Folks

Hi. My brother has a Pinarello prince with SRAM Red. He is experiencing a problem and was wondering if anyone else has run into it. I didn't see anything in my search of the forum.

He is using a standard RED 53/39 crank with an 11-26 cassette in the back. When in the 53x22 or 24 or 26 the chain angle is so great that the chain is dropping off onto the 39. He is using a SRAM chain and the wheels are Mavic Kysirium SL 2008

I have not had a chance to look at it but a bike shop did, said they couldn't fix it and blamed it on the short chainstays. I checked the specs and it is a 406 which is not short by modern standards. I am thinking the chain is the culprit but want to see if anyone else has run into a similar problem. There is no way to adjust the chain line correct?

Thanks

Jim

Hi. it is a 51.5 but I can't image that would make a difference but who knows.

What chain are you using?

That is what my brother had. He just decided to avoid those gears and go into the small ring sooner. He is away this weekend so I will ask him how it is working these days.
