I'm using XTR 960 cranks on my singlespeed and just swapped them to a new frame. The new frame uses a Pressfit BB92 bottom bracket. I've installed the cranks and the driveside crank arm is very close to the hitting the chainstay. It's fine in the workstand but I suspect that it will hit once I get out on the trail and things start flexing. The non-driveside arm as plenty of clearance. Is there any way to add a spacer to move the driveside arm further out? Thanks.

Did you measure your bottom bracket width? Some bottom brackets need a spacer on the drive side of the BB92. Just checked - if it's 89.5 wide it needs the spacer.

Any idea where I can get the spacer you're talking about?

You can not use a spacer and have the crank fit.

As long as the crank arm does not hit the frame, it has enough clearance.
Thanks for the response Shiggy. Guess I'll have to ride it a few times and see if I run into any problems.
