No not the Norwegian pop super group (word is that dude can still hit those notes), but chainline.

White Industries uses a 47.5 mm chainline.

Modern Shimano and all it's imitators use a 50 mm chainline.

After playing with calipers, rulers and spacers for a bit last night, I think I've got it dialed.

I sure hope so.  Although the thought of having sick watts, being able to flex my cranks and or bb enough to drop a chain sounds awfully macho, I'd rather not have to swap them out.

You know, the throwing away of money and all...

Will be picking your brain on how you lined it all up . . . hoping to sell the full squish in the next week or so and pick up a Swift.
