a charge disc (came of my donor charge blender). I have fitted a race face BB and cranks that is quite adjustable with different spacers but ive taken out the spacers on the drive side and is as close to the BB as it will go. How do i go about fixing this?? Are there spacers inside the rear hub to move the cassette over?

Ahh.. Thanks!! yep may work. I have a MRP chain guide to go on too so will be close if i move the chainring in. I have noticed that the mech hanger doesnt slide all the way into the drop out so i might file a bit off the hanger to slide it right to the back of the dropout.
You never realise these niggling little things about what goes into a bikes buils until you go and build them yourself. I suppose its great if you have a massive spares box and can go wandering off to the shed and get the part… its get to the frustrating point where i keep having to wait for a part.. then another part.. I just want to ride it now as i dont have a working bikePosted 5 years ago
I dont think spacing the chainring will work as its the rear cassette that is too close to the stay so the chain wont clear it. Can i put some kind of spacer on the skewer between the stay and cassette?Posted 5 years ago
Can i get a adjustable rear hub??
Is this the excuse i need to buy a shiny set of new rims?andylMember
what are the cranks? got a side on picture?
edit: are you sure the frame is not single speed only?
Might need to go hub gear or maybe a reduced ratio trials style rear cassette? Like the ones you fit to the hope trials hub but mount it further in with a spacer on the outside.Posted 5 years ago
