More Info:
Had some problems with the Sram omniums not fitting properly (Had some play and wouldn't clear chain stays) I had to torque down the NDS to eliminate play and had to file down part of the Omnium's spider to make it clear, but it still rubbed the frame, so i just let it spin till it knocked out enough paint for it to clear smoothly. It happens.

I had the same problem. Apparently it's really common. QC issues on SRAM's end. I didn't want to go the filing route, so I went with 75's and didn't have any clearance issues whatsoever. Damn, I love the way the silver Omnium's look though. :( Nice build!

I'm sure we didn't think anything of it because so many people had Omnium's on their Kageros! As soon as I tried to install mine I was like WTF!??!?! Couldn't bare the idea of letting it beat on the chain stay until it made a groove...don't know how you did it?! lol

I haven't ridden it in a group situation yet, so i don't really know how it will effect my attacks. But in general the ride is super solid and smooth compared to the flyte. The geometry is definitely more fit for urban riding the the flyte was. :D

It hurt my soul a little doing it, but a nice little sticker will clean it up.

nice bike.. regarding your crankarm spider hitting your frame, you can look for a hollow bb spacer at your local bike store... ouch... its hurt to know that bout what you did...

yeah, i was desperate at the time. i wish this frame had a crimp or something, but the NDS and drive side chain stays are identical. Had a similar issue on my Flyte frame that i didn't know about til i took it apart. Weird.

I had the same problem with my kagero but after i put the bb spacer (not the normal spacer we put near the stem) the problem is all gone. I used only one bb spacer (I think the thickness is 5mm). Luckily I consulted my local bike store and they gave me advise about it. Can you imagine how frustrated I when trying to figure the spider problem and my big ass chainring. One of the kagero owner that I know even took a hammer and hit the chainstay until it bent inwards. Funny but ouch.

I have a feeling i might be the chainring bolts. With your Miche chainring did you continue to use the SRAM chainring bolts. I remember reading a thread a while back saying that the omnium bolts are quite a but longer and fatter than the average bolt. I might try changing them to a different brand when i change chainrings.

not too sure bout that. but i managed to use back the omnium bolt with the original setting by using the bb spacer. i changed the bolt because the zen chainring is thinner. oh well, perhaps you can try to change the bolt also.
