    This is a handcycle

    I'm not sure what relevance the handcycle has?

    I just did a quick measure on a 142x12mm Onyx singlespeed hub and you could go out to about 60mm chainline on it's short freehub body. Most singlespeed hubs that use a short cassette body will have a similarly wide chainline if desired so you could easily use a 52mm Boost crankset, or even a 56mm SuperBoost crankset with a 142x12mm hub without any issues.

    With all due respect we are talking about two different things completely = the ORHC is more like a tandem, but to keep it on the OP:

    FWIW, yes, I have been building 29ers with a Boost front and a 135 QR rear for some time like this one, this is just what a different client wanted so he could also run a Boost GEARED drivetrain as well.
