    Not much more to it as long as the interface and bolt pattern matches. Lots of guys are running bmx cranks on their DH bikes. Profile makes these conversion spiders.

    ok thats cool i might only run one ring up front anyway. also iv removed and maintained my bmx cranks for ages and have no trouble with it but mtb seems more complex than just unscrewing it and hitting with a hammer. any tips for removal without buying any kind of specialist tool?!

    If you run a single ring with no bashguard you probably won't even need those conversion pieces. Just run your bmx chainring. If you want to run a conventional bashguard/ring setup, you'll "probably" need to swap to the spider setup to attain the 4/5 bolt pattern configuration.
    In reference to removing a "mtn" style crank, I have no easy cheater tricks. I recommend just getting the appropriate crank removal tool to avoid damaging your cranks. They’re only like $10-$15 and well worth the headache they save.
