Im in the process of upgrading to XX but the crank is confusing the hell out of me...

 

 

 

Whats the difference between the 156 and 166??

Putting the XX onto a new frame, hopefully a Lynskey if all goes to plan.

 

 

 

Red, silver and white is the scheme

it refers to the "Q-factor"/ width of the crank. 156mm is preferred by top racing snakes, 166 is pretty much standard on most cranks. because the cran uses a double chainring the design allows for a narrower Q-factor. the issue here is that many frames do not... if you are e-ordering a crank I would suggest sticking with the 166. i have seen very few bikes that can run the 156 without clearance issued on the chainstay.

Thanks morewoodkid!

 

Either a lynskey if i can get one or a Rocky Mountain Team Frame. Something out of the ordinary
