I decided to jump in and build up my first bike and am confident on my research with all the parts except one, the crankset. To add to the confusion I decided to make it SS. My frame is a BB30 - 68mm and I've been mainly considering 3 cranksets with the most important factor being weight and then price somewhat:

SRAM XX Carbon Q(156 or 164) CL(49.5?)
KSA K-Force Light Q(168) CL (Several Sizes)
Extralite E-Bones W Q(160) CL(48.7)

Wheelset: C29 Crossmax with the Mavic Hubs or Stans Arch 29er with Stans/Chris K hubs

They can all be ran SS and the price isn't a major factor. What I'm concerned with is how much the Q-Factor and chainline will affect my setup. Sheldon Browns site has helped a lot but I don't see any information on a good Q-Factor and chainline to start with for a SS rookie. Am I making a mountain out of a mole hill here?
