    New question here. XX1 PF30 Crank Install Help

    Hello everyone. I'm trying to install an xx1 crankset in a PF30 bottom bracket. The bottom bracket is in, but I'm having trouble sliding the crank spindle through the bearings. They are super tight, and it seems as though I'd have to bang the hell out of the crank to get the spindle through.

    I've previously used race face and shimano cranks, both of which were easy to slide through the bottom bracket. Is what I'm experiencing with the XX1 cranks something to be expected? Just want to make sure before I whip out the rubber mallet.

    Thanks!

    Hit it with the mallet! My PF30 with XO is the same way.
