What are the options for a single ring set up with specialized cranks?

I wished I could have been able to use carbon ti x mono-ring, but realized that it would not fit in. Chainstays are few millimeters too wide. So I have go with spider that will move the ring outwards.

Specialized spiders, a bit heavy and expensive?

is that road 110 bcd?

Lightning reversible spider, where to buy?

Bor spiders?

EP Mattias custom made? XX1 spider would most likely have a similar chain line problem like x mono-ring.

Other options?

I run the S Works triple on my bike, which is a 1x10, and the chainring is mounted in the middle position.
What kind of bike are you putting it on?

Single speed, titanium frame with 68mm bb, I might need 52mm chain line.

The Specialized crankset allows you to adjust it with a few plastic spacers, but if its not a bb/pf30 frame and you're using Vumaquad cups or the like then I'm not so sure. The Lightning spiders can be ordered directly from Lightning, your best bet is to call them up.

There will not be many millimeters left to play with with. 68 bb shell+10mm cups on each side. I also would prefer the axle be centered.
I will have to install the cups later this week and recheck the chain line.

Tonytourist would you mind checking what is the chain line with that triple spider, and also how much further it would go when placing the ring to the outer ring position ?
