Try it and find out, it might not need spacing, or the spacing night not make your chainline too far out.

Never rode a frame that couldn't fit 28, although I've had one that wouldn't fit 29. 28t is a pretty common size and should work with most frames

Measure your clearance and compare decide if a 28t will fit based on the measurements from this informative thread.

I thought the same thing on my Tall Boy frame running a Shadow Align sprocket, but ended up having a couple mm's of clearance.

Are you using a sprocket that slams to the bottom bracket ( doesn't use a driver side cone spacer) ?

Here you can see the gap (and some dirt whistling still have to clean it so please don't mind) as you can see it isn't much but it works.

Back in the day we would take a ball pein hammer and put a dent in the tube to give us extra room. Works perfect.
