    Will a 156Q BB30 XX Crank fit a 2011+ Scalpel

    I'm considering purchasing a Scalpel and was wondering if anyone knows if the 156Q XX crank will fit the 2011 or newer Scalpel. Obviously it must be BB30 which it is but my concern is crank arm clearance with the chainstays.

    Probably not. The Flash and newer Scalpel frames seem really wide at the chainstays. The Hollowgrams they put on them have a Q factor of 169 and they don't exactly have a ton of space. If the 156 even fits it's going to be way too close to the stays.

    Q is measured from the outside of the cranks and it's the inside measurement that is determinative...I bet they will work.

    I didn't just want it, I went for it...

    I'm not feeling like I'm giving much up other than mud clearance, and in Colorado that's usually not a big issue.
