|115 mm Campy AC-H BB for double?||Velocipedio|

|Just wondering if I would be courting disaster if I replaced the 111 mm AC-H BB on my 'cross bike with the 115 mm spindle model.
The reason I ask is that I have very little clearance between the small chainring and the right chainstay -- about 2.5 mm. It's not rubbing, but I think that, when I take the bike into the mud, this could become a problem.
It seems that the 115 mm spindle would move the crankset out and give me 4 mm more clearance.
The crankset is a double, though. Would this work, or have I been sniffing too much citrus degreaser?

|Should hurt nothing but will more likely give 2mm extra per side.Make sure the derailer has enough travel to go that much furher.|

|That will probably alter your chain line outboard a little. That may or not alter your shifting quality. Some bikes with very short chainstays are real touchy about chainline.|
|2.5 mm is Plenty of clarance. nm||JohnG|
