Anyone know the chainline spec on the Bronson off the top of their head? 49mm? 50mm? I thought it was on their site, but I cant find it there.

Chainline is a crankset spec. That said, bikes with 135/142 rear spacing typically work best with a 49-51mm chainline.

Ah gotcha. Thanks. So with my chainring being reversible between 49 and 50 depending on which side you mount it on, it shouldn't make much difference because they're both within that zone.

Yeah the guide ring M. I was curious about the chainline because I looked closely at the ring and it was worn considerably but mainly on the outside of the narrow teeth. But that could be a product of frequently using the lower gears on the cassette. I honest don't know which direction I have the ring mounted in So I'm not sure if it's 49 or 50.

I posted about the wear over in the drivetrain forum.

Note also if you have converted a two speed crank to single the chain line was in the middle of the 2 chain rings
