    Crank GXP short spindle issue

    Just tried to install a new Canfield gxp crank on a bike. The new crank spindle length is 111mm.
    TOO SHORT
    Old spindle Sram X0 crank is 114mm.
    Length is measured from edge were crank meets drive seal to very end of crank shaft.
    Bottom bracket is pf92 no shims or spacers used.
    Canfield stated its made for 68/73 BB
    I thought all should be standard in regards to spindle length.
    Any info would be great.
    Thank You
    Randy

    I would contact Canfield. I noticed that the cranks come with a BB, so perhaps the cranks must be used with the included BB, which may be narrower than a typical BB. I also note that the crankset comes with a spindle spacer, make sure that it is not installed.

    Crankset does include 68/73 bottom bracket. Since I have bottom bracket allready on bike a different style pf92 I disn't use it. I assumed crankset spindle length came in standard length 114mm. Im at a crossroad I could press spindle out and machine spindle or arm 3mm and make up difference.
    The crankset is unique in that it has 155mm crank arms and is direct chainring mount.
    Wife is 5'2" and has had knee issues and this was an option to try.
    Thx
