Anyone got any tips for setting up a Klein Attitude press fit BB so that the correct chainline is achieved (cos my LBS buggered it up!). I believe that the axle should be centred to the frame and bearings whereas the mechanic in my LBS set it up so that the ends of the cranks are equal distance from the chainstays. This has left me with awful chainsuck in the middle ring.

How far away is the middle chainring from the centre of the bottom bracket shell? It may be the correct chainline and a stuffed middlering :(

Cheers for the info guys but not much use unfortunately as its a brand new chainring and the catalogue doesnt give the correct info regarding replacing the axle for one of a different length.

I can never remember if its the chainset or the frame that dictates the chainline. I know its supposed to be either 47.5mm or 50mm. Does it line up with either of these measurements?
Theres more on this at Sheldon Browns Site
