    xx1 on a fatty possible?

    been riding xx1's on my skinny tire bikes, i wonder, what would it take to modify an xx1 for fatty use? would it be worth it?

    There are enough fatbike riders with xx1 already. So its a yes to that.

    As for whats needed, that depends on the frame/ bike and can't really be asked in general. Just make sure the rear hub is convertable and you won't have a problem modifieing any fatbike for xx1 use.

    For example, Hope FatSno Pro2 Evo Hub + Hope Pro 2 SRAM XX1 Freehub Body.

    The Fatsno is a 170mm hub for the newer bikes.
    When you for instance go for a pugs or moonlander then you can use any standaard hub that has a xx1 conversion kit available.

    Just find out which frame you want to get and then the hubs and go from there.

    The new 9-0-7 carbon frame is considered xx1 qualified. This right from Colin at fatbikes.com

    Coming with the new 9-0-7's. The 190 mm 9-0-7 hub due in September is convertible to the xx1 and through axle for the new carbon frame due out this winter.

    Does Sram make an XX1 crank (or the new X01) that will fit a 100mm bottom bracket shell? I've been searching hard but can't find one.

    It looks to me like you're stuck with X9 or X5 if you have a 100mm bottom bracket shell. I hope I'm wrong about that or that Sram comes up with something soon.

    XX1 cranks

    Some more info on the SRAM's two fat bike (100mm spindle) cranks here: SRAM Unveils X9, X5 Fat Bike Cranksets

    The X9 spider is removable and could be used with this sweet looking XX1 spiderless chain ring: Sram Spiderless but I'm still hoping SRAM comes out with a 100mm XX1 or X01 option.

    Photo caption on that BikeRadar page says,
    It appears that an XX1 crankset with a longer, fat bike-friendly spindle is on the way.
    Now the question is (at least for me), will the new XX1 fat bike crank fit a 100mm English threaded bottom bracket found on aluminum fat bikes or just press fit bottom brackets that the new carbon frames are designed for.

    I use a Middleburn 100mm crank with single chainring.
    Ordered a XX1 style from Works components as my LBS is working with them. Otherwise it would have been a Wolftooth or Absolute Black ring.
    So your definately not limited to Sram cranks. Though i think 38framework has a conversion kit for Sram XX cranks too.
    And with the XX1 crank you can prolly also put in some Chris King, Hope or other manufacturer bottom bracket

    You could always just go 1x10 and mod the cassette to give a wider range there are a few ways you can go about this here's one....
