    Sweet. I'm almost 2 years into my drivetrain, and will be looking at XX1 when it wears out. I like the light weight and clean look of the direct mount setups. Maybe the street price will drop by the time I'm ready

    Very nice, but once again, weight savings in the wrong place. A 500g 80mm carbon rim and lighter tires would be more noticeable in performance.

    I just hope it has a chainline similar to the Surly OD. You know how hard it is to find a 94BCD 5-bolt XX1 style ring? This would make my new build so much easier.

    I totally agree about the fact that the best place to save weight is rims and tires. BUT...my carbon fork sure is light and rides really nice. A half a pound here and a half a pound there does add up. Just sayin'. It's also nice that Race Face is at least making an effort to provide additional options for us.

    Will this crank work with

    1) 100mm English bottom bracket on my 2013 aluminum Beargrease? The pinkbike review doesn't say anything about GXP. Damn.

    2) Spiderless XX1 chainring from Absolute Black? Sram Spiderless

    This. ^^^ We all want lighter wheels, but Race Face is only just releasing a standard wheel set. I think it's awesome that they are taking their top of the line products to the fatbike world. Nothing to complain about there.

    1) I would think so. There's nothing unique about the BG BB.
    2) I doubt it, unless AB starts making a spiderless ring with this spline configuration. But why would you want/need to? The RaceFace spiderless ring does the same thing as the AB.

    Yup. Sram, e13, etc. don't offer fatbike versions of their top line cranksets. Puzzling, since it would seem to be as easy as pressing in a longer spindle that they already make. Speaking of pressed in, looks like this crank does not do that - splined on both ends?

    FrY10cK,
    I'd have to agree with SmooveP. BSA means it should work with your Beargrease.

    SmooveP,
    Like you, I'm curious about the spindle. In that Pinkbike post it claims that the spindles are interchangeable. I don't think that "interchangeable spindles" are mentioned on the Race Face website. That would be pretty cool if you could just change spindles depending on what frame you are using, fat bike or not.

    Yes. Your old crank will automatically stop working the minute this one becomes available.

    I would love to save someone the embarrassment of owning an outdated Turbine crankset by taking it off their hands for a very reasonable price.
    And I love beer!!

    My bikes are made of parts that were not as cool as the new parts that just came out!
    Bless those people who need the latest and greatest!! Us bottom feeders love the scrap!
    My bike is heavier than yours - it does not have Carbon or Titanium parts - I love it!

    Would rather get Turbine's and blow the rest on hookers.
