Take a spacer out from inbetween my bottom bracket tube and my sprocket and put it inbetween my sprocket and my crank arm because my chain alignment is fucked up and I think doing this will fix it.

What?

Edit: Oh I know what you are saying, I forgot to put that the spacer I'm putting between the sprocket and crank arm is the spacer between the bottom bracket tube and the sprocket.

the spacer in between your bottom bracket bearings to keep the bearings spaced correctly is like a 3 inch spacer.

Na like on my bike I have the cone washer space and then next to it are small spacers to keep my cranks from hitting my chainstay and I want to take one or two of them and put them in between my sprocket and crank arm so the chain alignment isn't fucked like it is now.

this will be okay to do, but just make sure that you have atleast 5mm of space in between your chainstay and your crank arm!

27 posts and not a single correct answer. This site is getting shitty.

You can't put a spacer between your sprocket and your crank! The only spacer that should be there is the shim if you have a 22mm sprocket going onto a 19mm spindle, and usually that is on the inside anyways. If you put another spacer there, the only way it would work is if you ALSO put a spacer on the sprocket bolt. Otherwise, you're going to go to tighten your sprocket bolt, and it's going to bend your sprocket into the crank, because the crank is going to be too far from the sprocket. The only way to do what you're saying without spacing BOTH the sprocket and the sprocket bolt is to buy a Tree sprocket, I'd think.

Christ guys, don't talk when you don't know what you're talking about.

I do stuff and I'm not good at it.

Oh shit I didn't think about that. Haha I just found out that my chain alignment is fucked up is because my spindle bolt is gone and the sprocket moved I guess.

Ah yes, that could do it...do you have the right spacer in the sprocket? If you have a 19mm BB spindle, and a sprocket meant for 22mm spindles, you need the spacer in the spindle hole.

Yeah I have the right spacer so it's most likley the spindle bolt. How the hell would that come out while I'm riding though?

Eye Dee Kay dude....maybe it snapped, though I haven't heard of that happening before really...check and make sure it's not sheared off inside the crank.

I already checked the inside of the crank and everything is fine.
