Hi guys¡

I am just wondering if it could be possible to modify a Shimano Ultegra triple octalink crankset so as to place a chainring in the outer position and shorten the BCD 74 threads to put the other chainring there. I have a problem with clearance and think it could ba an option...

Between chainrings there uses to be a 5mm gap, in this case the gap would be (i pretend) 7-8 mm. Do you think is is a nonsense?

thanks¡¡

Just use a longer spindle and leave the rings where they are.
