I was fortunate to have had no alignment issues, but standard steel washers could be used to raise the adapter off the hub to the desired clearance quite reliably.

Can't praise the BicycleDesigner adapter enough...really high-quality stuff. It's held up excellently, and there's been no discernible wear on the custom fat aluminum-alloy sprocket that came with it.

Yea, that was what I did before I made the aluminum spacer. I just thought that all the washers looked kinda trashy.
