I could be wrong, but I believe the bottom bracket for that crank is oversized or BB30 and unless you have the same BB setup on the bike you're trying to put it on, it won't work.

Also, if you're doing aggressive riding, this crank may not hold up with it's extremely light construction.

BB shell sizes are either 68 or 73mm. If the shell size is the same, it should fit.

You may run into clearance issues if the frame is not intended on running that crank. A careful test fit will tell you what you need to know.

Well you're going to have to be a bit more help with your posts.

What have you done and what is your problem? General statements about will this crank fit are no help if you've put the thing on and it's hitting the stays. If it hits the stays, it doesn't fit.

Eliflap, I think the best way would be to put the cranks together (off the bike) and measure it with a digital micrometer. Then you would have to compare it to measurements from a mountain crank. For the spider, I think you would have better luck getting one made by mattias seeing as they have been out of stock for a few months now.
