    Hard Eddie Q Factor - Will 156 work?

    Hey guys - just about to drop off my bike at my LBS to be built up and as I'm pulling all my parts together I realized that the cranks I purchased off of eBay are Q156 XX1 despite me ordering Q168...crap!

    Does anyone know if the Q156 will work or will it be too narrow?

    A quick reply would be incredibly helpful!

    Thanks!

    Let me know if you figure the answer. I'm about to order a frame and I wonder what Q-factors work for it.

    Also, not to hijack the thread, do you plan to use 32+ chain rings? Would they fit on Hard Eddie?

    Sam of Intense was nice enough to PM a response, "Yes, it should work but we do recommend the larger q-factor cranks for all of our bikes"

    Yes, I plan to run 32 and may try a 34 depending on where I'm riding. So far the 32fr - 11-42 rr was worked out pretty well for me on my Niner Jet 9.

    Yes the narrow Q will work. Easy.
