Right off the bat, I have to adjust a few things like shorten the chain a couple links and adjust the B screw. But this is what I initially noticed today and it doesn't look right:
I'm using a Oneup oval switch chainring on one of their boost (148) spiders, with Shimano XT 12 speed. I think the large cog is 52T or so. The bike is a 2021 Kona Process X.
Anyway, I noticed the chainline is pretty lousy on the largest cog, to the point where the chain fell off as I pedaled around the parking lot. Now granted, the chainring is used to having a 10 speed chain on it so it's possible things need to wear in a bit. But still, that chainline looks pretty extreme even though my hub is 148mm and that Oneup spider is made for a boost drive train.
Is it normal to have a fairly ugly chainline with 148 boost and 1x12??
