    Hey,

    Got a '10 Marin Palisades that has a low end Truvativ crank and sq BB, 68mm x 113. I can get a great deal on a raceface deus (new). My question, before I decide to go ahead and experiment, is there anything wrong with leaving off one 2.5mm spacers on the drive side to bring the chainline to 48.5mm (which is the set-up now) from the 50mm as per the installation directions for a 68mm with a clamp on FD. There are 2 other 1mm spacers that can go +/- 1mm from 50mm but just wondering if my idea would work? Or am I just thinking too much and go with the 50mm set-up and adjust the FD? Am away from home at the moment and no shop near here to go pick minds. Thanks...
