    hot rod cranks in 100mm

    Just saw this on groovy cycleworks website:
    Hot Rod Cranks

    looks like a nice option for light steel cranks on a fatbike

    They have shown up here on threads before, simply not mainstream because of the price.

    The price looks competitive enough with E13 and raceface top models, but I see that they list a 188mm Q-factor for the standard ones, so a 100mm one will be about 215-220mm, which is a little wider than most people would want.

    I have seen some people running bmx cranks on fatbikes wider than that though.

    Not really, when you add in the price of the rings and bottom bracket that are included with the others.

    I guess they cost about $100+ more then, which is considerably more, but i just saw that he will only be making 30 total cranksets this year, including the normal sizes, so I guess even if they were competitive, there won't be many 100mm ones available anyways. "Please contact for availability"

    It does say that all current 4 and 5 arm, double and triple BCDs are available, as well as accepting spiderless rings of some sort. It looks like the spider bolts on with 3 very small screws as well as a larger bolt to the crank arm. Who makes a single ring that would fit?

    I was thinking they might make a good choice, being quite stiff, light, and durable with steel arms and a 24mm spingle, with a tri-lobe interface like E13.
