    Hello! Would like to upgrade my Scalpel SE2 with lighter crankset but can't sort out the bb/axle compatibility. The bb shell is 83mm PF30. The cranks I found say 73mm/89.5mm/91.5mm bb. So these are not compatible with my scalpel? I am looking for xx1/stylo carbon cranks.

    My bike currently has a DUB press fit BB92 BB (PIvot Mach 5.5), and I'd really like to get some 150-155mm cranks. Canfield cranks seem to be one of very few options and seem like a great choice, except that they are GXP. I know I can get a GXP BB for my bike, but...isn't GXP kind of obsolete and...

    Hi all. I have a Cube Stereo 140 2018 (non standard parts) with a 92mm BB shell width (kinda wide for the type of bike). The left crank arm fell off, and it looked like there's not enough crank spindle sticking out for it to grip, my local bike shop agreed and suggested an 83mm compatible...

    Hi! i need help choosing the correct oval chainring for my bike. I have an Orbea Alma H30 2020, xc bike, which has an Orbea brand crankset. This brand of crankset ive been told is not supported by absolute black. I took apart the crankset and noticed its very similar to SRAM cranksets but im not...

    I recently got a bike with a standard FSA Alpha Drive crankset, which has a notorious reputation as being pretty flimsy. Keen to upgrade my cranks but other FSA, Race Face and Shimano (between $350-450NZD) options are pretty expensive and close to what I would pay for upgrading my group set for...
  6. Drivetrain
    Hi, I'm trying to find a crankset that will work with a Shimano XT 8000 Bottom Bracket. I also want 165 - 170mm crank arms and a 170mm Spindle if possible I will run a 38t chainring so need the clearance that's why I think I need a 170mm spindle or higher Does anyone have any ideas ??
  7. Wanted
    I'm looking for a set of SRAM Eagle crank arms (DUB BB compatible) if anyone happens to have a set available. They can be any of the following: X1 1000 Eagle - 155mm or 165mm SX Eagle - 155mm or 165mm NX Eagle - 165mm GX Eagle - 165mm Since these are for a shorter rider, the 155mm length is...

    Currently, I have a FLIPPED boost-spaced ring (RF cinch style, 28t oval to be specific, wolftooth BST-RST-28t) - so this is a "+3mm" chainline, with positive being away from the frame. I am considering replacing this with a flipped standard-spaced, eg minus-6mm, ring. So this would move the...

    I got a Nukeproof Scout 290 comp a few months ago and have had tons of issues with the Shimano Deore left crank slipping off. I replaced the crank, and now the new one is slipping off too. Yes, I've taken it to shops, tightened bolts, all that but it doesn't seem to be solving the problem. My...

    First forum post ever; might as well get with the times. I have a 92ish trek singletrack that I am bringing back to life and I am wondering what modern JIS square taper cranks fit this bad boy. I really like the sugino xd600 triple but it seems to top out at 118 mm spindle length on the bottom...

    I saw this crankset online and it is called the Sram SX Eagle but it says: Compatible with 11/12 speeds. Why does it say this and can I run it with a 1x9 drivetrain?
  12. Drivetrain
    I'm going to be upgrading my 2x10 drivetrain to a Shimano XT 1x12. While my current crankset's Q-Factor is 175mm and the chainline is 48.8mm, the Shimano XT 1x12 has a Q-Factor of 172mm and the chainline is 52mm. What, if any, affect will this have on my bike? I'm primarily riding slow tech...
  13. Trek
    Hi dears, just for my curiosity I would like to understand what model of crankset I’ve got on my procaliber 9.7, since there a discrepancy on what is declared on the trek website and the real thing. trek says it’s a SRAM X1 Eagle, DUB, 32T alloy ring, Boost (52mm chainline). but if I search For...
  14. General Discussion
    There are few headaches in the bike world like the current bottom bracket landscape. SRAM aims to unify the current sea of standards with one system without introducing a new shell standard. It is a lofty goal indeed but one worth pursuing. It seems that building up a bike these days is fun...

    What is it If you're looking for a crankset for your next cross-country or enduro race build, the FSA SL-K-392 EVO Modular belongs on your short list. FSA launched its first modular crankset in 2016, and updated it this season with the SL-K EVO 392 Modular. While the name can be confusing, the...

    At $225, these might be the most affordable DH rated carbon cranks on the market. With the launch of SRAM's affordable new 12 speed drivetrain, it was time to beef up their OEM and aftermarket support on the crank side. To answer the call, they've launched four new cranks under the Descendent...

    Hey all, I'm currently building up my Niner one9, and not really too sure which way to go as far as the crank with the EBB. I'm looking in the less than 200$ range. Thanks!
