    Crank spindle extenders

    With the need of new cranks in order to fit fat bike applications perhaps a company like problem solvers could come up with a crank spindle extender piece so one can use existing mtb cranks. Just an idea I thought about when recalling seeing this crank design

    We really have enough options now, a year ago I could see it.

    I like your thinking.

    What I'd really like is a setup that used a 100mm ISIS spindle with external BB bearings*, so I could continue to use BB cranks. Very much like the Howitzer, which is spoilt in my opinion by its proprietary crank system. ISIS is a great way to attach cranks.

    *I'd like cup and cone here so it would simply be a matter of popping in new ball bearings at maintenance time - at a cost of pennies.

    I've been thinking the same thing. It seems like it would be so easy for a machinest to pop some toothed extenders out.
