    Race Face Crank Size?

    I would like to get some cranks for both my Pug & Moonlander. What size though?


    from their website for the Atlas....

    BUILT FOR: FR/DH Racing
    SIZE: 165, 170, 175mm Arm Length & 68/73, 83mm or 100mm BB Shell

    RING CONFIGURATION: 24,36 & Bash SR & Bash SR

    I would also like a bash guard and it shows this:

    BUILT FOR: DH/FR
    SIZES: 4 Bolt (104 BCD) 32, 36 (also used for 34T), 40T
    Compatible with chain ring tabs between 3-4mm (regular tabs)

    Thanks

    Fatbikes take a 100mm BB, SIZE 165/170/175 is crank length - which depends on your personal preference and measurements.
    104BCD (bolt circle diameter) - or the bash guard gets fitted where the big ring would usually be.

    You might want to do some light reading here Sheldon Brown's Bicycle Glossary-B

    Particulary these pages

    Bicycle Cranks
    Sheldon Brown's Bicycle Glossary Bo--Bz

    And if you want a bashguard check out BBG Products 1/2 the price, love them (pick from the 104BCD range).
