    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! Q Factor

    Does any one know what's the smallest Q factor for cranks I can use on a 2011 Flash Carbon 3?
    I think Q164 would be ok, but I'm not certain .
    Cheers!

    From what I remember the 156 is too narrow, but the difference between the 164 and the 166 is very small. I would wait for people who are running the XX cranks to weigh in.

    I was looking into this a while ago and I think the 164 will work, The QF on my Hollowgram XX is around 165, with the 132mm spindle.

    I'm running xx on a 2010 carbon flash 29er. 156 is too narrow. 164 works fine.
