With the word “chainline” we mean how straight the chain runs between the front and rear sprocket.Ideally the perfect chain line indicates the front and rear sprocket to be in the same plane so there is not any side motion or stress in the chain.

There are two ways to adjust the chainline.Axle respacing and redishing the wheel so the rim will be in the center and second way rear sprocket spacers.

People believe that if they redish the wheel,then the wheel will becameĀ  weaker.Talking from personal experience this thing does not exist.Wheels remain the same strong before and after redish.

I am in process to create a video showing the whole thing of respacing axle -redishing and check the chainline.
