    Tracer 275 XX1 156 Q-factor or 168 Q-factor?

    If I move to XX1 do I want 156 Q-factor or 168 Q-factor? I think 168, I have not found any documentation that helps with the decision process. I have XT now...

    The wider, the better. I currently have a tracer 275 with a Raceface Atlas AM crank which measures 168mm. Static fit is fine, but climbing hills out of the saddle, It hits the either chainstay opposite of whichever side the bottom bracket spacer is on.

    I need to find a wider Q factor crank that fits my frame. Please advise if the 168 XX1 works

    168 XX1 works. I was accidentally sent a 156 crank first - that did not work.

    Two part question here... Let my apologize in advance. First, how do I know the correct q factor for my bike? I have a 90mm BB shell, 175mm cranks, and a gxp pressfit bottom bracket. I want to get an xx crankset, but I don't know what q factor my bike is. Second question: how the hell do I start my own thread/forum? I don't want to keep tagging onto other posts, but I just don't know how to start my own thread. Any help or suggestions will be very much appreciated.
