  • During my last build I found all the chainline databases to be extremely frustrating when trying to use them to help set up a new configuration and helping to decide the component choice and spindle lenght etc. to get back to a specific chainline.
    More often than not you'll have either the front or back (or part of) already purchased or you have a specific component/s in mind and would like to know what chainline they will produce before fitting/buying...
    Also listing what components you have and "work for you" front and back is pointless without actual measurements as some times you can get away with a 5mm difference and sometimes you just can't. I don't know why...

    The listings below are from specific entries from the other databases where actual numbers were listed, but again only an indicative "chainline" was given with all components listed. I have my doubts that both the front and the back would be exactly the same but it will at least give a ball park figure and therefore in Italic
